Hi Friends - I am working with another designer on a fast paced project. We badly need the ability to collaborate together.
For example, a common scenario we face: A header, that appears throughout the application requires updating. At the moment we are working using seperate Balsamiq files. Updating the header, requires one of us making the update and then sharing the balsamiq file so the other person can open manually import it into their Balsamiq file. This process is very slow and risky.
We did try placing the Balsamiq file on a network share, but this scared us when the file became corrupted. After that we said “No way” and have been working on our files separately and locally. In addition, these files are becoming quite large - around 14mg despite clearing the trash and so forth, so it’s becoming impossible to email them back and forth.
I am aware that we can break the file up and so and so forth, but that is only going to make life more complicated.
I can’t be the only designer in this situation. I’d like to hear how other folks are beating this challenge and working collaboratively. Any advice is appreciated.
