    Need More Info  ·  Anonymous responded

    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…

    1. Designers, editor/writers, photo editors — should all be able to access the file.

    2. Use case: proofreader finds a typo, they go into the file and resolve it; the photo editor replaces an image with an updated retouched image; a designer updates the margins — all permission-enabled actions. Collecting feedback and having only one person implement wastes precious time.

    3. All file types that allow text, imagery, and layout to be updated.

    4. The web-based service allows non-Creative Cloud subscribers to contribute to text edits (proofreader, editor). But the photo editor and design roles require Creative Cloud access for their roles.

    5. InCopy — requires a tedius "prep, post, check-in checkout" process. Would be great to just share the file via cloud and allow role-based permissions.
