Managing Your Team: Adding and Removing Collaborators in Creative Cloud Libraries

Creative Cloud Libraries empower seamless collaboration by allowing you to share design assets with colleagues and teams. But as project needs evolve, you might need to adjust your collaboration settings by adding or removing individuals. This article explores how to manage collaborators within your Creative Cloud Libraries.

Adding New Collaborators

1. Accessing Your Library:

  • Open the Creative Cloud desktop app or navigate to the "Your Libraries" section on the Creative Cloud website.
  • Locate the specific library where you want to add collaborators.

2. Initiating the Invitation:

  • Click the ellipsis (...) icon next to the library name.
  • Select "Invite people..." from the dropdown menu.

3. Inviting and Setting Permissions:

  • Enter the email addresses of the individuals you want to invite, separated by commas.
  • Choose the desired permission level: "Can edit" allows collaborators to modify and add assets, while "Can view" provides read-only access.
  • Optionally, add a personalized message in the message box.
  • Click "Invite" to send the invitations.

4. Managing Invitations:

  • Invited collaborators receive an email notification and can accept or decline the invitation.
  • Once accepted, they will have access to the library based on the assigned permissions.

Removing Existing Collaborators

1. Accessing Collaboration Settings:

  • Follow steps 1 and 2 mentioned above to access the library options.

2. Managing Collaborators:

  • Select "Manage collaborators" from the dropdown menu.
  • This displays a list of current collaborators and their assigned permissions.

3. Removing Collaborators:

  • Click the "X" icon next to the name of the collaborator you want to remove.
  • Confirm your choice in the pop-up window.

4. Revoking Access:

  • Removing a collaborator revokes their access to the library and its contents.
  • Any changes they made previously will remain in the library history.

Important Considerations

  • Only library owners can add or remove collaborators.
  • Ensure clear communication with collaborators when adding or removing them from a project.
  • Consider the impact on project continuity when removing collaborators with editing permissions.

By effectively managing collaborators, you can maintain control over your Creative Cloud Libraries and ensure efficient teamwork throughout your creative projects. Remember to choose appropriate permission levels and communicate changes clearly to maintain a smooth and productive collaboration environment.
