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.
In today’s release of XD, we’ve introduced scroll to anchor link. You can learn more about this here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CpfKVTkPbgg
Need this asap! Very common interaction in web design.
A workaround I'm using for now:
1) Set all your interactions as intended.
2) Group all content on your artboard.
3) Duplicate artboard.
4) Move the grouped content up until you have your desired anchor target in the viewport.
4) Choose the scroll trigger from your group and create an on-tap auto-animate transition to the next artboard. When triggered, you'll now get the impression of scrolling to your anchor.
5) Set a floating/sticky "back to top" button on the bottom of your viewport, with an auto-animate trigger back to the first/previous artboard. You'll need this to scroll back up, as unfortunately this workaround won't let you scroll back up manually.
Come on with this feature. What in the eff are we doing. Fundamental UX function, and it's completely missing. Let's go already.
This is really a must have today! Please fix this, it's gonna help us a lot. Thanks Adobe, we love you, thats why we cry for this function <3

need this badly
Because of this missing feature I have to find a better prototyping tool. Thats sad. All of my tools are part of the CC I don't want to pay extra for a nobrainer feature.

More than 3 Years have passed and you haven’t given us this important feature... Why?
Glad to see I'm not the only one looking for this. Anyone have a workaround? Has anyone tried using multiple above-the-fold-sized artboards stacked and linked?

Please include the anchor links feature in the next update. I Love XD but is falling behind competition for the lack of this very essential feature. This should be a no-brainer for a company like Adobe.
Anchor links would be a great feature to have, with a difference (I'd remove any auto animate from the mix and just focus on scrolling).
Scenarios in which it might be needed ✅:
-One-page website mockups
-In-app scroll (go to map)
On the prototype tab:
1. Trigger: Tap
2. Add interaction
3. Pick action type: Scroll
4. Destination: select element.
At this point, other artboards would be grayed out (disabled) and then the designer would need to drag the flow arrow or simply click on the destination element.
Thank you for reading 😎
This has to be implemented soon.
3 years and we're still waiting.
I can't believe this still doesnt exist 🙄
Anchors and bullets :) yes please...

There are a couple of key missing features that should be somewhat embarrassing. Formatting for bulleted lists and anchor tags are among those features.

This is a very important feature for prototyping single-page designs. Please develop this :)
Absolutely dissapointing and annoying that this feature does not exist yet. Need it NOW!

Anchor links would be amazing!
Yep, I'll join the crowd on this one. Would be great :-)
