Utilising InDesign with one account at the same time on two PCs

Hi,

 

We've been given the following scenerio from a client and want to provide the right answer.

 

We just want to clarify how the licensing but also how InDesign works if two people use the same license at the same time. Does the way the licensing actually works is that it can be loaded on say one person's PC and also say their home laptop - so they can utilise two PCs BUT not at the same time?

If two separate people use it and at the same time, how does it behave? Should they get prompted that it cant be used concurrently and close the program, or would the program perhaps crash? And is there say personal settings synced with an adobe cloud account - so if a user has personal settings set in Adobe InDesign, are these saved and then brought down to the 2nd PC linked to the same license?

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

You can install the creative cloud subscription on as many computers as you like.

How many licenses do you get with Adobe Creative Cloud?
Your individual Creative Cloud license lets you install apps on more than one computer and activate (sign in) on two. However, you can use your apps on only one computer at a time.
 

INSTALL ON MORE THAN 2

You can install your app on two or more computers.

STAY SIGNED IN ON 2

You can remain signed in to the app on up to two computers.

USE ON 1

You can use your app on only one computer at a time.

 

If you are using the the software on another computer - and someone else is logged in and using the software - one computer will be prompted to log out.

A single CC license is for ONE person that uses multiple computers (work/home, tower/laptop, etc.). You can install it on more than two computers but only two can be activated at once. 

 

While technically possible, two different users is not what the license allows for. The client should look into a Team license.
