We are moving projects to a team space and I can move files in (owner), but admin cant

As the title says. We are in the process of moving all our files from individual drafts to a paid team. I’m the owner and I moved mine no problem, but the other designer (set as admin) on our team can not move any of his files into the team or to individual projects. He has the newest update to Figma, and I do not. He is set as admin, with edit access both at the team level and the project levels. Please help!

Hey @KelseyONeill ,
Thank you for reaching out to the community, happy to help!
Can you make sure he has:

  • edit access to the Project the file is currently located in.
  • edit access to the file itself
  • edit access to the Project they’re moving the file into

As reminder:

  • If the file is in the drafts and in order to move a file, you must have “can edit” access on the file, on the file’s current project, and on its destination project.
  • When it comes to files in Drafts, only the user who owns the Drafts folder can move files out of it. This means that even though you own this file, the person whose Drafts it belongs to will need to move it into a team. At that point you can take full ownership over the file and move it freely.

If this still doesn’t help, feel free to reach out directly to the support team with a copy of your file: here Our team can also check your permission right if needed.
Be sure to use your Figma account email, include links to the file, and share it with support-share@figma.com so they can take a closer look.
