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!
This is a must have!!!

Currently only the owner of a cloud document is the only one who can publish a prototypes. We work in a team and have multiple flows and artboards going on for various projects, however only the owner can publish the updates so slows down our workflow.
Please have allows for team access levels on cloud documents that gives approved team members permission to also publish cloud prototypes.

this is basically a dealbreaker. if we make comments on an existing link, and the owner is on holiday for example, it’s not possible to update the existing link and keep the comments in this link, since its xd makes you create a new document.

Currently only the document owner is able to share or publish the work/libraries.
Thats a major single point of failure in a large multiple linked files project. Best would work if certain members of a file can be allowed to share or publish.
If the owner is out of office or leaves the company, no one can update the entire set of designs for developers or client. Is there currently any workaround?
Please is so annoying for everyone! I can't share link with the rest of the team unless I ask my boss to refresh the link!

At least once a day, I'll have to ask my coworker "hey, can you update that doc for me? I made a small tweak." It inhibits fast turnaround times. If coediting is enabled, co-ownership should also be enabled, or at least an option.
It is absolutely ridiculous that this feature STILL isn't available. This has been requested since 2017.
It slows down team work that the creator always has to be available to update links. Make this happen ASAP please.
Rachel A commented
allow everyone that has access to the xd file, to create shareable links. or giving ownership rights to more then the doc creator, so shareable links can be created by those.

Need this ASAP! Didn't realize this would be a hinderance when introducing collaborating files to coworkers.
Need this feature, please Adobe make it happen
Smit Shah commented
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. :(
