  1. Animate individual elements separately (custom animation transitions / microinteractions)

    Support for simple animation.
    Example: Show/hide a slide or push menu

    This would enhance a demo and engage prospects that are familar with common application patterns.

    • Scrollable Area (not scrolling whole artboard)

      Define a scrollable area within an artboard

      This provides real-world app use cases, such as a table, slideshow, or iOS dropdown lists.

      • Sticky (Fixed) elements in scrolling artboards (header, nav bar, etc.)

        Since you already started with scrollable area inside artboard, it would be awesome if we could define sticky header. For example, one page website has a lot of content, but I want to create sticky header so when I scroll down, it stays at the top. Maybe you could add the option so we can define the group and assign the sticky header option to it. That way on any artboard we can just assign that option to it and that's it.

          • Artboard Overlays (sidebar / menu / popup) in interactive prototypes

            Hi there, currently the only interaction is a page switch with some easing functions, but when you click a button, it would be nice that you van select a artboard that you can use as a "overlay" over another artboard. So that way you can create lightboxes in your protytype.

            • Global/Master artboard templates (pin objects across all artboards)

              1. Ability to have a single object (or group) break out of its artboard and cross multiple artboards within a single prototype. The simplest use case is the creation of a global navigation bar that spans across multiple screens. This object's interactive elements would also work across multiple screens as well, and any edits to this object would update across the rest of the screens.

              2. Easy interaction management and editing. Also provides consistency with consistent elements within an experience.

              • Allow interaction wires/links from objects inside a symbol

                I was so excited about the new symbols feature that I made all of my navbars in a design a symbol. This may be one of the most obvious uses of symbols, since every page will almost always have the same navbar. But you can't connect objects inside a symbol. Therefore, you can't connect nav items, icons, logos in a nav bar.

                Either allow connects for objects inside symbols, but don't propagate them in all instances, or DO propagate them in all instances. But you HAVE to be able to connect objects inside symbols in prototype mode.

                Otherwise, we can…

                • Gestures - swipe, pinch/zoom, force touch

                  In order to full use this as a UX professional, I would have to have the ability to include gestures, most critically for handing a stakeholder a wireframe or design. Gestural swipes, two-finger zoom, force-touch, etc. Otherwise I don't think too many experience UX professionals will be able to properly communicate core functionality and the behavioral imperatives incumbent to the process.

                  • Interactive Prototyping for User Testing

                    I use JustInMind to prototype Web and Mobile apps that I then user-test. The JIM application is less than optimal, but to attract a broader Human Factors / Usability / Design audience you're going to need a lot more than "scrolling."

                    Interactive elements such as text fields, check boxes, drop-downs, etc. that can all be connected, responding to user inputs as needed, in a manner that replicates a real application in its native environment is what is needed.

                    I look forward to that day, as your design tools and simple, visual linking paradigm are certainly winners.

                    • Copy-Paste should preserve interaction wires/links

                      Ability to copy wires along with assets. For example, if I have a home button that will always link to the same page, it would be helpful if I didn't have to wire the button each time. This would also be helpful when duplicating artboards so the links stay intact. For example, if I need to show a dropdown menu, I would do this by duplicating the artboard and adding a wire to the dropdown menu. In this case, I would want all the existing wires to stay the same.

                      • More slide transitions

                        Few more nice slide transitions wouldn't kill anyone, would it :)

                        • Scroll to Anchor Link Target

                          The anchor link that target the specific part of the page. This is the significant user experience on web usability where user can "back to top" or can navigate (i.e. from menu bar) to the specific sessions without the need to scroll through entire pages.

                          • Carousel / Side-scroll

                            Ability to create and customise content carousels or slideshow type scrollable areas.

                            Currently there is a "scroll" feature in build, but it seems to be about page scroll and up/down scrollable areas.

                            • More default animations and easings

                              It would be great with a few more features/interactive animations when you link the pages. More easing options. I guess what I'm saying I would like to have more animations and effects based on what we have on websites and apps to this date.

                              transition presets

                              • Text input field with actions

                                For prototyping and user testing, a text input field control would be very helpful. Bonus if you could apply actions to enter / submit based on different strings.

                                • Add Interactive Native Widgets/Controls to Prototypes

                                  Support for native device functions (e.g. Cordova).

                                  Example dropdown selection, media players, maps, etc.

                                  This would increase the demo's effectiveness and allow for a more real-world prototype.

                                  • Enable timed transitions (not triggered by user interactions)

                                    • Export interactive PDF with clickable "PageTo" links

                                      Please add the option to export all artboards of the prototype as a PDF document of many pages, preserving prototype interactivity saving links as PDF internal "pageTo" links (or invisible linkTo rectangles).
                                      So that in this way the prototype can be navigated in the PDF file like on a web page (transitions excluded of course).
                                      This would allow a very efficient "deliverable" design document for the client.

                                      • Logic in prototyping - conditional behavior, branching, if/then

                                        To be able to prototype for usability testing and demonstrations there needs to be a bit more intelligence around how experiences are joined up togehter.

                                        If clause example:
                                        If user makes choice a, do x. If user makes choice b, do z. And so on.

                                        Variables:
                                        When user makes a choice/clicks/fills in a field etc. assign a variable. Then allow designer to use variables in an if-clause to make decision which roots to go down.

                                        Thank you :)

                                        • Custom Scroll Animation Behaviour

                                          Most of modern apps have some custom behaviour - for example

                                          In user profile, you see big profile picture, but when you scroll down to see user posts - picture gets smaller and moves to the corner.

                                          Would be cool to be able to treat scroll position as kind of keyframes timeline, where you can modify styles of some elements and tween them depending on how much some view is scrolled.

                                          Some tools have kind of similar option - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jRHuAq4PqQo - check first 30 secs.
