Friction naturally occurs when teams collaborate on design.

In the book “Discussing Design”, Connor and Irizarry describe a common scenario:

Reactions and responses turn up in Reply All bullet points, fragments of disjointed and combined discussion threads, and even worse, piecemeal over a period of time. — Discussing Design

This is a nightmare when trying to iterate quickly.

To maintain flow while they create, share, test, and iterate designs, teams turn to Figma.

Figma is a popular tool that connects everyone in the design process so teams can deliver better products, faster. That’s why today we’re excited to announce the Figma + Indent Integration is now available.

With Figma, everyone involved in the design lifecycle from designers to implementers and stakeholders can be kept in the loop throughout an iterative design workflow.

Optimized for sharing, presenting, and gathering feedback, and paired with real-time collaboration, it simplifies cross functional collaboration.

All design work, from ideation to execution, can be found in one place with searchable assets and shareable styles. This results in increased consistency across projects and teams, making it a great solution for organizations of all sizes.

With Indent, users can safely borrow auto-expiring Figma viewer access right from Slack. Admins are able to easily grant temporary access for users via time-bound membership of a corresponding identity group.

Requests get automatically routed to approvers based on security policies, then approvers set the access duration. Indent logs all access related data and provides admins automated compliance audit evidence generation and streamlined user access reviews.

With Figma + Indent you can:

  • Share viewer access to design files that is time-bound and audit-logged
  • Secure files from unauthorized internal access by limiting indefinite permissions
  • Streamline onboarding for new hires who need to view in-progress designs

Set up Figma + Indent

You’ll need both an Indent account and a Figma Enterprise account. After that, granting time-bound access to Figma files is just a few steps away:
