Microsoft has released another UI kit for Figma! This one is named the Microsoft 365 UI Kit. It allows you to design responsive applications that span the Microsoft 365 ecosystem. It allows for quickly designing applications and mock-ups using Figma’s popular interface.
This UI kit also provides guidance for apps running in Teams and Outlook. There’s pre-built screens to mimic the web and mobile interfaces.
It’s also got a very handy ‘Getting Started’ section so you get your environment set up properly, and work with your team collaboratively on solutions.
