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!
Yes, this was announced in Oct of last year. This should be available by now. We're moving to Figma as well because of this long-time oversight of something so basic. Version control is horrible in my agency because you can't share links from a board you didn't create.
Ideally, we have a company folder in which I can set users to have rights across ALL files in the folder.
This is a MASSIVE issue for us. I'm trying to move the team away from Figma. but the file management in XD is far too basic.
For example, we had an issue the other day when I needed to share new edits with the client. But had to contact my staff member after hours to update the shared link because I don't have access.. ridiculous.

We really need this feature. When is this going to be released?
Chris Henham commented
If multiple users can edit and update a design - multiple users need to be able to inform clients/stakeholders of change
Any update on CC Spaces release?????? We need this feature ASAP
+1! We absolutely need this feature!

Botond Bogyay commented
It's a really basic feature to use XD collaboratively, please make CC Spaces available, NOW!

This is the reason I am switching my team into Figma.

Hi, any update on this? It becomes tough when a team member who has created Prototype Links is leaving the team...
Damien Roux commented
+1 this is required for proper collaboration! thanks :)
Peter Bürk commented
we absolutely need this feature. updating the links may not always depend on one person.
Austin B commented
The lack of this feature becomes a significant hindrance to our team which shares master files and will have multiple collaborators. Users who have been given the ability to edit an XD file should be able to create and update links. Please make this change ASAP! Thank you!
Christel Junco commented
We badly need this important feature; this affects our team productivity to wait for the other person to update the link every time we have some quick changes.
Phil Holm commented
I'm amazed that Adobe thought initially that collaborative work was not essential when they designed the XD application. This is the biggest failure since Flash.
Give us a date, when will Adobe Spaces be available?? Please we're begging you!

This issue needs to be solved URGENTLY!! It’s very disappointing to have a collaborative tool that is not really collaborative. What happens if a designer is on leave? How is the teams suppose to continue working? Major fail!!
Can Adobe give us an estimation of when this feature would be available? I am already considering switching the whole team to other design/prototyping tools.

It's really a hassle working in a team and there's only one person that can update the project. Hope you can give authorities to other user as well by right clicking their names. So more than one people are authorized to publish the design. Thanks.
For the record, as with nearly every feature I have requested or voted on in this forum, you can already do this in Figma.

We need this feature! Very annoying just to have 1 person to share a link
Hi Good Evening,
I have facing some problem while updating the link.
I am collaborator not an owner of the file. So, I have to ask my colleague every time for update the link because he is owner of that file.
Can we give an option for owner to give permissions - Iike allow/don't allow permission for update the link.
