Commenting and making annotations in design OR on shared prototype online
it's pretty self-explanatory.. you can give feedback by commenting and making annotations on the prototype, if someone posts something you get an email with a summarium of all the feedback or you get notified via creative cloud.. there could be settings where you want to be notified and if instantly or like 1 hour later!
this is valuable to me because it makes the communication easier, which otherwise would lead to tons of emails going back and forth.
With our November release, you can now add comments to shared prototypes! Comments are contextual to the artboard. Please check it out and let us know what you think. Feature improvements should be suggested as new ideas in UserVoice.

I totally agree !
Annotation feature would be great, saving hours sometimes days on big projects just marking up designs. Also less 3rd party software to use is a massive plus

Having a way to add annotations would be great.
I'd hate to add textfields (with specific look) to the design to make annotations, it would only make the design more complicated.

It would be super useful for my team if we could have some version of this:
- Share prototype with stakeholders
- They use commenting tools in their browser similar to (or better than) InVision
- These comments sync back to an open XD document
- Can review and complete feedback in a dedicated 'Comments' or 'Feedback' tab in the title bar of XD
That's not a big ask right!? :)

here's my proposal or suggestion how commenting and annotations could work in XD:
it's pretty much self-explanatory.. I thought a timeline would make sense here, you have a good look over the screens and you can jump to the last one immediately and read the feedback you've received.. when you hover over the number, you see who commented and which comments are new!
I chose a different color to show on which screen you currently are, so it's clear what's what.
let me know what you think.
I need this today!

This is huge. Without comment threads, notifications, (and recording) for prototypes hosted on xd.adobe.com – the share link is not super useful. I will still turn to tools like InVision or Moqups for prototyping until there are at least the baseline features that allow gathering feedback.
That said, you guys have gotten off to a really great start!

Ability to comment in the prototype. Helping remote teams to work together and comment about features and stuff in the prototype.
This will be usable with a commenting structure like InVision. Until then, I can't make the switch. Thanks for your hardwork guys - keep it up!
This would make this app an instant killed at my organization and replace multiple tools all at once. A good way of collecting and organizing client feedback is key. Also the ability to have them approve items within that feedback system.

I like the idea of a stand alone comment system, but it would also be great if it could be incorporated into online proofing systems such as proof HQ
