Change owner of cloud document
A member of our team is leaving. The only way we can change ownership of her files is to have her download them and share them locally. This is fine and all but it breaks all the links to the document so I have to go into the various places we share the link, like JIRA, and add new links.
I would prefer that we could just change ownership of the file to another team member.
We announced CC Spaces in XD today at Adobe MAX! In a space, all members will share ownership of the document, which means people leaving an organization won’t impact your workflow. More details to come!

!! Please prioritize transferring or sharing permissions to update already generated links to view files in a browser. !!
Not having this capability is totally impractical and a real pain point for designers, developers, project teams, project managers, and executives. EVERYONE!!!! Please fix this asap.
No transfer/reassignment of file admin/ownership permissions poses problems when a person leaves the company. I am working for a large corporation where the previous creator and owner of a mission critical XD file left the company. I took over the UX design aspects of the project but cannot update any of the previous employees XD file links that have been shared throughout the entire company downstream/upstream and with contracted dev services. I cannot just create a copy of a file and generate a new link when the old original link exists in multiple locations and some unknown... I cannot access these and change out the link to a new one.
You can change it by yourself. You just need to click on share button and from here you can choose the share option according to your desire. Once, I also did the same thing for my website's documents https://bubbahead.com/.

It has been almost a year since Creative Cloud Spaces was announced... Still very much in need of a feature like this one.

Just needed to say again how deeply unprofessional it is to mention that at Adobe Max something is coming then do nothing at all to keep your users updated.
David Hampshire commented
This just really isn't good enough, do Adobe listen to users?
This is surely a really key issue for designers in teams, freelancers etc.
I have bene pushed here from another message I posted, and any post I see says something about the team 'are working on it' They really don't seem to be.
CC Spaces... More details to come! - Then When?! You're a PM at Adobe obviously you need to now keep us updated? It's hard to not look at Figma, Sketch or any of the others growing tools.
Please update and pass on more information, and some honestly wouldn't go amiss, if its 100% happening but going to be 6 months OK, great!
Really need some support from Adobe to understand the issue

A very critical feature! Is there any timeline on when would this be functional?
This is a very important feature for teams to collaborate properly, please give an update soon.

Almost a year later and no CC Spaces...

If the owner of the file is on long term annual leave and an updated link is required to be shared - having to save the file to your local machine seems pretty old school when we're being encouraged to work collaboratively on the cloud.
Users with editable access should also be able to generate or update links - as required.
Some feedback on this would be nice.

What is the status of this? Our team has been without Design System updates for a long time (I was previously the owner of our DS file, but changed accounts and now none of us can publish any updates.) Having crappy workarounds won't help when 20+ ongoing projects rely on links from that original DS file.

When will CC Spaces finally come out? It was mentioned in October that it would be released early 2022, it's May already... What's the point in adding a collaborative mode when you can't sync if you're not the owner.

Hello! When can we expect the announced feature? It's something we really need in professional work.

Hi! I'd like to voice my vote for the ability for shared XD docs to have the ability to update links, or create new ones. When is CC Spaces going to be released? This is a very important tool for collaborating and not losing comments.
Rebecca Alley commented
Has this been updated? For Enterprise accounts?
Please release this feature as soon as possible!

Hi there, one of our colleague has just resigned and she has created design system for our product with bunch of components and styles on a cloud projects. We need to change the ownership of her file so we don't have to re-link all the existed components to our projects
My organisation got a company account which means that all the XD published links are used by my old profile and I cannot transfer those to my new profile. This means that I would have to re-share all the links with devs and clients and lose comments.
I need to be able to share and transfer ownership between my profiles, even if they use the same email address.

Yes please this function.
