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!
This option would be quite appreciate. I've lost so many hours transferring an account of another lead designer.
By the time this feature gets added, is there any other way to transfer file ownerships? I too am leaving my company and linked shared from file I created need to remain same without me being there - can someone help?
My design lead is leaving and now I can't update links for the files he created. Now having to resave these files and now the links are changing? Transferring ownership needs to be created ASAP
It's a very necessary feature for teams to be able to transfer ownership (or have multiple owners) of XD files, libraries and design system

This is similar to the issue of updating links. I really hope this gets fixed before any other features come out. Otherwise, I have to persuade my team to switch to Figma like at my last company.
What a massive oversight for something so critical to design handoff. I have no way to transfer ownership to my team for design files? Am I being trolled?
This software is such a joke. One of the main reasons I got a new job is because my current company refuses to switch to Figma, and all XD provides me with is a new headache every time I open it. **** Adobe.

I've been facing this same issue right now. I want other employee to be the owner of the projects and I'm trying to come up with a solution like: having he downloading the cloud files locally and then saving it again. Just to see if anything changes. But we do NEED A SOLUTION for this ASAP.

We desperately need this for enterprise organizations where a design system is being built and there are FTE and Contractors working for the greater good of humanity.

This is a critical feature, please do something

Even when I log in as the departed employee, I don't seem to be able to transfer the ownership of the XD file

This has been a major problem in our project, the design lead left the company, but the file is actually a source of the design system library, and all components from all the files come from this exact design system, but since she left, a new design lead joined, and he is not able to access the file. This is something that should of the biggest priority because people leaving companies is common, and the organization that pays for the cloud license shouldn't be the one be affected.
Also, the ability of only owner sharing the links is another problem because if the owner of the file is on vacation we cannot create any links

Hi guys, right now we have a several issue because of that, when do we receive a solution?
@Christoper, we're having the same issue. You gave me the idea of having everyone on my team vote for this and https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/31015357-allow-multiple-people-to-share-a-link-to-the-same.
My team is smaller than yours, but your team's 40 votes would definitely help to get this some more notice.
This is now officially a problem for me and my organization. We have a team member moving on who was the "owner" of important designs which will be detrimental to loose. We need to transfer the ownership but the prospect of republishing multiple years worth of work under a new user ID is infuriating... the solution: only people who cannot stop working are allowed to own and publish files? <eye roll> Please fix team ownership of cloud files. Creative Cloud for teams should allow any assets stored in the cloud to stay with the team account not individual user account and should be manageable across team members.
This is a core feature of any tool with collaboration.
This story should also get extra attention as most votes here likely represent a team of multiple licenses... if each vote here only represented 10-12 person team, you're looking at a ~$10k loss of revenue per vote. Our organization has nearly 40. AND if you look at the other dozen related stories about collaboration and sharing files - it's likely one of the most highly upvoted requests. This desperately needs attention, a roadmap and plan.

Please fix this feature ASAP!!!
Please figure this out. It's been a shock to realize that every link will break on Slack, Jira, wiki, everywhere once we re-save files.
Please prioritize this feature, our team is growing and this is and essential update for us to continue using the XD product.

Oh wow, we haven't done this yet? Guess it is actually time to move to Figma like my team has been begging me. This is a HUGE headache.
Not even the need to change the owner but allow multiple people to publish an update to the existing link. I work in a massive corporation and we depend on the comments in links for project annotations and all of that is lost if you don't use the same link.
Our workaround is as follows:
File > Save As (give it a new name).
You're now the new owner.
Invite others to edit.
Obviously not ideal, but it gets the job done. I can see this being a hassle if you have a big team to re-invite though.
