Add a user to your team by adding them to a product in the Admin Console. It is the same as assigning a seat to the user.

Assign a seat to a user

Quick help
To assign a seat to a user, go to Admin Console > Overview > Assign Users.

 Sign in to the Admin Console as an administrator. 

Sign in

 Click Assign Users under the desired Creative Cloud app.

Click Assign Users

 The Assign Users link is displayed only for products that have unassigned licenses.

 Type the name or email address for the user.

Add user

 Click Save.


An email is sent to the user confirming access to Creative Cloud.

You can also add multiple users at a time through CSV upload. For more information, see Manage Users.

 By default, administrators don't have access to Creative Cloud. If an administrator requires access, you must assign them to a product.

Add a secondary admin

Quick help
To add a secondary admin, go to Admin Console > Users > Administrators > Add Admin.
Add admin

It’s useful to have another system administrator in case account-level issues arise, and you aren’t available to respond. To avoid potential disruptions in your service, we recommend adding one or more administrators.

  1. In the Admin Console, navigate to Users > Administrators, and then click Add Admin.
  2. Type the name or email address, and then click Next.
  3. Select the System Administrator as the Admin type, and then click Next.
  4. Review your selection, and the click Save.

A confirmation email is sent to the newly added administrator.


Next steps

Now that you've added users, explore the other capabilities of the Admin Console, and access Support resources to manage your teams account.
