Adobe announced that they are launching the following new capabilities of the Adobe Admin Console to provide a better administration experience for enterprise products sold through the Value Incentive Plan (VIP):

  • Greater visibility into user compliance and appropriate actions to get compliant
  • View and download a list of users that need renewal on assigned licenses
  • Receive alerts via product card and view users that are pending payment
  • See expiration date for unpaid licenses
