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.

Please allow multiple permissions levels:
- Owner (Write, Read, Publish), Editors (Write, Read), Viewers (Read)

This feature is very important... XD is an amazing prototyping app, but the embeded hand-off tool still need some improvements. I think this feature needs to be implemented as soon as possible, specially because it lives in your backlog since too long time.
Matt Geller commented
This is crazy this still hasn't been developed. We're going to need to switch to Figma :(
Thomas Hallgren commented
Absolutely NECESSARY. Major workflow blocker.
Please update us about the time for implementation.
We need multiple owners or permissions for users. This way the owner could allow to create links or updated them to selected few.

It might be similar to https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/31015357-allow-multiple-people-to-share-a-link-to-the-same but instead of opening xd file on another machine I am working with cloud documents

Currently it is possible to share a design document and allow collaborators to further share the doc. I would like to have similar option for collaborators to update the design review link. When a collaborator from the design team is working on the design they have to wait until I update the link. Since we all working on the same document I would like them to be able to update the design review link as well.
Hi Adobe, this feature is so important for users using the collab mode. Please mark this as a high priority and hopefully gets released in the next update! Thanks!
Put the “Export Specs” feature available for designers who are working in co-editing mode and didn’t create the file
Hi Adobe team, we are in the dire need to have this feature released asap. My laptop crashed recently and it became really difficult for my team members to publish the designs from the file which I owned. Our client deliverables were impacted and it didn't turn out that well for us. Kindly push this feature out on priority. This will be a great help to the design community and design consultancies who rely on Adobe products for their deliverables. Thank you.
Hi Adobe, this feature is extremely important, especially now as many more teams are working from home due to quarantine. Please expedite!
Hi Adobe team
please, we really need this please. I had redesigned a whole website, shared all the links with the devs and now that I am going on maternity leave and handing over all the job I am realising this is not really possible as would need to change all the links ... devs won't be happy about it :/
Thank you for your help!

Hi. It looks like this feature request was made 2.5 yr. ago. Is there an estimate as to when it will be implemented?
I see that in Nov it was marked as "backlog," does that mean it is not being considered for any upcoming releases or that it's not being actively worked on?
We are working as a team and have files in our local machine and generate prototype links for dev team.. When the owner of the file is absent. we make the updates in the same XD file but from a different system. Is there a way we can use the same published link to share with the developers? So that the developer can keep using the same link.
Hi everyone, just this week, the owner of the file was not available and we needed to quickly create a link of the prototype to add to a final deck for the client. I had to open a new version of the file so I could have access and create a temporary Share link. Ideally, for us at least, if we are coediting and working off that file, we all should have access to creating a Share link. Since there is a backlog of all links created, it seems like it wouldn't be an issue if someone else besides the owner create a new link. It sure felt like a limitation this week to have only the owner the access to create new Share links. Thank you much for all your attention! <3
Elaine / Jacob Goldstein,
- this feature;
- component links is not extended when used in different screens. It's usefull for toolbars, menus, etc; I use to copy from screen to another one in "prototype" mode, but if the link changes, I have to change in all of screens!!! That's nonsense! Components should be usefull to work less, not more!
- iframe with URL navigation, to show to clients when using webviews;
- bigger "destionation link pages" (wtf is too small to search there - and with search option)

I think this has enough backing to get the feature out of backlog and into development. I think multiple people should be able to manage links and push to shared links across users.
Ideas: Create User Groups "Team":
- Owner/Admin ability to add Adobe Users to "Team", grant them access / permission to shared links and other possible member management
- Team member with permission allowed to update/revise links across "Team"
- Owner/Admin ability to Manage users in that "Team"
- Ability to comment as "Team" or individual user on prototypes
Jodi Bennett commented
Agreeing with everyone here! I've just had to go away on holiday and while my team were able to update the file, they couldn't update the link to share the updates with the stakeholders because I'm the owner! Very frustrating! We can't keep changing the link because the Dev team will get confused and be working from the wrong link (already happened once).

Adding my voice to this request please! It really does defeat the purpose of collaboration! Thank you!

updating of shared link is available only for an owner. However some working situations require other designers to do the update themselves. Would be useful having an ability for owner to grant other participants permission to do so.
