Adobe Connect Central is the web-based portal that allows all the registered users to create and manage their Adobe Connect sessions. The portal also allows Account Administrators to administer the account.
Adobe Connect Central is re-created in HTML so Flash is not required to access the home page. The home page is redesigned for ease of use -- you can quickly create new and access your existing meetings, recordings, trainings, and training catalogs from a single page. For these listed Adobe Connect sessions, you can take appropriate actions like launch a meeting room, edit a session, or enroll in training.
You can access the portal at:
- Hosted Adobe service: https://[accountname].adobeconnect.com
- Licensed users can access it on the domain provided by their administrators.
To revert to the previous, Flash-based experience, click View the old experience in the upper-right corner.
You can use the Create button to quickly achieve one of the following:
- Create a Meeting
- Upload Content
- Create a Virtual Classroom, a Course, or a Curriculum
- Create an Event
You see only the options that are available for your role and that you have permission to create. Contact your administrator for the other options.
My Meetings tab shows all meetings the logged in user has access to. You can filter these meetings by your access rights in the meetings. Alternatively, to see a list of the meetings that you created, click Created by me.
In the meeting list, hover over a meeting row to see and use the access buttons to see meeting details, edit the meetings, or open the meeting room. Hover the pointer on a meeting row and click the relevant icons to see details of a meeting, edit a meeting, or to launch the meeting room. You can sort the meetings by any of the column headings.
Click View the old experience, to revert to the old experience that uses Flash Player.
You can find all the recordings owned by you, directly in the My Recordings tab. You can sort the list of recordings, search for recordings, or launch a recording. Use a minimum of three characters in the search field to search through the recording names.
If a meeting room is deleted and its recordings moved to the Content Library, the recording continues to display in the My Recordings tab.
The My Training tab shows all the training or learning objects that you are enrolled in. You can filter the list based on your actions required or your results. For example, all the trainings that you have to complete or the ones in progress. You can toggle between seeing or hiding details.
The Training Catalog tab lists all the available learning objects that the logged in user can enroll in. You can browse through the list of courses and curricula and enroll after seeing the details. To see the details and to enroll or view a training, hover the pointer over a row and click the Information icon.
The Search field at the upper-right corner of the Adobe Connect Central home page allows you to search recordings, courses, presentations, and more using keywords.
On typing a search keyword and pressing Enter or on clicking the Search label, the HTML Search page opens.
In the Search bar, click against Title & Description to see the drop-down list of the following search options:
- Title & Description (Default) Select to search content, meetings, trainings, seminars, folders or all of these by title and description and specify search keywords.
- Author Select to search by author and specify search keywords.
- Within Content Select to search for the specified keywords in your content.
Press Enter to search.
To further narrow down your search, you can filter by the categories available below the Search bar, including Meeting, Training, Seminar, and Content. And then, click next to the Search bar.
If you select the Training category, you can click against All Types to further select the type of training–Course, Curriculum, or Virtual Classroom. If you select Content, you can click against All Types to further select the type of content–Acrobat PDF, Authware, Captivate, and so on.
To search for information within a date range, click against Date Range and select start and end dates. Date Range is available only for the Title & Description and Author search options.
Detailed results are displayed in a scrollable table. In the table, you can do the following:
- Click a column header to sort the results.
- In the Title column, click the name of an item to open it for viewing. Click a parent folder to open the folder that contains the item.
It is possible to have access to an object, but not to the folder containing the object.
