3.3 Getting Design Feedback
Hello and welcome back to this course. In this lesson you are going to learn how to get design feedback using Figma. Now, for this Figma uses a comments system, that's available for the team members, basically. So if you remember, I have this project here, shared with my developer who, incidentally, is also called Adi. And I have Adi logged in to Chrome right here. And as you can see, he is in Team Adi. And this is the owner, which is my other self. And this is myself, which can only view projects, right? So I have access to demo mobile app, and I have access to the file that we've been working. So what I can do is, basically, have a look at whats been done and then leave feedback. I click on this Show Comments button. And then my cursor changes to a bubble and I can leave comments. For example, let's say I don't like this logo. I can choose an emoji if I want, or I can post. And then I can also put a comment here saying, maybe a green button would work better. Okay, so I left two comments. Now if I go back to Figma here and I open up Demo Mobile App You can see that I have a notification here. It tells me that I have comments. So I can show the comments. I can see them, they're right here in my sidebar. And I can see exactly where those comments were placed, right? The first one is here, I can click on it. I don't like this logo. Okay, we'll fix it, right? And what else, this other one, maybe a green button would work better. And the typical designer response, nope, we're the designers, blue is better. And we hit Reply. And that conversation is then carried on to my other team members, right? And what's interesting is that I can also see the cursor of the owner here. So if I scroll back and I put my cursor over the logo. You can see that my cursor here in real time is above the logo. And I can actually work with this in real time with my team members. They can write comments, they can use their cursor to point to certain things, and we can have a really nice conversation about this. Now, if as an owner, I decide that one of the comments is resolved. Well, I can go to it and I can hit Resolved, right? And that will disappear from both my interface and my team member's interface. You can also choose to receive email notifications whenever a comment is posted. And on the top, we can show the resolved comments or you can hide them, it's really up to you. And that's really cool, I think it's very nice that you have all of these tools at your disposal in one central place for collaboration, for prototyping, for designing. I think Figma is really, really promising. Now, so far we have looked at Figma from a designer's point of view, but what about a developer's point of view? How can Figma help you do your job a lot faster? Well, we'll find out about that in the next lesson.
