Deployment of user settings

We have about 50 Creative Cloud users, which need to have the exact same user settings for InDesing. I could'n find anything that allows us to define every setting of InDesign, pallets, scripts etc.

 

I found out, that there are packages I can define. But the guide is very unspecific on the settings I can predefine.

Until now I must setup every user manually. But early next year we getn new hardware for everyone and I really don't want to do the setup 50 times. It takes around 2-3 hours each.

 

We use JAMF for the Mac deployment. The users only have the CC Desktop App and install the programs they need themselfs. That is handy for the genreal deployment, but makes it unable to setup any user and program beased settings.

 

Are there any solutions?

@Steffen Liss we captured the preference files from one user (me) and then built a separate JAMF deployment thats triggered after the user has logged in. This allowed us to deploy the ID preferences, scripts, and Print/PDF presets. The issue is the preferences/settings are stored in the user library, not system. We've never tried to deploy a workspace - we leave that up to the individual to setup. InDesign will migrate previous settings as well if you have overlap - we keep the original version installed for a period of time allowing users to launch the newly installed version to auto migrate settings from previous. We then remove the original at a later date.
