At Figma, we encourage collaboration throughout the entire design and development process.
Invite collaborators to your Files when you:
- Start to brainstorm a new Project with your Team
- Need input from your copywriter or Product Marketing team
- Need to share work in progress with a manager or client
- Want feedback on a prototype during user testing
- Handing off final designs to a developer
You can share Files in your Drafts, or Files from a Project in a Team.
You can choose what Permissions collaborators have on your Files.
In this article, we'll explore the File Sharing modal. Check out the articles below to learn more:

File Sharing Modal
You control who has access to a File via the File Sharing Modal.
You can access this in a few places:
In the Editor
- Click the Share button in the Toolbar
From the Project
- Right-click on the File Thumbnail
- Select Share from the options
From the File Sharing Modal you can:
- View which Project the File is in: Move Files between Drafts, Teams, Projects and Accounts
- Invite Collaborators to the Project
- View the Team Access - how members of your Team can interact with the File
- View the Link Sharing settings
- Define how people can find and access your Files
- Define what level of access those collaborators will have
- See who the File Owner is
- See who else has access to the File
- Update Permissions for Collaborators
- Copy a link to the File.
- Copy the Embed code.
Tip! If you have a specific Frame selected, you can also choose Link to selected frame.
- Enable or disable the "Viewers can copy and share" setting
Note: It's not possible to give someone Can View access to a File, if they are an Editor on the Team. You can only do this if you are inviting them to a Project with Advanced Project Permissions.
