What plans are available for Creative Cloud for teams?

Adobe offers two Creative Cloud for teams plans — Complete and Single App. The complete plan offers everything you need to do your best work, including all Creative Cloud apps and services, exclusive business features, 100GB of cloud storage for file sharing and collaboration, Adobe expert support, and centralized admin tools. If you need only one CC product, the single-app plan includes access to the latest version of one CC desktop app of your choice such as Photoshop® CC or Illustrator® CC, Behance® ProSite, 20GB of cloud storage for file sharing and collaboration, and centralized admin tools.

What is included in the Creative Cloud for teams complete plan?

The complete plan gives you:

  • The latest version of all CC desktop apps, including Photoshop CC, Illustrator CC, After Effects® CC, Acrobat® XI, Lightroom® 5, and many more as well as updates and upgrades the moment they are released
  • Access to all Creative Cloud services such as Behance ProSite, Digital Publishing Suite, and Business Catalyst®
  • 100GB of online storage for file sharing and collaboration
  • Two one-on one sessions per year with Adobe expert support
  • Centralized administrative tools to add, manage, and reassign seats

What is included in the Creative Cloud for teams single-app plan?

The single-app plan gives you:

  • The latest version of one CC desktop app of your choice (such as Photoshop CC or Illustrator CC) and access to all of the other CC apps as a free 30-day trial, as well as updates and upgrades the moment they are released
  • 20GB of online storage for file sharing and collaboration
  • Centralized administrative tools to add, manage, and reassign seats

What’s the difference between the Creative Cloud single-app plan sold on Adobe.com and the new Creative Cloud for teams single-app plan available from resellers? Why does the team plan cost more?

The plan sold on Adobe.com is intended for individuals, not volume licensing customers. Unlike an individual plan, which belongs to a person, a Creative Cloud for teams membership belongs to and stays with the organization. The team plan comes with an Admin Console to centrally purchase and manage the subscription, including the ability to re-assign the membership to another team member as needed. It also comes with Creative Cloud Packager, a tool to centrally package and deploy the CC apps, as well as manage updates. Individual plans sold through Adobe.com must be purchased with a credit card while Creative Cloud for teams plans can be purchased through a reseller using a purchase order.

Why does Creative Cloud for teams cost more than Creative Cloud for individuals?

A team membership includes all of the great features and benefits that come with an individual membership, plus:

  • Centralized administration: A centralized purchasing and license management console to easily assign and transfer seats at no cost, add seats, and track usage.
  • Centralized deployment: Centrally deploy all apps or a customized subset. Admins can also block services and online storage access while on the corporate network.
  • Additional storage for the complete plan: 100GB of storage per user—five times what individual or single-app Creative Cloud members have.
  • Expert support: Exclusive access to Adobe experts via 1:1 sessions (two per year, per person).

Do I need ongoing Internet access to use my Creative Cloud desktop applications?

No. Your Creative Cloud desktop applications (such as Photoshop and Illustrator) are installed directly on your computer, so you will not need an ongoing Internet connection to use them on a daily basis.

You will need to be online when you install and license your software. If you have an annual membership, you’ll be asked to connect to the web to validate your license every 30 days. However, you’ll be able to use products for 180 days even if you’re offline.
