Favouriting Figma files

Problem:
I have an array of Figma files I want to track across Teams/Projects and lose track of them. They contain relevant context I need for work, examples I want to learn from, or resources important for me. In a large Org with many teams, domains, projects this is very challenging to do.

Workaround:
I either need to keep them living as a tab, Duplicate into my drafts, Save a document with links to relevant figma files, or dig through my Recent files.

Proposal:

  • Favourites tab in same area as Recents, Drafts.
  • Favourite/Heart icon in figma file cards or list items.
  • Favourite file from project name dropdown.

Impact:

  • Easier organization of personal files of interest making it easier to skill up or access relevant context to improve/speed up my work.
  • Remove all the tabs I dont need at a given moment making Figma more performant and situationally focused on what I am working on at that time.
