Allow multiple people to share a link to the same published URL (multiple owners of a Prototype or Design Spec)
Collaborative work: Updating 'share link' of an .xd file not possible on another machine
System: macOS Sierra 10.12.6
XD-Version: 0.8.22.17 Beta
We are working with different people on the same .xd file. Updating the prototype link is only possible on the machine with wich the .xd file was created. The other people can only create new links.
- Create an .xd file
- Publish prototype
- Save the .xd file
- Open the same .xd file on another machine
- Updating the published prototype link not possible (only creation of new link)
I’m marking this as feature in the backlog, as this is something we intend to do in the future.

This is a blocker for any design team at scale. Its been 6 months since feature was requested. @Jacob Goldstein should we be expecting a fix ?
When i share same credentials for adobe ID for all the users which in this case max 2 machines. And what if i have more than 2 designers in my team?
Has this feature being completed? This is frustrating

Yes pleeeeease more owners for a project! It's insane that another designer always has to update the proto and design specs within the same company.
This was designed wrong. We are a team of several designers who could all be working on the same file. Mass chaos has ensued because we can't provide our business partners with a single link. This is causing frustration, confusion and lost time because we keep having to share new links. Long term storage is a mess because they can't link to the prototype since it's constantly changing. PLEASE, if you must keep this sort of functionality, allow the original publisher to allow subsequent publishers to either use the same link or require them to create a new link. Don't choose for us.
Multiple owners. definitely!
It will be great if we could work simultaneously on the same file, something that is similar to Git for developers.

Multiple owners would be ideal for us!

We definitely need to be able to allow multiple people to update an already published XD link (and keep current comments). Multiple owners - yes please!!

Muti-owners for a prototype sounds perfect!
The ability for multiple people in the team to be able to update the xd file and publish to one common link is a necessity for distributed teams. A multiple ownership approach can work but then there would be a need for version management. People working on the same file at the same time will create messy updates.

You have my vote for this feature.
The way our team works, no "single" person owns a file. One person will start the file, but there are changes being made by multiple people and we need the ability to update the prototype link without having to force the person who created the doc to rePublish.
The inability to all use the same link is a huge issue for us right now. Our team works across three countries with very different time zones and we cannot rely on one person to always be available to update the link when needed. Our poor dev team now has three different design spec links in their documentation because of our need for different designers to publish updates.
Let users edit links names!
Right now I'm working with a colleague on a project. She sent a link to the project to the client. Now I want to make some changes without changing the link, as this link already appears in other docs and was sent to different recipients.
If I could edit the link name I would have been able to update the link without sending it again to all of the end users and docs.

Please fix this.
Allowing multiple people to update a link, would definitely be helpful. We have a team of designers, and updating links is badly bottlenecked on one person.
Is there any update on this? I see the comment and admin response were over a year ago.
Yes that's exactly what we need Jacob! I work in a team of designers and it would be ideal if we all were owners of one prototype. We had issues before when the owner of a prototype leaves the company or goes on holidays for a long period of time. Thanks.

Being able to share/edit is ESSENTIAL. Not allowing it is basically Adobe asking for users of this AMAZING XD Software to basically switch back to Sketch.
AND PLEASE - ADD RULERS!
