Before you start
Who can use this feature
Users on Figma Organization Plan
Anyone who has moved from a Professional Team to a Figma Organization
When you move from a Professional Team to an Organization there are some changes to get used to. You'll spot most of these differences in the File Browser.
Log in to the Organization
You will need to access Figma via a verified company email address. The domain must match one of the domains registered to your Organization.
Your Organization Admin will let Figma know which company domains are supported in your Figma Organization. For example: figma.com or dev.figma.com.
If you've been using Figma under a personal email, or an address not registered to the Organization, you won't be able to access the Organization. Update the email address you're using to your company email.
A few other factors determine how you can access the Organization.
SAML SSO lets you log in to many applications or websites via one set of login details.
- If your Organization has set up SAML SSO, you will be able to log in to Figma using your company name and email. Check out our Log in to an Organization article for detailed instructions.
- Organizations can also enable SSO via Google, which lets you log in to Figma using your company-managed Google account.
- If SAML SSO isn't enabled, you can login using your company email address and a unique password.
Note: If you sign into Figma using a company email that hasn't been verified, or added via SAML SSO, Figma will create a new account for you in the Organization. You'll need to join any Teams you're a part of manually.
Domain Capture controls how Figma treats accounts that match a company's domain(s).
When Domain Capture is on, Figma will add accounts registered under a company email to the Figma Organization. This applies to:
- Any existing Figma accounts at the time of migration
- Any new accounts created after the Organization is set up
When Domain Capture is off, Figma won't automatically add accounts with company emails to the company's Figma Organization.
This allows companies to create separate teams or Figma Organizations. Or, choose exactly which members they want to include in the Organization.
Learn more about Domain Capture and how it affects your Organization in our Domain Capture in a Figma Organization article.
Personal and Organization space
Within your Figma account, you will have both an Organization and a Personal Space. Both of these are linked to the one account, which is registered to your company email.
In your Personal File Browser you can:
✅ Access Teams that weren't migrated to the Organization
✅ Access Teams outside of the Organization you have joined with your company email
✅ Run plugins that haven't been whitelisted by the Organization
In your Personal File Browser you can't:
❌ Access Libraries that are shared within Teams in the Organization
❌ Access Libraries that are shared across the Organization
❌ Access Fonts that have been uploaded to the Organization
❌ Run plugins that are Private to the Organization
Organization Admins determine which Teams are part of the initial migration to a Figma Organization. Find any Teams that weren't migrated in your Personal Space.
Switch between your Personal and Organization File Browser.
- Click the Organization name in the bottom-left corner of the File Browser.
- Select Personal File Browser to open the Personal File Browser.
- Select <Organization name> to open the Organization File Browser.
It's not possible to move Files, Projects or Teams between your Personal and Organization File Browser. Make sure you are in the correct File Browser when creating new Files and Projects!
Learn more in our Navigate your Organization using the File Browser article.
Intellectual Property: Any Files you create within the Organization space are owned by the Organization. If you leave or are removed from the Organization, the Organization will keep ownership of those files - including any files in your Drafts.
Permissions in an Organization
Within an Organization, there are many levels of access.
- Organization Permissions: Roles and Account Types determine what you can access, how you can access it, and if you're included in the Organization's billing.
- Team Permissions: Determine how you can interact with files and projects within each team. Learn more.
- Project Permissions: Use Advanced Project Permissions to create private or view-only projects. Learn more.
- File Permissions: Control access at a file-level. Give edit access to a single file, or invite an external collaborator. Learn more.
Every member of an Organization has a Role and an Account Type.
A member's Permissions - on any teams, files or projects - will dictate their Role in the Organization. Their Role also determines if we include that Member in your billing.
A member's Account Type determines what resources and settings they have access to.
Learn more about permissions in an Organization.
Access files and libraries
Existing teams, files, and projects
If you were already signed up for Figma with your work email, we will bring across all of your existing Files and Projects to the Organization.
Existing Teams will be brought across to the Organization as part of the move. Your Organization Admin will be in charge of indicating which Teams need to be in the Organization.
Missing Teams in your account? If you're missing entire Teams from your Figma account - and they aren't in your Personal File Browser - they may not have been migrated. We recommend contacting your Organization Admin to confirm.
Across the Organization
In an Organization, you can access Styles and Components from a variety of places. This includes:
- Styles and Components local to your Files
- Libraries that are shared with the entire Organization
- Libraries shared within Teams that you are included in
- Libraries that have been enabled in Files by default
Organization Admins can choose which default Libraries to enable. You can then find these enabled libraries in the Assets Panel in your Files.
When you search for Components in the Assets Panel, we will search across all Libraries within the Organization.
Learn more about sharing fonts and libraries in an Organization.
Discover and join teams
Teams are groups of designers and collaborators that work together on specific projects. Each Team you create in Figma will have its own Team Page where you can manage a Team's Members, Projects and Files.
There is no limit on how many Teams you can have within an Organization. You can also be a part of more than one Team in an Organization.
A Team's type, or Org Access, determines how you can discover or join the Team.
You can find a list of all Teams in your Organization from the Organization Page. This allows you to:
- View All Teams in an Organization
- See the Team Name, Description and Member count
- Join an Open Team
- Request to Join a Closed Team
- Create a New Team
- Leave a Team
