The app’s Profile tab is where users can tell their story and promote their work. They have the opportunity to get discovered and increase their creative opportunities by tagging their profile with specific skills, specialties and expertise, making it easier for others to find and connect.

They can also communicate with others in Messages, which makes it easy for users to stay in touch with one another.

Collaboration is simple with the Pro Tools Projects tab. Users can easily invite and add any of their contacts to collaborate on projects. They can also accept or decline invitations to collaborate on others’ projects; view what content and changes have been shared; send messages to fellow collaborators; and get notified when others have done the same.

Manage products with ease in Products where users can easily manage, download, install, update, redeem, and renew their purchases and plans—and view all applications, licenses, plug-ins, and account info—all in one space. Users can also get access to the latest installers and documentation—or set up automatic software updates.
