Want to know when Creative Cloud product updates get released?
IT admins have mentioned on several occasions that there is no consistent method for them to be notified when updates are released for the Creative Cloud Products. In many circumstances this puts IT admins on the back foot and user’s sometimes become aware of the updates before IT. We (you) of course don’t like when user’s know something first it makes us look bad and it makes user’s think they just got one up on us. We cannot allow this, so inevitably this leads to deleting their profile, changing their password or deleting some required startup files. As someone who likes peace and harmony I felt it was my duty to remove this potential source of conflict.
Today we have released a new feature in the Deployment section of the Enterprise dashboard. It is now possible to subscribe to e-mail notifications. When you subscribe we will e-mail you on a weekly basis and let you know what updates have been released in the preceding week for the Creative Cloud and what those updates contain. The idea is that this will allow you to be more informed and more prepared. If you would like to implement your own patch day and you get a weekly e-mail let’s say every Tuesday then you could potentially have a patch day on Wednesday knowing what has been released and what was contained in those updates.
We made a cognisant decision to do this weekly rather than every time a product releases an update. If this needs to be changed then this is something we can revisit but we did not want your inbox’s to be overloaded or for the e-mails to carry less significance.
This feature is now live so feel free to subscribe.
Finally as a reminder this page gives an overview of the different update options available.
