Adobe remote CC checkin idea

Hello,

I'm asking this on behalf of photographers (using LR & PS) who work in very remote sites such as deep in the interior of Antarctica where this is nil to no Internet: Those who winter over there have a problem, they can't get online for MANY MONTHS at a time. Even in summer the 8K baud sat phone link is $$$, slow, unreliable. Connecting to the is not an option for them. Radio calling Adobe customer service is very problematic due to timezones, cost, voice line quality, etc.

I first propose this idea to the "Lightroom Queen" who liked this idea and suggested I propose, to this forum, this long term solution for remote offline Adobe CC checkin:

Remote sites deep in Antarctica who cannot go online nor call Adobe customer service need a way to check in to Adobe CC offline.

Have LR & PS print some kind of digit string or code. The remote Antarctican radios this code to a colleague's voicemail up north. That colleague sometime the next day (or 2 or 3 days) listens to their voicemail, picks up the code, goes to an Adobe site URL, enters this code. That Adobe URL prints a reply code. This North colleague leaves the reply code on the satellite voicemail of the Antarctican. Some in the next day (or 2 or 3 days) the Antarctican receives this code reply and enters that code reply into their PS & LR. At this point the Adobe CC checkin is complete and does not need to be done until the next checkin cycle (hopefully not for a few months).

The above remote checkin would tell both the Adobe CC and the photographers PS/LR to complete an Adobe cloud checkin without their having to be online. It accommodates the timezone differences while keeping $$$ communication to a minimum. ( BTW: this would also help people on remote ships, or in other isolated locations where going online is hard or not allowed. )

Please setup such a remote checkin opinion. There are people who can't call into Adobe customer service nor go online for very extended periods of time who otherwise need to use Adobe CC enabled products.

Thanks for your consideration.
