How Do I Invite Someone to My Figma Project?

Inviting someone to your Figma project is a great way to collaborate on design projects in real-time. Figma is a powerful design collaboration platform that enables teams to work together on the same project, no matter where they are located.

When inviting someone to your project, it’s important to consider the person’s role and how they will be contributing.

The first step in inviting someone to your Figma project is to create an invitation link. To do this, open up the project you would like to invite someone to and select “Invite People” from the main menu.

You will then be prompted to enter their email address or username and choose a role for them. The roles are Editor, Viewer, or Commenter. Once you have selected their role, click “Invite” and an invitation link will be sent directly to their inbox.

The next step is to provide instructions on how they should join the project. This can be done by including a brief message in the invitation link itself or by sending them a separate message with further instructions. If you want them to join the project quickly, it’s best to include all of the necessary information in the invitation link itself so that they don’t have any additional steps.

Once they have accepted your invitation, there are a few more steps that you can take in order for them to get up and running quickly with your Figma projects. First, it’s important for them to understand what kind of access they have been given and how it affects their ability to interact with your projects. For example, if you give them Editor access then they will be able to make changes directly on the canvas while Viewers will only be able inspect what has been designed.

You should also provide clear directions on how they can navigate within Figma so that they can find all of the assets and tools needed for collaboration. Finally, you may want to provide some tips on best practices for working together in real-time such as using chat tools like Slack or Zoom for communication.


Inviting someone from outside of your team into one of your Figma projects is a great way for teams spread across multiple locations or time zones collaborate effectively. By creating an invitation link and providing clear instructions on how they should join and navigate within Figma, as well as some tips on best practices for working together in real-time, you can ensure that everyone involved has an enjoyable experience.
