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)
We announced CC Spaces in XD today at Adobe MAX! In a space, all members will be able to publish a link. More details to come!

its been a year and this is still not implemented C'mon ADOBE!

As a work-around, I create a duplicate file so I can share it on my own without having to ask my colleague to create links or refresh links. This is a miss and should definitely be fixed.

This issue must be solved asap

Please do it
this issue must be solved asap
Really surprised this isn't possible yet. So many of us work in teams and collaborate on files, This is an absolute neccesity.

Can you add the ability to have multiple owners on a shared document so that one user isn't the only one who can update share links.
The lone wolf designer is a myth. We work on teams for agencies and enterprises. Files I create don't belong to me, but to a company or collective. It seems silly to be collaborators on a file, where all can contribute, but only the person who first made the file is able to "own it" or share from it? It's nonsense. How is this item in a backlog? Question marks everywhere.

Legitimate would love this feature to not be backlogged and start getting made.
Tonny Pettersson commented
Please... we are still waiting on this feature!!

Why is Adobe sitting on this 2 year old feature request? 170+ comments all say the same thing - it is core to any team functionality for other file users to publish a file. I commented in June 2020 and continue to scramble for a hack. If you are an editor on an XD file, you should be able to publish the file. If you own the file, you should be able to transfer ownership to someone else.
The only hack is a security dumpster fire - everyone on the team change their Adobe ID Password to one password. In emergency, you log on as the user, publish, and log off. Somewhere a IT Security expert weeps in a corner....
Major issue w/XD and my team. This should be highest priority.
Collaboration can't really exist without this, this functionality already exists with Sketch/Invision and Figma. Many use cases as shown in the comments below and causes lots of different links with different designers picking up work which makes it incredibly difficult to manage feedback on.
We are working with several people on the same adobe license but we would like the link to remain the same when all the designers make changes on the mock-up.

This feature would save a lot of headaches. It saves one person from getting many "can you update the links?" messages.
Rebecca Ferguson commented
This causes a lot of pain when handing over projects to other designers, or even just when the 'owner' goes on leave (holiday/sick etc)
Layne Smith commented
Add me to the list. I collaborate with people on the other side of the globe. They have to wait for me to clock in every morning and re-update the link. They are having to export images, or create another file that is shareable, to get work in front of dev teams. This leads to multiple files/links floating around and general confusion.

It's kind of mind blowing that this doesn't have more votes. This is one of the biggest caveats to working with XD for our team right now. Co-editing has been great and being able to collaborate in the same document is a huge boon. The problem occurs when the document owner isn't around to push an update. What happens if they go on vacation, are sick, or leave the company? The owner should be able to assign co-editors with various permissions to create or update links. Maybe the owner gets an email notification when a link is updated by someone else. This feels even more important now that there can be multiple flows in the same document.
Nate Hamilton commented
My team isn't even able to create links if they aren't the owner of the file. This is a major issue for our team process as it's unrealistic for the file creator to give everyone a link. ***High priority for us
This is a huge blocker that makes the ability for multiple people to work on the same file basically useless. If multiple designers cannot update links for clients and developers, then multiple designers can't really work on the same files.
Claire Desanti commented
Coediting is almost pointless without this feature. Please tell us this is going to be rolled out soon!
I also upvoted the Transfer of Ownership request as it should also be part of a better Coediting set of features. https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/38308750-change-owner-of-cloud-document
