Feature Request: Add user & role management to a team

In Figma, user and role management should be more valued. Assigning and managing a user role plays plays a crucial part in ensuring effective collaboration and seamless workflow within design projects. By properly managing users and roles, teams can maintain organization, efficiency, and clarity.

User and role management in Figma is important for the following reasons:

  1. Access Control: Assigning specific roles to team members helps control access to project files and restricts editing permissions.

  2. Collaboration: Clear user management allows for streamlined collaboration among team members.

  3. Project Organization: By assigning roles and permissions, teams can establish structure within projects.

  4. Variations for Enhanced Functionality: Features like adding tags to identify individuals or grouping users together simplify user management further. Assigning tags for competency or specific roles allows for quick identification and easy communication with the right team members.

  5. Efficiency in User Invitation and Project Access: Integrating user management features like inviting user groups to access a project streamlines the process of granting permissions.

What I need in Figma is the ability to:

  1. See people of the team (this exists)
  2. Assign different user roles to those people
  3. Add tags (or similar) to people to know “where they belong” (e.g. designer, dev, or maybe a different stakeholder)
  4. Invite those roles / tags to files & projects
  5. That the invited roles keep in-sync with the role list if changes are applied

Overall, effective user and role management in Figma not only enhances team collaboration but also improves project organization, access control, and overall efficiency. Integrating additional features such as user tagging and group invitations further enhances user identification and streamlines the collaborative design process.
