Preload all artboards when reviewing a published prototype
When publishing a project with many artboards (300-500+), it often takes a lot of time to load the artboard when reviewing the link. If the artboards contain heavy visual design then the loading speed is slow event for projects with fewer artboards.
As a result there is a lot of disruption in the review meetings. And the management/client often does not have the time to sit through the delay caused by the artboard loading.
It would be great if we have a way to preload all the prototype artboards after accessing its published link in the background. This will enable a fluid experience during the review meeting.
We can also show if there is a progress bar too that shows how much % of the artboards have been loaded. This way the team can keep the browser window open before the meeting and let it take the time to load all artboards in background and the review process can start at the right time.
This also provides a smooth experience in cases where the internet connection is slow.

This is so much more important now we can add video and Lottie in to prototypes, I'm already seeing huge lagging with transitions between screens when they contain videos.
