  1. Manage non-active user subscriptions

    A date of last logged on or usage would be helpful in managing user subscriptions who hasn't used the Adobe product in the last 2-3 months. This will help remove abandon subscriptions.

  2. Admin Console user usage

    Can we please have the ability to view the usage history of Acrobat Pro by users? It would help in determining licensing management.

  3. Send monthly Creative Cloud invoices to my email automatically

    I know how to access my invoices but it is a hassle, time consuming and easy to forget.

    Please send me my invoices by email automatically.

    I shouldn't have to log into my creative cloud account, find my latest invoice and click an email me button. Creative Cloud should send me my invoice automatically.

    Adobe is able to send me tips, marketing information and other rubbish automatically but the one thing I want, it can't do.

    The people reviewing these messages seem to think it is smart to ignore requests by many hundreds of people or even to merge it…

  5. Include Direct Installer links for Acrobat DC to the Adobe Admin Console Create a Package options

    The "Create a Package" option of the Adobe Admin Console's Packages link for enterprise licenses only offers a "Self-Service Package" that does not allow for MECM deployment and Customization Wizard customizing, or a "Managed Package" that also forces the Creative Cloud Application Desktop Manager.
    Please include the third option of a Direct Installer Package that allows us to find, download, and customize an Adobe Acrobat-only installation (https://helpx.adobe.com/in/acrobat/kb/acrobat-dc-downloads.html).

  8. Features not being used in the last x days

    Much like another feature being requested, I would like to see a breakdown in the Admin console of not just licenses allocated or used, but also when they were last used.

    For example, do I have a user that just opens/reads PDF's all day and doesn't need Standard DC, or do I have a user that isn't using all the features of Pro and could be downgraded to Standard?

    We have close to 3,000 users of Adobe products, it is going to be a tedious pain in my rump if I have to automate the removal of ALL the installed…

  9. Acrobat DC uninstalls Acrobat Reader

    When installing even the testversion of Acrobat DC the Acrobat Reader disapears. Seems to be uninstalled. After the trial I need to uninstall Acrobat DC and install the Reader again. This is not acceptable, as there is no hint at the installation of Acrobat DC!

  11. Adobe Reader won't update if the ***** desktop is locked

    I don't want programs randomly creating shortcuts on my desktop, so I deleted everything in C:\Users\Public\Desktop and locked that folder (if I want stuff on my desktop I put it in C:\Users<my name>\Desktop).

    The problem is that now when Adobe reader tries to update, it says that the update failed because it can't create a shortcut in C:\Users\Public\Desktop. But that's just the point, I don't want it to create a shortcut there. I want it to update anyway, but without creating a shortcut.

    If it can't create a desktop shortcut, it should just ignore that and update anyway. Or even…

  15. Adobe shortcut on desktop unable to be deleted unless admin and it keeps getting added back no matter how many times IT deletes it!

    Stop adding the Adobe shortcut on desktop that users are unable to deleted unless admin privileges are entered. Every update its another email to IT to ask them to delete it.

  16. Adobe DC was renewed, but will not start, keeps asking me to renew

    I just renewed my Adobe subscription for Adobe DC, payment made via Credit Card. The Adobe splash screen indicates I have updated and renewed my subscription. When I try to use Adobe in MS Word, I am told it does not work because my subscription has lapsed.
    I am on a DEADLINE, this is not helpful.

  17. Licensing

    This feature request is raised in behalf of user
    Adobe serial number prompt for subscription user
    This error occured due to old license file which was available on system as Acrobat was transitioned from 2017 to Acrobat Pro DC.

    Issue is resolved by adding IsNGLEnforced serial key.

    • If adding registry is fixing the issue, it should be available by default on every system when application is installed. -It will eliminate such error in future.

  19. I cannot even INSTALL the **** software!

    I just started by 7 day trial! And BOY am I hating this **** thing! I cannot even INSTALL things! It is permanently either downloading or installing or upgrading. Simple things like if I added a video file I can NEVER delete or move it! BIZARRE! I cannot see videos (I can only hear sound) I added in the Adobe Acrobat - DC, yet my wife who has only Adobe Reader can see the videos. Bizarre!
