Can I transfer ownership of the XD Cloud Document?

Good morning,

Over the last 6 months I have been working with my collegue on a prototype using an Abobe XD cloud document.

 

I am leaving the project that I am currently on and need to make sure my collegue is not interrupted in any way.  I shared the prototype link initially and since then he has not been able to share the prototype - he ends up having to ask me.  (I think I have somehow become the "Owner").

 

What is the proper procedure in this case?  I have searched and cannot seem to find anything.

 

Thank you.

Hi Doug,

currently, it is not possible to transfer ownership of the document. On this page, there is a case very similar to yours: Change owner of cloud document

Hi Doug,

currently, only the owner of the file can create and update the link of the prototype.

!! 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, prioject 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 multuple locations and some unknown... I cannot access these and change out the link to a new one.
