Adobe CCLibraries Access
Being able to sync elements from an Adobe CC library or build a brand using elements from a library would allow for so much more flexibility in the spark app. As part of a college athletics department, this sort of functionality would let our graphic designers to supply all staff with branded logos, fonts, styles, and colors that could be tied into the automated layouts of spark. I’m sure this extends to almost all brands, especially in regards to fonts and brands with multiple colors, graphics, and styles.
Reading Chloe McConnell's question "what is your workflow" below : clearly, i do create a "theme color" somewhere in Adobde (whether color.adobe.com or Illustrator). I save it into my Library (cloud-synced of course) then i need it to shape a Brand in Spark, or directly to edit a Post.
Should be a no-brainer, definitely. Here i have to copy-paste the Hex Code of each color i want to use, add it manually into "manage Brand"
I understand Spark is stil in dev, but for such basic feature : please. plan. dev.
Are they still thinking about this or what?
I'm chatting right now with Adobe and I don't think they know what I am talking about. It's been an hour and still insisting I need to make sure I'm logged into the same account. lol
Same here! I work at a University in a large division with 19 departments and am looking for user-friendly asset management solutions. I was hoping that Spark would allow me to share assets across each department and am very surprised Spark access doesn't come with Adobe CC library access.
I'm also looking for a sensible way to share media and assets (brand elements and photos) across multiple departments if anyone has tracked down a seamless and intuitive way to do that!
Only 46 votes (including mine) and this was posted a year ago.
I am not only shocked this was into a feature day-one, but that there are so few votes for a no brainer feature. I guess it speaks to how small the Adobe Spark community is interested in change. That or the community is microscopic.
At this rate, I don't see Adobe making a change very quickly. Just look at how long it took to make some obvious fixes for the rest of the suite.
That said, does anyone have an efficient way to get assets out of libraries and into Spark? We've been building our marketing library with all kinds of assets, using services like Canva. We finally migrated to Spark hoping that it would ease our workflow. I guess it's the same.

Seriously?! This isn't a feature? I'm creating assets in Illustrator and want to bring them across for my first foray into the world of Spark and I'm already groaning at the incompetence of it all.
The knee bone definitely isn't connected to the thigh bone when it comes to Adobe development!
I though this would have been a feature to begin with! Surprised it isn’t.
I would love to have my previous color palettes save in a cc library automatically show up!
As an art printmaking company working as a team is vital. Traditionally we have used illustrator, photoshop as the backbone of our daily creative applications. Times have changed, our clients now need, or request that we supply, marking media as well, this requires all members of the team to take photos of to be used with premier, and lightroom, and with the advent of spark supply social media ready content, but... no link to CC libraries makes this task 10 times more difficult we need to gather the content in a central location per project and allow any member of the creative team, to create the post. The advantage of spark, a great looking post with minimum design input which would take an enormous amount of time. In short CC library access is the most important feature that would benefit Spark.
I would really like to see this feature added as well. I'm actually surprised it's not already there. If Library assets are designed to be available across all applications, then make them available across all applications.
Please add a feature where you can drag and drop Adobe Stock assets into Adobe Spark.

Allow your Creative Cloud library assets be able to sync with Spark to allow a simple transition from creating the asset to using it in a post.

This was a shocker, only because I'm spoiled with the CC libraries available at my finger tips. (like reaching for your coffee and its not there). :)
Thanks for that great insight, Mark! I'll reach out to you in the coming weeks to set up a time to chat!

Hi Chloe, it is a pretty interesting problem that our marketing and social media teams have been trying to solve. We have 24 teams, some of which have dedicated marketing and social media staff, while others that are supported only part time but have coaches or team staff (not design or social media experts) posting to social media. We are looking into ways of how to support them with the limited staff we have and one thing we have been implementing into our marketing workflow more and more is use of Creative Cloud Libraries in order to keep digital resources consistent and up to date across content being developed by marketing and communications staff. We have been looking for a tool like Spark that is simple to use while generating quality content for all of our teams, but we want a way to import elements of our brand such as custom fonts, logos, colors, and other styles (some of which we can already do with Spark). Being able to not only share a library but update that library with additional resources or edited resources would enable us to keep things consistent and quality high. Custom fonts which you mentioned in another post will be a great first step, but a living Library would be the perfect solution. Thanks for listening and please feel free to reach out!
Thanks so much for this suggestion! We are investigating shared libraries in Spark. What is your current workflow to ensure brand consistency for your athletics dept?
