Adobe Creative Cloud and Slack bring creative work and teamwork together. With the Creative Cloud for Slack app, designers can easily share their work, get feedback, and stay up to date on actions taken on their assets.
Getting this error message means that the app is not listed as an approved app for your workspace. To request approval from the workspace owner, do the following:
|Creative Cloud file formats||Creative Cloud Library elements||File types|
|.ai, .indd, .psd, .dn, and .xd||Library folders, fonts, and colors||.jpg, .jpeg, .png, and .svg|
When you paste the public link of the Creative Cloud asset you want to share in the message box, a preview of the corresponding asset is displayed.
With public sharing, recipients get read-only access to your assets, which means they cannot upload, update, or delete them. To learn how to create a public link to a Creative Cloud asset, see Share Creative Cloud files, libraries, prototypes, and more.
To ensure that your team is updated with progress and activity on your Creative Cloud files, subscribe a link to a Creative Cloud file in a channel. The bot then notifies your channel members about comments and updates that happen on the subscribed link.
- You can only subscribe links to XD files and files stored in Creative Cloud assets.
- Non-owners cannot subscribe a link to a channel.
- Subscription pauses when the link owner is signed out of the Creative Cloud for Slack app. They should reauthenticate to enable the activity stream feature again.
- The channel doesn't receive notifications for the comments and activities by the link owner.
Notifications are enabled by default, but you can manage them. Only link owners can change notification settings for a link subscribed to a channel.
When someone requests access to a password-protected XD link, you receive a notification in your Creative Cloud bot. You can grant or deny access to them directly from Slack. The requestor receives a notification on their Creative Cloud bot, if they have installed the app.
The Creative Cloud bot sends messages directly to you whenever comments are left on links to Adobe XD prototypes and design specs, Creative Cloud Files, and Document Cloud files.
Who receives notifications?
- The asset owner receives notifications when reviewers add comments, modify comments, or reply to comments.
- Other users who are part of that thread or have been mentioned using @ will receive notifications.
Notifications are enabled by default. You can manage notifications by typing /adobe-manage in the Creative Cloud bot.
The Creative Cloud for Slack app also supports French, German, Japanese, and Spanish languages. The Adobe Creative Cloud bot responds to your preferred Slack language.
When someone mentions your name or comments on a shared file, you can respond to the comment directly from Slack via a thread. Use threads when someone asks a question you know the exact answer to, without the need to open up the link.
Currently, this feature in not available in the channel where a link has been subscribed. Once you install the app, you can start a thread to respond to comments in the bot.
If you're logged out, you need to reauthenticate your account first. Click Sign in, when prompted, and then follow the onscreen instructions.
To share a private XD link, paste it in the message box of the individual or a channel and press Enter. You can also share password protected private XD links. The recipients of these links have to enter a password to access the link.
When you send a private XD link, the bot notifies you about how many members in the channel were added as reviewers to the private XD link from XD web app when it was created. It also prompts you to invite the remaining members of the channel to collaborate on the link. To invite the remaining members, select Yes, invite the channel, otherwise click No. If you click yes, the invited members are added as reviewers on your private XD link.
