Choose which artboards to share (share link to prototype/design spec subset / exclude some artboards when sharing)
Because we are often working with multiple dev teams on a single project it would be great to be able to select a specific path of actions and share them as a link. Example: share just the contact flow or the shopping cart flow.
The benefit of being able to see all screens and link to them is great. Being able to see and share a subset as well would be awesome. We could focus on just sharing that specific interaction and the team it is being sent to wouldn't have to go through everything just to see the UX of a single section.
I need it asap too!!!!!!
I need this asap!!
Yeah it is ridiculous, no interaction no sharing...

Yes please make this feature! There used to be a way for me to publish my design system out to my developer and show all of the artboards by simply not prototyping any screens together. Please bring that back or make it so we can choose which screens to share, especially a Share All Screens button.
When you are wanting to get the ball rolling with a website build, it is not very practical when you can't share the assets, colours etc without having to duplicate your artboards and make interactions.
It shouldn't have to be a requirement to either prototype every single artboard, or to not touch the feature at all, in order to successfully get ALL artboards in the XD document to populate in the developer link/mode.
I've spent hours within the current year dealing with this flaw. You want to use the prototyping features to make client presentation a breeze, only to discover that most of your artboards/designs aren't available to you developer when you've created a link for them to pull assets and information from, or, you're unable to create the developer link what so ever.

Agreed, now it's getting even more ridiculous, no interaction no sharing? Why is that? A single page design can never be shared, even for developing?
agree, feature is needed asap

Currently you have to link screens in a prototype to be able to publicly share screens. It would be nice if there was an option to share specific screens or include all. Not everything we do requires a prototype, but would still like the ability to gather feedback or provide redlines for developers. Basically I want to move away from Sketch and InVision workflow and move completely to XD :)
And why does link sharing have a PREMIUM badge?
Yeah like, what about this instance? I made a doc with no prototyping, it's just assets and ref layouts...
In the Design System Doc, I now have to add navigation buttons to allow developers to view either the typefaces or icons or buttons. Is that what I am supposed to do?
This feature needs to get fixed or expanded upon ASAP please because now I have to wire stuff that doesn't need wiring and remake links because of it. I am working in a production environment. You update both help and screw with me.
You are aware that people are using this software in a production environment, right?
We need more options on the sharing panel or an expanded system on the templates.
AND why does the Custom template not allow one to customise the link in an advanced manner? One can't even specify that the assets should be downloadable. Defuq?
Please can we get a means of setting wich artboards to share per share-link; or a share all artboards switch.
I'm in a stage where I need to share a doc with my team for review, no prototyping is needed right now. YET, now I have to set up wires so that the sharing feature can share all artboards.
The wires I'm setting up now will be broken because I don't know if the current look is edifiable.
I do like the new sharing system, it's great but the artboards being greyed out becasue they don't have wires on them is a bit more than eroneous in my opinion. Why not have a setting for artboard exclussion when you are setting up a Design Review link? That way you can keep the Design Language System in the doc but exclude it.

I work with XD not just for workflow, but to try options of the same page and get feedback from the client. When I go to share for review now, it only selects the first page and all others are grayed out. I'm not able to change this unless I prototype them together, which is a waste of time on my end.
I think for this use case, and just in general, it would be good for users to have more control over what boards are included or not included in the review.

Be able to create a client specific viewing experience where you can organize and select which boards you want to share with said client.

Export Dev or Review Selected Artboards Please! This would be a game-changer for organization.
When exporting for review all dartboards auto upload. But many times I only want a single artboard to upload.
Solution that Adobe has to make:
Select the artboards you want > export
Nothing selected > upload all

Currently using a mix of Zeplin and Xd for handovers.
Would be great if we could select the artboards we want to share for development.
I would like to be able to select which artboards I want to upload when I share for review. Since I use my files as working documents, they often have pages that I don't want a client to see. But when I upload for review, they are able to tab through all the pages, even if they are not linked. By doing so, some of my clients have stumbled upon unfinished pages or symbol pages. This is really not a professional experience for them, so as it is, I have to save a new file and delete all pages that I don't want to be seen.
This! We're still using Zeplin as a communication platform to the dev teams, being able to make separate flows from a single document would be an awesome way to only use XD!
Also being able to group certain art boards in the development handoff overview would be great
