Touch UI Feature Status

You are reading the AEM 6.3 version of Touch UI Feature Status.
This documentation is also available for the following versions:  AEM 6.2 

Starting with version 6.0, AEM introduced a new user interface referred to as the "touch-enabled UI" (also known simply as "touch UI") that is aligned to the Adobe Marketing Cloud and to the overall Adobe user interface guidelines. With near feature partity reached, this has become the standard UI in AEM with the legacy, desktop-oritented interface referred to as "classic UI."

While most capabilities are present in the touch-enabled UI, there are features that are not yet complete and will be added in future releases.

The following list shows the current status of the capabilities as implemented in AEM 6.3.

For recommendations for customers that upgrade to AEM 6.3, please see User Interface Recommendations for Customers for details.

Note

Please note that this page only covers feature parity with classic UI.

Capabilities added and unique to the touch-enabled UI that are not present in the classic UI are not listed.

Note

This list strives to be complete, but should not be considered exhaustive.

  • Missing: The feature is not present in the touch-enabled UI, the classic UI has to be used to do this action.
