Is Touch UI in AEM 6.0 ready for managing Sites?

Avatar

Level 1

Clearly Adobe is investing heavily in the Touch UI and demos I saw at the Summit last week were all done on the Touch UI. But is the Touch UI in 6.0, specifically the Sites, robust enough to start using it fully (no switching to classic UI)? Or are there still some missing capabilities that would require users to hop to Classic UI from time to time? Any experience you can share will help. We are just standing up the AEM 6.0.
Thank you,

PS. Many other sections of the documentation also contain valuable information about using the Touch-Optimized UI for the appropriate function.

No.  One glaring piece of functionality currently missing is design mode.  You must switch to classic UI to use it.  Components that require multiple images or multiple rich text fields are also not working under touchUI.

Hi Martin,

Thank you for your question.

Touch UI was introduced with the responsive design for the authoring environment. 

You can go through the below documentation links to know the structure and concepts of the touch optimized UI:

Thanks!

Asset locking/unlocking, dialog participant step capabilities for orkflow seems to be missing in Touch UI

Hi Martin,

We are in transition to make everything available in Touch UI. hopefully we will be able to give all the functionality in next couple of releases.
