Regarding the issue of the draft function after Figma's update

Putting the drafts under the management of the organizational dimension mostly does not conform to the usage behavior in Asian regions. If a person leaves the organization, then how will his files be handled? And Figma is purchased according to the organizational dimension, then this draft mode is actually free. This mixed logic is very easy to mislead users. (Is my current file paid? And will it bring additional expenses to the organization after I share this file?) Therefore, as far as my current usage situation is concerned, I prefer the original interaction usage logic: using the draft box function under the personal dimension. If possible, the draft box can consider adding the function of group classification to help users summarize and classify all drafts through the classification method according to personal habits.


Of course, if this update is for all future usage scenarios to require users to pay for usage and no longer provide any free mechanism, then the above feedback can be ignored. Finally, the reason why users choose Figma, I think, is also because of the good user experience and trust in this tool. If all are charged according to the business strategy, other similar design tools to Figma on the market should have new strategies to compete for users.
so. 吃相别太难看

100% this.
This is by far the worst update so far. A clear attempt to avoid multiple people editing a single file in drafts without paying as part of a team. And disguised as “we are doing a favor to users”. When it’s just a business strategy path towards no more free use.

Organization for projects and files inside a team was already bad. Now is terrible. I was already paying just to be able to organize my projects, and now it sucks.

This is getting every day more similar to Adobe. Hopefully competitors will arise soon just as competitors arose when Sketch started to suck.


Yes, despite all this, I still hope that Figma will continue to improve. I hope that in Figma’s business competition, they won’t excessively erode designers’ confidence in the software.
