Adobe Creative Cloud App

For employees:

To use the Adobe Creative Cloud Applications on the PC, the Adobe Creative Cloud App is required as a central application, through which Adobe applications such as Acrobat Professional or Photoshop are installed and also updated. For all devices centrally administered by URMZ, the Adobe Creative Cloud App will be automatically distributed from June 8, 2020.

After distribution, the Adobe Creative Cloud App will be located in the start menu, but also directly on the Windows desktop to make the changeover clear to users.

When opening the Adobe Creative Cloud App for the first time, you need to log in with your Adobe Enterprise ID. After activation by the URMZ and your myAdobe registration via the portal of the Thüringer IT-Zentrum (ITZ), this is the university e-mail address (Figure 1). The Adobe Creative Cloud App starts in the "All Applications" section.  There you can select the required application and download and install it by clicking on "Install" (Figures 2 and 3). If an application is no longer needed, it can be uninstalled in the same way (Figure 4).

The installed applications can be accessed either via the Adobe Creative Cloud App or, as usual, via the Start menu.

The system tray icon (bottom right) provides quick access to the Adobe Creative Cloud App at any time. A small red dot indicates completed installations, available updates, etc. (Figure 5).

If updates are available for the installed Creative Cloud applications, they can be quickly and easily brought up to date and made secure in the Adobe Creative Cloud App via the "Update" area and a click on "Update all" (Figure 6). The URMZ attempts to update the installed applications automatically (weekly) wherever possible.

For students:

To use Adobe products in PC pools of the University of Erfurt, a so-called Adobe Enterprise ID is required. This can be obtained by registering once via the portal of the Thuringian universities for teaching in PC pools. Simply follow the steps described on the webside.

After registration, you will receive an e-mail to your university account, which contains a link to create your Adobe ID. 

Afterwards you can log in to the Adobe Creative Cloud on devices of the University of Erfurt and thus use Adobe products. The installation of further software from the Creative Cloud or private use at home is not possible.
