Managing a Team From a Starter Plan

I’m a manager not a designer and want to manage billing and members of my company’s Figma Team. I have designers with Professional licenses who will add content to the Team. I don’t want to edit anything though, so I don’t want to pay for a Professional license.

Is there a way to do this please?

Hey @Nick_Davis,

On the Starter plan, team admins can see the following information:

  • Name: Their name, profile picture, and email address. Click the email to copy the address to your clipboard.
  • Last active: This is the date they took an action in Figma, this doesn’t have to be an edit action. For example: moved a file, viewed a prototype, published a library.
  • Team permissions: What level of access they have to the team. If a member doesn’t have team-level permissions, you’ll see how many files they have can edit instead.

Sort and filter members:

  • Use the Search field to find a specific member.
  • Use the drop down fields to filter members by the following criteria:
    • Last active: More than 7 days, More than 30 days, More than 3 months.
    • Team permissions: Owner, Admin, Can edit, Can view.
  • Click Name, Last active, or Team permissions header to sort by that column. Click again to switch between descending ↓ and ascending ↑ order.

Apologies, but this doesn’t answer the question I asked.

For anyone else interested, it transpires that when you choose to upgrade your plan, you must pick a Team to upgrade, and you are then given a choice as to which Team members become designers and which remain on the Starter plan.

So, you can create a Team on the Starter plan and choose to upgrade that Team, remain on the Starter plan yourself, and upgrade other members’ plans.
