How to send a Figma design

When a designer sends a design, it should include a Figma URL and provide an Access Token in case the developer does not have an account in Figma or cannot access the Figma project.

The Figma URL must have the following format:
https://www.figma.com/file/:key/:title[?version-id=:version]

Save a snapshot

It is highly recommended to save a snapshot of the Figma file before sharing the Figma URL, which includes the version-id parameter.

The snapshot can be saved by going to File > Save to Version History in Figma, and Figma will ask you for a revision title and revision description as follows.
