Ownership for Teams/Projects/Files

In Figma, is there any way of seeing which projects and files any single team member owns?

In this specific case one of my designers moved to a different team, still within the company but in a different country. They will still have a company Figma account.

Some of their Projects have the setting “Members of Team X can view” (While inside the projects all the files are set to “Everyone at Team X can access this file.”) it has become a bit of a hassle when Team X members have to ask them to change the settings just to be able to add or move Files.

As far as I can see there’s no way of getting a list of Projects and Files they own like:

Team Member John Smith has ownership of:

  • Team X - Project Y - File A, File B, File C
  • Team Z - Project Q - File D

I can’t seem to find any way of checking that, except going through each and every Project and File one by one.

Same seems to apply to Team members that have left (as in, their Figma accounts were terminated) that will still be listed as Owners…

Unfortunately, there isn’t a one-stop place to see all the files a person owns. Additionally, people can open secret teams within your organization which are not visible to anyone besides the people on the team, so you would‌‌ be seeing an incomplete list.

Not sure if this part may be helpful in the future, but if there are people who are no longer in your org that were owners of a file you need access to (or need to transfer ownership of), you can reach out to our support team that can help: https://help.figma.com/hc/en-us/requests/new?ticket_form_id=360005944714

Thank you.

I’m not very worried about secret teams, it’s mostly about being able to help people that are leaving the team change permissions/ownerships. It would be nice to tell them to just look at a specific list and not to go through their Teams/Projects/files one by one.

Some of our team have been using Figma since 2019, and have worked on many teams… It can get rather messy.

Totally understand – I wish I had a better answer at the moment :slightly_frowning_face:
