Collaborate With Teams

Anima Is a Collaboration Hub

Once you are happy with your design in Adobe XD and want to start collaborating with others, you need to Sync it to an Anima Project.

Anima allows you to share Projects, create Teams, assign different Access Levels, receive feedback as Comments, share Specs, and more, all in one place.

Let’s start collaborating!

Step 1: Create a Team:

There are two ways to create a new Team:

1. Via Adobe XD:

  1. Click Create Project from the Anima panel
  2. Click New Team
  3. In the browser, name your new Team and click ‘Create Team’
  4. Go back to Sketch and select the new created Team from the dropdown list

From Adobe XD

2. Via Projects

  1. In your Projects Dashboard, Click “Create new team” at the bottom of the Workspace sidebar
  2. Name the Team
  3. Click Create

Workspace Sidebar

Step 2: Add Members to Your Team

  1. In Projects, select a your Team’s name from Workspace sidebar
  2. Click more options [] in the top right corner and select Team Settings
  3. Go to the Members tab
  4. Click ‘Add Members’

Via Team Settings

❗️IMPORTANT

Members will not see your design changes until you Sync your Draft with the rest of the Team.

Invite Guests

The difference between a Guest and a Team Member is that Guests can only have access to the project they were invited to, and do not have access to the accounts settings.

Team Members, can see all projects inside the Team they belong to.

Invite as Guests
