Create a cloud service for InDesign where files can be worked on by numerous people at the same time. Will help save time and encourage collaboration. Like Google Docs, Slides, etc.
Thanks for making this request. In order to understand the use-case more better I have a few questions:
1. Whats the role of the different people working collaboratively on the same file. Are they always only designers or are other personas also involved.
2. What is the use-case here, some parts of this request suggest an Editorial collaboration whereas others suggest collaboration amongst different designers. I am trying to separate these 2 requests out.
3. What are the different kind of files (brochures, books, magazines etc) for which this is required.
4. Does it need to be a web based service, or having the user be able to collaborate on one shared file using InDesign or InCopy on the Desktop will work? What is the advantage you feel over a web-service over the desktop app?
5. How do you workaround this need today? What are the most important problems with the current workaround?
I totally agree with Anne-Marie! I was also really disappointed to find the InDesign/InCopy workflow collaborating via E-Mail. I was searching an hour for "Save the inCopy-file in the CC)! And now I'm wondering if there's no comment from an adobe-staff since September 20 … This is not a really lively forum. Just a few posts … this must be possible … But it seems like no one take care of the users-opinion … :-( And the user doing a good job in delivering adobe new ideas and showing them how far away they are from competitors cloud-services …

We try to implement this right now in our publishing house. We are trying very hard to make an Indesign/Incopy workflow work with a team spread out over the country. It's hard right now.

Once again I'm dealing with a magazine client who moved to CC for Teams so they could all use the CC Files workspace for an InDesign/InCopy workflow, in lieu of a shared server. They are bitterly disappointed that this logical place to store live publication files doesn't work reliably with check-in/check-out etc. They're going to try GSuite next, which is what they're all using, no fileserver in site. They are totally cloud-based. The "Creative Cloud" name led them astray. I would love to see this rectified.
