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.
WIth August release of Adobe XD, we have now added the ability to define ‘Multiple Flows’ on your canvas, switch between them in Share mode, and also choose to publish or share out links from your flows!
You can also choose to share out just a single artboard on your canvas, by setting it as ‘Home’ artboard and not having any connection wires to/from it.

I highly encourage you to install the latest version of Adobe XD, and give this feature a try!
We would love to hear your feedback and improve upon it.
I would like to be able to share a single art board with developers without having to link it to another art board to unlock this feature. Often times I am having to duplicate an art board with exactly the same content and link it together in prototype mode simply to be able to publish design specs. It would be great if I could just share this single art board without requiring an "interaction".
Just add a WIP or Ready for Export to each Artboard and that's it!

Hello And Greetings,
I want a feature in Adobe XD where I can share Prototype of Selected Artboards from the file for example if i have 7 Artboards in the file but I want to create and share prototype for only 3 of them, so that user can only see 3 image of them in prototype view mode and the rest of images/artboards should not show up there. Something like I can disable artboards in Prototype Mode so it will not show up in Prototype vie Mode because I have disabled them for Users. Otherwise I will have to create a new file and keep the artboards only that I want to share but In future I might need those artboards which I am not sharing Now. It will be a greate feature If I can disable the Artboards in prototype/Sharing for Development Mode
I think for Adobe sharing means just sharing finished layout with prototype functions (clickable). But there's a workflow before the prototype. It's the layout-mode. To agree the design with the stakeholders. And for that I don't want to laborious wire Home-Artboard with others and revise this a lot of times. I just want to easily select few artboards out of dozens variants. After a feedback I have to rearrange my artboards to do a new designlind, but I'd like (and I have to) keep my variants for my further design-work. SO sometimes I have 50 Artboards and like to share just 5–10
This should work like the Craft-Plugin (upload to Invision) for Sketch.
Is there a way to publish only selected arboards without linking the in prototype mode? This would be a very helpful feature.

At the moment all the art boards in the prototype are in the developer preview. I would like to customise what is shown in each.
For example, I have many artboards with micro interactions in my prototype that I don't want in the developer preview.

after creating 10 Art Boards, Approved 3 Art Board out of 10. I need to share only 3 Art Board for Developer, but there is sharing all Art board it is possible can i share only 3 art boards not all art boards
This is extremely missing. I'd like to choose specific artboards and share them with an individual name. After this I'd like to sort and rearrange them in the backend. The backend has to be sorted by client names. This client names I can give authority to specific team members. If I'd like to overwrite a specific accumulation of dartboards I select my artboards and select the name of the artboards. This will update the link and the team-members will get an E-Mail that the dartboards are updated.
Need this, don't want to delete working designs that aren't finished but also don't want to share them yet.
Very much needed. Sharing for development is mostly for dev guidelines, and less for the prototype. You want to be able to demonstrate independent artboards for different flows and guidelines for dev. Missing this feature currently force me to use zeplin for dev sharing.
I'd love to see this too.
This would go great along with the notes to share with team. "Add UX Notes mode (to Design and Prototype)"
Rather than having to link arboards together to share in development mode it would be awesome to just select all artboards I want to share.

As a responsive website UX Designer this would be extremely helpful as a communication tool for me. My .xd project files often consist of 100's of artboards for the entire site. Sharing 4 or 5 of those artboards when I'm working on a particular enhancement would help greatly. I do not like having to rely on using the prototyping tools to achieve this (as I'll just want to review quickly with a team member first).
Export Art Boards AS IS, without having to link prototyping -- more design spec flat for client holistic review.

So here is the case: I have 3 Artboards, 1 Homepage and other 2 are Work-in-progress designs.. Here I am not linking anything for interactive prototypes but I am only sharing the Homepage for Review.
The issue is, if Arrow Keys are used to Navigate, I am also seeing the WIP files which I dont like to share.
Hence a feature to exclude any static artboard from being published will be a great fix.
Here is my conversation with Howard from @Adobe and he votes my idea too.
Would like to be able to export information that is not within artboards too. Like text or descriptions, screenshots and pictures, lines. I sometimes use these to explain to developers in a more pedagogical way what actions trigger what. Or if I want to share my research and design process with someone, I today can't unless I start creating artboards behind all of my elements in the file. Find it really crazy that I don't have the option of just exporting and showing EVERYTHING that I have in my file. Have to re-create and make duplicates and just such today cause I can't get it all in a link to share with Xd. Really to bad. Would help tremendously to be able to control it myself. (same thing with moving objects within the file honestly. Would like to move things outside of the artboards together with the artboards)

This is crucial, because in the design process I create some alternative designs for particular page. I want to share with developers just the final one but I still want to keep the alternative variants in the file. Now I have to delete them or create some backup file which is very anoying. Also, I don't want to create a prototype just for this purpose (prototype and spec for development should be completely separate for various reasons).
