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)

YES PLEASE! YES PLEASE! YES PLEASE! YES PLEASE!

Currently only the document owner is able to share or publish the work/libraries.
Thats a major single point of failure in a large multiple linked files project. Best would work if certain members of a file can be allowed to share or publish.
If the owner is out of office or leaves the company, no one can update the entire set of designs for developers or client. Is there currently any workaround?
Please is so annoying for everyone! I can't share link with the rest of the team unless I ask my boss to refresh the link!

At least once a day, I'll have to ask my coworker "hey, can you update that doc for me? I made a small tweak." It inhibits fast turnaround times. If coediting is enabled, co-ownership should also be enabled, or at least an option.
It is absolutely ridiculous that this feature STILL isn't available. This has been requested since 2017.
It slows down team work that the creator always has to be available to update links. Make this happen ASAP please.

allow everyone that has access to the xd file, to create shareable links. or giving ownership rights to more then the doc creator, so shareable links can be created by those.

Need this ASAP! Didn't realize this would be a hinderance when introducing collaborating files to coworkers.
Need this feature, please Adobe make it happen

Need this feature - we have constant movement of humans around - due to medical reasons and family emergencies - very difficult - Adobe can look into this - given the covid situation
This is so crucial! Would have a big impact on my team - and everyone that uses XD. Permission level collaborator & co-owner
I'm thinking of turning to figma because it's impossible to work as a team with adobe XD. Your app is great but collaboration is a must have nowaday.
So, shall we assume that 4 years and over a thousand upvotes isn't enough to make this any sort of priority?
Can we get this out of backlog and into production?
You've done so much work towards collaboration and then shut the door on it before ever making it truly viable. Collaboration is essentially impossible without the ability for anyone working on a document to also be able to publish it.

This needs to be an important feature that isn't "in the backlog".. this is pushing my team away from Adobe and into Figma instead!!
Need this feature ASAP for working with a team. Otherwise XD is practically unusable for us. :(
Being able to have multiple owners of a library or document so that multiple people can push the library. This will be awesome for companies... if someone is gone on vacation, gets fired, is unable to access the internet someone else can always update the file.
This one is killing me. Might be a mild exaggeration and a bit of hyperbole but at the same time, I am quite literally physically dying due to this problem.
You have to develop this feature because it's a big problem for a team. I'm thinking of using another tool like figma if we can't do this
We work in teams sharing and creating one XD file and sharing the link to the developer. Editors other than the administrator can update the shared link (it would be better if there was a password restriction or something). or We'd like to transfer the administrator to someone else without changing the shared link.
it's a must have feature...we really need that.
