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)
Hi this feature is seriously prohibitive to real team collaboration. Where multiple people can edit a live/working file they should also be able to share the file with developers and otherwise share as needed.
If the owner of the file is on vacation, or out of office it renders the entire rest of the team unable to share and update share links.
It's been YEARS of waiting at this point! When can the community expect this feature?
Strictly we need this feature. Please please please...
This is a must-have for best collaboration
This is a huge blocker for team collaboration. Please allow multiple document owners for .XD files.

Sometimes we may need to update a link more than once and it's really an issue if a member needs to ping the user multiple times to update the link. And some of the comments were right - if the user is on leave / on vacation, there's no way the team can continue with the link.

Good lord please fix this. How many freaking emails from collaborators ‘can you update the link please’ does a person have to get?!

This feature is very important in a collaborative tool. How can I finalize the prototype and send to my customer if I need request to another user, in vacation for example, to update link?
Big gap for us. Cannot collaborate on a file, if each designer cannot share links.
Please implement this feature as soon as possible!
We are a big agency and it is no solution to copy documents in order to be able to share links. This undermines the whole idea of cloud documents and collaborative work.
We're a team of more than 50 designers. We will change soon tool because of this missing feature.

Please, please, please.... implement this sooner rather than later. In order for XD to truly be a collaborative design tool for teams, it's a must that anyone invited to coedit can be given permission to update the link. The lack of this feature costs precious time and is very inconvenient. Thank you!
This functionality is a huge blocker for us as we scale our design team. Last I checked XD was supposed to be for teams, not teams of one!!

Definitely up for something like what Axure does w/ their cloud docs. They allow you to invite other collaborators and set them up as either Editors or Admins. Admins have all the same powers as Owners do, pretty much.
Hello, we're transitioning to XD and I just found out that collaborators can't publish links. It's rather inefficient. I was introducing to our company adobe XD since it's competing already against other tools. but missing this feature is really a hassle when we're trying to streamline the workflow and efficiency. It would be great to have this feature ASAP. it's been 3 years since the suggestion. :(
I don't understand how this is not a feature yet. I'm seriously considering changing tools as this is ridiculous. These aren't truly shared files.

It would be great to have the possiblity to update a shared XD-File. At the moment it is not possible.

How is this not a thing yet? I cannot explain how frustrating it is to take over a new project in a large enterprise and not be able to update existing links in a file that the previous designer started on their machine.

This feature is badly needed for larger teams, especially with co-edit being so important now.
