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)
Please Adobe! This is the most basic requirement to enable collaboration across a design team. Otherwise cloud docs become a hinderance rather than a helping feature.
This is such an obvious flaw it's inconceivable that someone thought it was a good idea to constrain sharing to just the file owner. Is it possible that you don't use your own product?

Adding my vote for this. I run an enterprise design team and like many others have stated, we often have multiple designers collaborating on a single XD file. The person who starts a project isn't always the same person who finishes the project. Additionally, the ability for multiple designers to iterate on each other's work over time is absolutely crucial to our workflow. What's the point of having great features like co-editing and cloud libraries if in the end, only one person on the team can publish share links? Semi-related, we need a shared folder structure for cloud documents. Each person having their own sandboxed folder structure that's only visible to them is ridiculous.
I'm in total agreement. This is killing productivity. I'm also wondering if anyone at Adobe even reads these comments. Show us a sign. Any sign will do!

I would like to add my voice to this. Please prioritize.
This is getting ridiculous... Bet there is an adobe tech architect that regrets a choice taken back pre 2017...

Can't co-sign this enough. This is an absolute must-have for working in a collaborative file!

Come on guys

If my colleagues were computers - always online, always available to push the link - then I wouldn't care about this feature.
But they are not. They work part time, take holidays are in meetings etc. all while we need to update the link from the file they are the "owner" of, and I don't want to be creating a "new link" from a "new document" as the clients who have the link are too likely to get confused and look at the wrong link.

Currently only the board owner can update the prototype link, which is very frustrating for design teams as it limits the collaboration.
I would like to have the option to give access to others to update the link as well. It can optional too so you can give the access only if you want to...
Adobe XD is going to lose every share of market if it doesn't implement a multiple owner system!! every big agency using XD is strugling with this problem!! why don't you do anything? it doesn't seem that complicated to ad a co-owner that can share to!!!!

I'm coming back here every day until this is implemented.
This is by far the most frustrating issue in our team's current workflow.

It's been over four years. This needs to happen now. InvisionAPP is looking better and better.

This feature is absolutely essential for those of us working in a team.

I work in a design team where there is a lot of sharing of files. This works fine in XD until it is time to share a link for review. Only the person who created the file can update links. We need functionality that allows us to share ownership of files within teams.
Hi XD team where are we with this?
I need to enable my team and myself (as the manager) to allow access to push and update. At the moment it is only the designer that created the file that can update the link. Please this is a highly needed feature.
Was just checking out XD to see if it could replace our current app's Sketch and Invision. The lack of this feature and having a central place to manage client feedback is critical for us so don't think XD will work for us just yet.
This is a must for every business that has a design department of more than one person. Sometimes the person who creates a file or link is not the one to fix or update it. (Such is corporate workflows). If the file has multiple owners I don't see why the other owners can't update that same link, it's ridiculous. Having to change save versions of the file and change the links everywhere is not optimal. I urge you to fix it as soon as possible.
2017: Feature under review
2019: Feature in backlog
2021: Feature under review
2021 (same day): Feature in backlog
What’s the point of asking users for feedback if you never plan on implementing it. Telling us for 4 years now, that you’ll “get to it in the future.” Yeah? When? Cause it’s been 4 years. Maybe by 2030 you’ll have this. By then every team that tried to use XD will be on other software. Like mine, cause were switching to different software providers. Also I teach at 5 Universities as an adjunct and I used to teach them XD. No more, the future UX/UI designers of the world that take my class will be taught other, better softwares.
Additionally, every design event that I go to that Adobe sponsors where you do a software demo, I’ll be the guy making sure to tell everyone there all the shortcomings of this software and why it doesn’t work for teams. And why they should use something else.
“Feature-in-backlog,” translation for those of you who are new. This is where feature request go to die.
please make this feature now. Do not write this subject first in the lists :)
