Selective Sharing and Viewers

Our hand-off process in Figma starts with developers being added as Viewers through the Share Panel on a per-project basis — which comes in handy if you work with multiple freelancer developers.

Alternatively, you can add a developer as a Team Member from the Team Dashboard (with View Only permissions) and give them access to all projects. The flexibility here is noticeable — you can just share final deliverables with freelance contractors while having the in-house team able to see all projects.

Furthermore, Viewers don’t require a billing account and can be added for free.

They get access to a real-time version of your project files from the desktop app, browsers and even mobile devices. Being a multi-platform tool, developers can also access and work from Windows or Mac OS X.
