I am the owner of our design system master file built in Adobe XD. I am leaving the company and we need to transfer ownership to one of my collaborators so they can publish updates. I have co-editing enabled but it appears only I can push the share updates. Once the company deletes my adobe account will my team be able to take ownership, manage the file and, publish updates?

Hi Louise, 

 

Thanks for reaching out. I found a similar discussion on the community which you can refer to here https://community.adobe.com/t5/adobe-xd/transfer-ownership-of-a-file-to-a-different-account/m-p/1106... 

 

Let us know if this helps or if you need any further assistance.

 

Regards

Rishabh

Thank you, It seems like based on the response this is not currently possible? The team will need to maintain the links to the original components as they are used as the basis of our design system. The share links are being used by our dev team to build out our website. I realize this is not your fault but this is a serious issue for enterprise teams. People leave companies all the time and it really must be made a feature to easily transfer ownership when this occurs. Is the only workaround that they maintain my adobe account after I leave?

Hi, Louise. I'm a designer for a large company and find myself in a similar situation. I'm leaving the company at the end of the week, but have a lot of assets that I've created in XD that I need to be able to transfer to my coworkers. What I've ended up doing is, in addition to saving the libraries to the Cloud, I also saved a local copy and uploaded it to our shared drive. This way they'll at least have something they can use as a backup if something happens with the Cloud versions. I'll let you know how this goes, but yeah, it's a little silly that this hasn't already been addressed. I mean, it's not like it's a new issue or anything.

Same. This is crazy. No wonder people are moving to Figma.

Figma has a higher price but it's worth it. I can actually list what our needs and adobe Xd can't do but Figma can:
- Thumbnail for project
- transfer ownership
- Share the whole file (not prototype) with a link
- Invite pther people to the file but not editing
To name but a few...

Hi Rishabh, 

Following up on this poster's question as well. Is this feature slated to be worked on in the near future? It's a very necessary feature for teams to be able to transfer ownership (or have multiple owners) of XD files, libraries and design systems. The discussion you linked to does resolve this or give an information about when users can expect this. Can you please let us know any information on the status of this request? 

Thank you.

Hi Rishabh, I'm following up on this post's request. Is this feature done already? Is it possible to transfer ownership of the projects from one account to another?

Hi Amjad@Spacewell ,

 

We're so sorry for the delay. I am afraid, as of now, we don't have the time frame by when this feature would be available. Having said that let me assure you, that I'll share your feedback with the Engineering team.
