Here at Magicul, we’re driven by a passion for empowering designers with efficient tools to save them time and optimize workflows. Today, we’re excited to reveal our latest feature for the Figma Backup application: Support for Figma Branches. Especially Figma Organizational customers have been telling us about this feature and we’ve been working hard to add support for Branches. Your Figma data will now be fully secured including Figma branches.
Here’s a quick sneak peak of how the interface look like now with Figma branches enabled in the Figma Backup tool:
What are Figma Branches and How Do They Benefit Large Figma Organizations?
Branches in Figma are a significant feature of the Figma Organizational plan. They enable designers to create, review, and merge changes from different branches into the main file. All without disrupting the workflow of others.
In the context of larger organizations, the ability to work on separate branches is a game changer. It allows multiple designers to work simultaneously on different aspects of a project, while maintaining the original integrity of the main design file. It also enables side-by-side comparisons of changes. Reviewing changes has never been easier in Figma.
Once you’ve setup the Figma backup tool, every branch created will be automatically added to the Figma backup tool. This provides your organization with an additional layer of security throghout your design process.
Unveiling Support for Figma Branches in our Figma Backup Application
Once you begin using branches in your design process, our Figma Backup application automatically detects these branches and includes them in the backup procedure. This support continues until the branches are merged into the main file.
But the real magic happens even after the branches are merged. In the settings page you can define the file retention in days for your backups. This ensures that your backup files, including all the branches, continue to exist for the period defined by you.
In other words, you now have full control over the retention of your design files. You can effortlessly track changes, revert to earlier designs, or maintain a record of your design evolution, regardless of how branches are manipulated over time.
We are thrilled about the possibilities that support for Figma Branches brings to your design workflow. We can’t wait for you to try this feature and experience the enhanced control and convenience that it offers.
Stay tuned for more exciting updates from Magicul, and as always, happy designing!
