Sharing Prototype in a closed network
Currently your sharing prototypes via the internet. What happens to people that work in a location without access to the internet but have an internal network (example: Military personnel). Is there a way or a possibility to share the prototype with all the interaction as a pdf or other type of file extension?
This functionality is now available for a limited set of customers using Creative Cloud for Enterprise. While offline publication is available, current and future sharing and collaboration features will be restricted. The full product functionality and experience in XD is available only when XD uses Creative Cloud services. If you have additional questions, please reach out to your Adobe account team for more information!

this is a must... the ability to have an offline Prototype will be crucial for the majority of platforms using this tool for security reasons...
the future of almost any professional working environment using XD hangs on this...
could you imagine only being able to save out of Photoshop, illustrator indesign, Premiere After affects etc... being entirely reliant on an adobe webserver?
I don't thinks i can imagine that.

I work in fintech and info sec. is key in this business. The lack of this feature is a major deal breaker for me. I can't have my work in the cloud and sharing it my customers.
I would like to export my work into an HTML-file and run the prototype locally/offline in an actual sized browser window. I need to have it realistic.
Grant Bunyan commented
The feature title is a bit misleading. Should be 'Sharable offline prototypes', or something similar. However I'd very, very much like sharable prototypes with restricted access. Not many businesses want to allow their next big idea to be viewable by the whole world, not until it's ready anyway.
– Export to PDF would solve this. (Balsamiq has this)
– And app to run prototype in offline mode would solve this as well. (InVision app has this)

Several of our clients have material that is sensitive to leaking before it has been announced. This keeps us from uploading prototypes to any form of web server.
We'd love to see an option to save your interactive prototype locally on your computer, either as some form of executable or as markup.

Sometimes it is difficult to get an online connectivity when doing a presentation in another place. It would be good to export the prototype in a clickable offline version.
John Scott Guggenheimer commented
I second the idea of allowing saving some form of local prototype. A lot of our clients have sensitive information that they would never allow to be published online even if password protected.
The HTML output idea is nice, but I'd also be OK with some form of executable that can be saved locally :)
Thanks for great work and a great product guys!

I'm dying to be able to get to share my prototypes with colleagues for preview/review activities - and being that we'd like to keep the prototypes "in house" (e.g. confidential, not on the web) to protect our IP, it would REALLY be worthwhile.
I mean - I can tell you that I'm already planning on buying the ruddy software - but THIS would make it much easier to justify.

This could be done if we could export html, css, images + JS.

+1 — I want to be able to share the interactive prototype but uploading sensitive prototypes to another server is disallowed.
Basil Schmid commented
We work for companys and also public services for which data security is a must. So we are not allowed to share any of our work on servers that are not inside our company.
In Axure there's this handy feature to export html files to upload them on any server you want. I'd love to see a similar way of sharing prototypes in XD.
Can we add a login screen?

Right now, your option is to create a video of your interactive prototype. The video can be recorded in the Preview window. In the future, we plan to do password protection for shared prototypes.

Export to self contained HTML in a simple folder structure would be great!
I wish it was possible to share prototypes as an interactive pdf.
I just want to add my/our voice to this issue. I really do understand Adobe's desire to use a closed CC system for sharing files, but this is an absolute no starter for our company. I'm pushing hard to adopt this system to speed up and make our production model work, but we MUST be able to export these files within our system.
Fully understand the Adobe CC business rationale to have users locked into prototype hosting 'only' by CC service. But to be frank this is a total no go for me and my teams. Confidentiality is absolute key to our business. Super short sightedness guys, you're crippling this product before it gets out of the gate.
Sharing over a internal network or an internal server would be a very helpful feature to keep data safe and confidential.

Sharing prototype locally would be valuable. I also noticed a feature request to password protect shared prototypes, which could provide the security to distribute prototypes within a company that doesn't want to compromise its intellectual capital.
Shinji Pons commented
This needs to be addressed - Sharing on the web is great but for people who need to maintain confidentiality, it cannot be the only option.
