For 2 years I’ve been working with a team, and we created a bunch of documenting tools, like the sticky notes, some highlights blocks with arrows, etc as a components. And we used them to document the designs (Dev notes, behaviour notes, etc) in regular files.
Product managers also tend to draw flow lines to connect mockups so that developers easily understand what’s going on.
FigJam is basically making the same, but it’s not that usable in our case, because you need to put a lot of effort to move designs from Figma file to Jam, and it’s a hustle to make changes and mockups sync across. And even then, you need to somehow link back to Figma file so that developers can use inspector.
Thus, my suggestion: add FigJam as a layer above regular pages same as commenting.
- You can draw notes and changes while on group calls, instead of messing with designs (argghh)
- You can document designs inside the file without the need to push designs around different files
- Everything is in one place
