Versioning Figma Libraries

I’m currently trying to architect an approach on the best way to set up and maintain libraries.

Current Structure:

  • A single file for styles: DS Styles
  • A few designers
  • Rest of the population are viewers
  • Updates are made to the live DS Styles file
  • Version History has milestones set for tacking

What I think would work better is to leverage the recommended use of Version History (Figma’s Recommendations) but I’m concerned with a few items.

If we make milestones and duplicate each of the milestones - we’ll have individual files, each with its own library. I see this becoming a lot to manage and confusing for users.

Is there a better to separate out WIP & Live files for libraries or to have Versions of Libraries?
