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.

This might be helpful.
Save your XD file to your local computer, and you can open it up on a different account as a file owner.

This is a major issue for our team. As we move through the phases from requirements, to wireframing, to design, to prototyping, the person responsible for the file shifts. We need to be able to empower the responsible party to update share links. It's a huge pain to have the original creator have to update the share link every time.
add me to this - it's a big issues in teams that have multiple designers
This feature has to be there very soon, as in my org I am the only designer but owner of xd files is my boss, so everytime I cannot ask him to create links for me.
We need this feature desperately!
It would be great to designate multiple owners of an XD file. This would allow multiple contributors to make updates and not require the original owner to update the shared link to update links that have already been distributed.

This would be REALLY useful for my design team as well.
We are a big fan of the coediting feature and have our projects shared within the team. If one of my team members who is the owner of the document and is unavailable, it's impossible for us to create and share the link after making any updates to the document.
Creating a new document (as suggested in the attached screenshot) makes the previously created and shared links with the development team outdated.

This is CRITICAL for any design team. Also need ability for co-owner (or shared user) of document to publish. If a team member is out of office we have zero ability to publish the prototype.

Just to add to this:
- Add ability for permission levels (ie.. Owner, Editors, Viewers) etc.. based on use-case.
Hi Adobe team
please, we really need this please. I had redesigned a whole website, shared all the links with the devs and now that I am going on maternity leave and handing over all the job I am realising this is not really possible as would need to change all the links ... devs won't be happy about it :/
Thank you for your help!
Urgent Feature! please address this as soon as possible. We share our prototypes with so many clients and it is a big issue if we need to update links.
Very useful feature, I look forward to see it implemented.
yes!!! please this is an imperative feature. I started a document - shared it with my other designer - then I've rolled off the project and I'm still having to approve other people's access even though I'm not on the team any more.
it is helpful and essential for collaboration, change of ownership is a must have.
This would be really help. Kindly provide the same at the earliest.
Here's the same request that has been added to Adobe XD's backlog: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/31015357-allow-multiple-people-to-share-a-link-to-the-same
So frustrating. I designed a document but my colleague is now the one updating it. I have to stop what I am doing every 5 minutes to update the link for him!
Agree this is a problem for us currently too. I've been using a single adobe account for years as I was the only designer at our company. Now our team has expanded we have updated to a team account and can't transfer files without breaking embedded components in other files. It would also be useful to be able to assign multiple owners, for when one team member is away etc.
Agree with this, need a better way to manage ownership on cloud docs.
