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.
Reopening the feature request, based on feedback.

Please start on this one next, lot's of votes here!
I was building a flat that has a static background, and a container within it changes content based on user actions. I was sad when I found out that I couldn't create transitions/animations on the container within the artboard without the action applying to the entire artboard.
I wish I could have a prototype that allows interactions on elements within an artboard, without transitioning the board as a whole.
Ley us point element to same page. i want to set up a menu and would like that the element of the same page has the link that links to the same page. Also let us copy link form one artboar to other so we fdont have to set up linking in every page.

Really need the function of constructing animation as

+1 for microanimations, an absolute must for the future of web/app experience.
At a minimum, you should be able to do something like this. I started to drop in some screenshots and mock up a prototype, but there just aren't enough page transitions to make it usable. You really need to be able to click a button (transparent box) and have a menu pop up. Having just that feature alone, added to the current Xd build would add so much value!

Stuff like this absolutely has to be in it. The ability to type into input fields, select radio button options, checkboxes, dropdowns, etc. That's real interaction. Not just clicking images.

+1 For microinteraction

Would be great if eventually we can use XD for interaction design using a timeline similar to http://principleformac.com/
The ability to position elements on both artboards and add a timeline for their change in position, opacity, etc.
I'd like to see the ability to create interactions for a drop down menu. Maybe like it unfolding like a dropdown ladder? and reclining when you do not hover over it. Also would like to see more options with cursor hovers over buttons/links/etc.

Principle's approach in which the same object on two artboards having different height/width/opacity/etc.. and automatically transitioning between those two states when creating a link between those two artboards makes state based transitions and interactions extremely quick to prototype and test. I'm hoping you offer similar functionality, as other tools often require a bit too much effort or time to prototype rapidly.
Hi, I propose that XD manage own language to create unique animations and transitions, what do you think? http://bit.ly/1OlAoub

So close yet so far away. Nearly there, try looking at this app and competing with them: http://tumult.com/hype/

To be able to target specific elements within an artboard and show the transitions without the need for the page to reload a brand new artboard.

Or at least allow animated gif's to play.

Integration with Animate CC enhances the experience!
Cameron Campbell commented
This is going to be key if XD wants to truly compete with Sketch and the Craft Suite from Invision which already allows these animations. Please bring this to XD!!!!
I am thinking about Select/Drag/Drop modelling, where the pointer adopts an icon whilst dragging. Switching to a new state could occur on pressing/releasing the pointer. In the 'pressed' state, the pointer could animate with movement... ...or some such.

This is especially important for transitions! (see Sketch)

Also It will be interesting having the possibility to hide the cursor of the mouse for the video export. And just see the click on the element for no touchable device
