Adobe Templates are pre-created that are available for you to download from the Packages tab in the Admin Console. They are either single-app packages or collection packages created by Adobe. These packages are created based on default settings. You can choose to download packages based on the available Adobe Templates. You can also use the available templates as boilerplate to create packages.
Single-app packages also include the Creative Cloud desktop application-only package, which allows you to install the Creative Cloud desktop application.
To deploy a package based on an Adobe Template, you will need to build and then download the package.
An Adobe Template provides you with the boilerplate applications and configurations as defined by the template. When creating a package, you can choose to create the package from scratch. Alternatively, you can find the Adobe Template that comes closest to matching your requirements and use it as the starting point.
When you customize a template, you can add products that are part of Creative Cloud or Document Cloud or you can add products, such as Adobe Captivate and Presenter, that are not part of either of the clouds.
