Today, we’re launching new FigJam plans, along with a new Figma Enterprise plan, to welcome more people into the design process.
Companies need a place to come together, whether it’s to work through problems, riff on ideas, or simply connect and have fun. And for a lot of our users, Figma has increasingly become that place—particularly as design opens up company-wide and more people are invited to take part in the process.
But as more users have found a home for design in Figma, we’ve heard that brainstorming, designing, and building all in one place can get… well… a bit messy. At Cisco, for example, having multiple product groups working alongside each other broke down silos across departments. But the sheer number of functions and projects also meant more files for users to sift through, less flexibility for teams to work with, and a lot of responsibility for administrators to handle on their own.
We want Figma to be a place where everyone can participate in the design process together—from brainstorm to build—while also making it easy to stay organized and flow from one task to the next. That’s why we’re excited to launch new FigJam plans, as well as a new Figma Enterprise plan, to welcome more people into the design process.
We launched FigJam into beta last April because we wanted to learn from our users. After all, their use cases were what inspired us to build FigJam in the first place.
Since then, it’s been amazing to see all the different ways that teams have come together in FigJam. FigJam is the home for Dwell’s editorial team to crowdsource ideas in “swarms,” for Square’s People team to conduct new hire onboarding, and for Twitter’s engineering team to hold cross-functional bug bashes where anyone can take part.
To support all the different use cases we were seeing, we introduced plugins, widgets, and grab-and-go templates We are opening up our platform and inviting all builders to create the first plugins and widgets for FigJam.

Like Figma, FigJam will be free on the Starter plan, with access to unlimited personal whiteboards and three shared whiteboards with unlimited collaborators. For unlimited shared whiteboards for your entire organization, plans start at $3 per editor.
As all types of teams embraced FigJam and more people contributed to the design process, Figma began to feel a bit crowded and overwhelming for users and administrators. So we set out to create a solution for design-centric companies that want an easier way to manage and support the ever-growing number of people and teams getting involved in their design process.
After nearly a year of working closely with companies like Cisco, Dell, and Grammarly, we’re excited to introduce our new Enterprise plan. Figma Enterprise provides the structure, granular controls, advanced security, and support that organizations need to collaborate effectively.
Starting today, companies can use Figma and FigJam on the Enterprise plan, which cost $75 per editor per month and $5 per editor per month, respectively. All of the features we highlight below are either available now or will be in the next few months.
Companies are made up of many groups and departments, each with their own ways of working. Figma Enterprise introduces a new way to flex Figma to work with your company’s existing structures: workspaces.
With workspaces, organizations can create dedicated places for different groups and departments within their company. This helps users focus on the information that’s most relevant to them while continuing to provide global access to the organization’s content.
Workspaces also help users sift through the noise to find relevant information faster.
- Administrators can set default teams and libraries for each workspace, so it’s more obvious to users where to look first for files and components.
- Users can filter their search to a specific workspace to fine-tune results and surface the files, people, or components they need faster.
As organizations grow, administrators have to manage thousands of files, people, and permissions. It can be tough. As Travis Isaacs, Head of Design for WebEx Suite at Cisco put it, a one-size-fits all approach to administration can “create a lot of complexity for design leaders.”
Figma Enterprise provides companies the tools to delegate and automate administrative tasks, so companies feel confident welcoming more people in Figma.
- Delegate workspace administration—including membership, roles, and true-ups—to the people in their company that know the users in that workspace best.
- Leverage role-setting via SCIM to automatically assign users a role in Figma via your identity management provider to streamline license management.
- Manage costs by defaulting new users to a viewer-restricted role that requires administrator approval to claim a paid seat.
After participating in the Figma Enterprise beta, and taking its features for a spin, Travis at Cisco said, “Figma Enterprise gives us the flexibility to meet the different needs of each team.”
Protecting your work and information is our highest priority, on every plan. With Figma Enterprise, companies have more granular control over how their organization—and the content teams create—is accessed and shared, giving them an additional layer of security for even more peace of mind.
Figma Enterprise will allow companies to define their guest access policy and if or how external collaborators can gain access to their organization. In the future, we aim to make an Enterprise API available so companies can manage users and permissions, and retrieve activity logs programmatically.
Our goal is to make Figma a place where diverse teams of all sizes can do their best design work. Launching Figma Enterprise and FigJam out of beta brings us two meaningful steps closer to that goal. You can try out FigJam with your team or, to learn more about Figma Enterprise, get in touch with our sales team.
