Releasing a design system version

  • Dark

Article Summary

To create a new design system version:

  1. Sign in to the DSM website and open your design system.
  2. At the top-left of the page, click the Draft drop-down.
  3. Click Release a new version.
  4. Enter the Version name and an optional Version description.
  5. Click Release version.

The new version is pushed to all team members, and they can access the updated system immediately.

When you publish a new version, all signed-in users receive a notification. That notification links to a page that shows the version history and release notes. If someone is viewing your design system, but they aren't signed in, they won't see this notification.

Releasing a version from Sketch

From the DSM-Sketch plugin, when you view a design system's versions from the version drop down, you'll also see the option to release a version from Sketch. When you select Release new version, you'll be taken to the DSM web experience to complete your version release notes and publish your version.
