Adobe Templates are pre-created Named User Licensing packages 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.

Customize and download packages based on Adobe Templates

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. Alternatively, you can add products of Adobe Technical Communications Suite(TCS), Adobe Captivate, RoboHelp, FrameMaker, and Presenter, that are not part of either of the clouds.

The template that you customize with the products of TCS, does not provide all the customization options available in the template for Creative Cloud apps.
