Multiple pages (separate sets of artboards)
Sometimes, for 1 design project we need to make several options and to do so currently we need to create new files every time and name them with versions. So I think it would be really cool if we can create multiple designs within the same file and then be able to have multiple prototype links also based on different options, that would organize stuff and make it much easier.
its needed please ;)
I had finally decided to move to XD and give a chance after the burnout with the sketchy Sketch, but really? Is that real that we can't create Pages yet? With a large project where we MUST organize layouts by pages, there's not a single chance to start using XD without this. Wake up Adobe, don't let users slip out of your app for such a little.
I was thinking to switch to XD, but because they don't have "pages" like Sketch or Figma, I had chosen to go with Figma. I have very large app projects, and just a canvas is not a option for me at all.
Hope you'll fix this soon
This is a very important feature for me. Will it be coming anytime soon?
Adobe team are you sleeping? You know we need this. At least give us the reason why we don't have it yet? Or if you don't agree that it will indeed be a helpful feature for us?

Aside from being able to have multiple pages for project organization, this would be a killer feature for atomic design. Have one template document with separate pages for Styles, Icons, Components, Patterns, Panels, and Pages. Then we could use linked symbols to make updates to, say, components and have it reflected on the panels page.

Sketch and InVision Studio has had this out of the gate.

Please add Pages option like the sketch

I Think it would be helpful especially for bigger projects to run separated page documents in separate tabs to keep a better clarity of the hall project.
So i am currently working on apps mostly...and have to recreate or copy&paste already existing symbols. Which sometimes gets to the point where i have the same symbol twice or even a dozen of times. Updating the symbols is a real pain in the ass this way. Not to mention the fact that you can end up using multiple components for the same functionality (yeah, i am clumsy, but i happens tho') . Handover process for dev would be easier as well, somehow everyone has everything in on big file :) all happy ppl
XD has only the concept of Art boards and not pages. So if you are doing a big website and need to create multiple versions of the same home page and menu structure , you need to create two different files and prototype.
Well, can’t help think ‘ what if we had ‘Pages’ and art boards on each page which could be prototyped separately, all in a single file’.
Saves time and effort !a

The XD's evolution is too slow. 2 years that we requesting it and nothing... bugs and more bugs for Windows and nothing evolves... :(
MUST HAVE. Check out the way Sketch does it. "Multiple Pages" is essential for organization!
YES! We need this!!
Really a must one , would make adobe XD much more flexible .. !
Really need this too!
The engineering team I work with is comfortable and used to opening up XD files and looking at my designs; however, it’s up to me to clearly label production level / exploratory / archived designs within the file. I take a good chunk of time to reorganize all my artboards with section titles (since I can’t move artboards & copy simultaneously) every time I hand off to eng.
If I had the ability to use pages, I could name those pages and easily move artboards, and the team wouldn’t see all of my artboards in one place and possibly get confused.
The only other way to handle this is to duplicate the XD file and “clean it up” before sending it to eng, but we all know that designs tend to evolve even after being handed off so we’ll end up with weird duplicates and outdated designs quickly.

When it comes to pages and layers organizing, Sketch has it going on. I happen to like being able to have a page that has multiple artboards on it, then another page with a different set of multiple art boards. It allows me to organize my designs. For example, I like to be able to put today's designs on one page, then concepts 1 on another, 2 on another, 3 on another, etc...
I also want to be able to have one big xd file that has multiple pages... each page representing a section of my app.
Pages, man! Pages!!! This is why I've been choosing Sketch over XD. I have both, but because of Pages I prefer sketch!

It would be great to switch between notes/wireframes area to a high fidelity canavs!
- I would expend the prototype page to respect whatever "Canvas" (or Page) you are currently on
- Would need to think through how the new design specs interacts with this added canvas layer
