All tagged 2016-45 How Team Projects Changes the Way You Work

Want to learn more about Adobe Team Projects? This blog post by Mark Christiansen gives one of the first in-depth looks at the new Team Projects (beta) now available in the CC 2017. Mark covers a bunch of little known details about Team Projects, for example: Team Projects is currently available only to Creative Cloud for Teams and Enterprise users. Also, features like Dynamic Link are not yet supported in the beta version Team Projects. 

The latest version of Creative Cloud adds a set of features collectively known as a Team Project. Team Projects is a feature that is so new and different, it tends to raise inaccurate assumptions as to what it is or does. It is also currently in beta, and not available to all users. Here’s a look at what it does, how it works, and how it could change post-production collaboration. —Mark Christiansen,
