Not a good start, Adobe...

4 years ago from , UX Designer, BookingSuite @ Booking.com

Filling out the survey in order to download the new Adobe Experience Design application, I noticed a few worrying signs:

...how is it possible to be anything BUT a beginner on a program that was just released in beta?

And for a product called "Experience Design", why on earth did they not include "User Experience Designer" (or even "Product Designer") in their list of job descriptions?

    Just released as a public beta. ;)

    (I do see your point though!)

    It was open to a number of testers. One of them being myself. So in that case, I'd be experienced. This has been a closed beta for some time now and was just made public to everyone.

    I think these roles would come under "Web or Mobile Designer/Developer".

    I've had to fill out this form every time I have downloaded any of the adobe apps from the web... this was most likely not intentional.

    I think they already changed the form. I downloaded this morning the software and I putted beginner and nothing more.

    Not defending Adobe, but I had to re-download InDesign yesterday and they had the same options so this doesn't appear to be an app-specific survey. It's also a little frustrating that they can't pull that data from my user profile since I must have answered close to a hundred of these damn surveys since starting out with Adobe.

    Kinda seems like you're looking for something to nitpick, this is not an app-specific survey, and has nothing to do with the actual viability of the app itself

    Hello there,

    Thanks for your feedback, we are working to fix the issue in the survey.

    It's important to highlight that this first Public Preview is a solid foundation for new features to arrive with our monthly releases moving forward. This is just the beginning of a long and fun journey. Hope to hear more from you.

    Thanks again,

    Demian Borba | Product Manager, UX Design | @demianborba
