Starting with version 6.0, AEM received a new user interface call 'Touch-optimized UI' (also known simply as 'touch UI') that is aligned to the Adobe Marketing Cloud and to the overall Adobe user interface guidelines.
While most capabilities are present in the Touch-optimized UI, there are features that are not yet complete and will be added in future releases.
The following list shows the current status of the capabilities as implemented in AEM 6.2.
For recommendations for customers that upgrade to AEM 6.2, please read User Interface Recommendations for Customers
Please note that this page only covers Classic UI feature-parity in the Touch-optimized UI.
Capabilities added and unique to the Touch-optimized UI that are not present in the Classic UI are not listed.
This list strives to be complete, but should not be considered exhaustive.
- Complete: The feature is fully available in the Touch-optimized UI
- Mostly: The feature is mostly available in the Touch-optimized UI.
- Missing: The feature is not present in the Touch-optimized UI, the Classic UI has to be used to do this action.
- Replaced: The feature was replaced with a new implementation that works differently.
- Removed: The feature no longer exists in the Touch-optimized UI and will not be replaced.
