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)
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.
We can't use XD in our big company if this feature is not implemented. And I've heard the same from other companies. People are turning to Figma instead! So please hurry up!

My guys. Collaboration tools don't work if you can't get the output of your work in front of user or customer eyeballs. Can you please just give us his feature already.
In a post-covid world, remote collaboration isn't going away, and while Figma's design tools still aren't as good as yours, they are the ONLY feasible tool available for collaboration in remote teams.
Does XD want to go the way of Sketch and the dinosaur? This should be a simple permissions update - I doubt it would take you long to roll out since everything is already built.
I agree - this is a major flaw with XD's collaboration features. We constantly have the problem of not being able to send the client updates because the files original creator is out of office.
PLEASE SEE THAT THIS IS CHANGED PRONTO.
Just how you can invite co-editors to your file, you should be able to give someone permission to update share link. In a collaborative environment that is a must. You can’t just have one person do that. I’ve started implementing our design system in XD and now I’m considering Figma instead because of the lack of shared permissions.
I completely agree. Our primary designer is in a different country and I don't want to wait until he has updated the link for us to share updates with our client.

This is really important. The need to ask colleagues to update links costs a lot of time and sometimes causes unnecessary delays when people cannot be reached.

Please Adobe make it happen 🙏
