Team projects for all full CC licenses.
I currently have a Creative Cloud One year Membership in which I can't utilize team projects. I work in collaboration with other editors but we live in different areas and finance our own equipment and software. We all have full CC memberships but can't collaborate efficiently.
In April 2020, we announced that we were making Team Projects available to all Creative Cloud customers:
We have decided to continue this offer. While I don't have information to share today regarding our long term plans to make this change permanent, we know that collaboration is very important to many of our customers. We'll have more to share about this later in the year.
And, as product manager at Adobe of video and audio cloud workflows, I'm always interested to hear how our customers would like to collaborate and how we can help. Reach out to me if you'd like to talk one-on-one.

I am a product manager for Premiere Pro, and I would love to talk to any/all of you about collaboration needs for video production. We are doing some user research right now and I'm sure you all have a lot of good ideas and requirements you could share with our team.
Absolutely! It's making it very difficult for me to collaborate effectively with my co-editor who lives remotely. We both have subscriptions for our own sole-operator businesses, why can't we work as a team? Collabortaive work is the future. Very frustrating.
I personally use "Shared Project" (which is very different from "Team Projects"), across the internet with a synchonisation tool (MegaSync), and I found it to be great once you setup the project.
No special membership, no special project format, no dependency on Adobe's servers, and no weird conflict manager.
Seriously, it works great.

In this day with the way practically all editors work, team project is a necessity even for single users.
Please consider adding this.

Please add Team Project support for individual CC accounts.
With the lack of team project support in individual CC accounts VS the current business accounts model - adobe is failing to provide a service to the subsect of people who will probably be utilizing it the most.
Many freelancers, myself included, are collaborating on larger scale projects (feature films / animation etc) with either other freelance individuals, assistants or even businesses and we are unable to utilize these services strictly due to the financial model which requires the accounts to be linked to a single billing / admin account instead of managed separately.
This becomes problematic in a situation where an individual (a freelance editor for instance owning their own private individual CC account) is looking to collaborate on 2 different projects with 2 separate teams. one might be for a larger company for instance the other one might be for feature film.
currently that editor would have to cancel their account and be added to one or the other - something that limits the freelancers freedom of work and complicates each productions license matters (as often people get hired for a month or two at most).
additionally - the ability to do this work remotely via the cloud is something that is most likely to be utilized with freelancers vs production studios as production studios often are localized and can utilize other options like 'shared project'.

As a freelance editor, I completely agree!

"Right now if you have an individual plan, you don't have access to this feature, and that's ridiculous!" - No Film School (https://nofilmschool.com/2018/09/upgrade-adobe-software)
I completely agree with that quote.
It would be tons of help to actually collaborate with others without using any workarounds. Since the feature has already been built it shouldn´t be that big of a change for Abobe but quiet the change for all of us.

Agreed. So needed!!
A thousand times this! Would be super useful.

I also can't stress this need more! I work with others remotely, sharing project files leaves us prone to the project bloat and overall instability. If you're really making stability and optimization a priority, your collaborative solution needs to be at the center of that conversation... and not just for business level users as you're forcing individuals and freelancers to use ineffective workflows and workarounds.

I support this one so much! I have a team-account but I'd like to collaborate with other editors who may have an individual account and it is so frustrating to find out that you cannot use this feature. Please open it to all CC memberships.
