Using the Admin Console, you can view, track, and delete packages.

You can view, track, and delete the packages created by you and your peer administrators for the same organization. You can also track version upgrades to the apps in a particular package, and plan to deploy those upgrades accordingly.

The Packages page in the Admin Console displays the list of the various packages relevant to your organization. It includes Adobe Templates that have been customized and user-created packages.

Note:

The list does not display packages that you have created using the Creative Cloud Packager.
