Editor's note: Sympli Pulse is currently running a private early access beta. If you'd like to be part of it, please fill out this form and we'll contact you with more info.


Please watch the short installation tutorials for Mac or Windows, or use the instructions below on how to install and use the Pulse early access plugin.

  1. Download the plugin files from the email you received.

  2. Unzip the downloaded plugin archive file. Please don't move or delete the unzipped plugin folder after installation, otherwise, the plugin won’t work.

  3. Open your Figma desktop app. As the Pulse plugin is not listed in the Figma community just yet, the browser version of Figma is not supported at the moment. Download the Figma app.

  4. In the menu, click Plugins -> Manage Plugins.

  5. Scroll down to the "In development" section and click on the + icon to the right of Create New Plugin.

  6. In the opened dialog window, attach the manifest.json file and click Continue.

  7. Open a design you want to track in Figma and right-click on the canvas to open the context menu. In the context menu, click Plugins -> Development -> Sympli Pulse.

  8. Click the "Sign In with Figma" button and authorize Pulse to access your information on Figma (Pulse needs this to talk to the Figma API.)

  9. The installation is complete!


Lastly, get back to Figma and copy-paste the Figma file link into the corresponding field in the plugin window.

Now, you're all set!

The app can track Figma's version history, comments, and changes to specific artboards or components; it allows you to visually compare different history states.

If you have any questions – read this help article or ping us through the chat in the app or at support@sympli.io.

And, since you're the early explorers, we're happy to hear all your thoughts and wishes! Congrats!
