Share a project with others to edit, modify, and comment


Adobe ended the Adobe Story CC service on January 22, 2019. Both Adobe Story CC and the Adobe Story CC (Classic) are discontinued. The Adobe Story CC offline application has also ended. See End of service FAQ for more information.

You can share a project with another user as co-author, reviewer, or reader.


 Co-authors can add, modify, or delete content from the script. However, they cannot delete the script itself. Co-authors can also, like reviewers, comment on the script.


Reviewers cannot edit the content, but can add comments to the script.


Readers can only read the script but cannot view comments on the script, edit the script, or view the sharing information.

Only an author can delete a document in a shared project, whereas author and co-author can add documents. The author owns any document created in a shared project. Documents added to the shared project are automatically shared. When co-authors/reviewers/readers delete a project shared with them, the project is unshared with them and removed from their Projects view. In a shared project, Adobe Story notifies collaborators about comments in the documents. However, collaborators can also unshare a project.

    The Share Project dialog lists users with whom a project is shared. Invitees who haven’t yet accepted a share request are listed as well.

  3. Select a role for the person and click +.

  4. To add another person to the list, type the email address of the person in the Invite Users text box. Repeat to add more people with whom to share the project.

Story remembers your share settings, so that you can easily reuse them for other projects.
