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.
We’re planning to support pages in XD. Stay tuned!
I'm thinking to move to Figma, I need this feature, please! I have more than 10 files, its boring to find and share with devs.
just had to move from Figma to XD because of company policy, cant believe this doesnt exist is like going back 10 years! Its going to be a pain to maintain various stages of project in one canvas.
This is a huge pain point and has caused my team to discuss abandoning for a different prototyping tool. I've been using XD for over a year and have enjoyed using, but every time there's a feature release I'm on the edge of my seat waiting for this feature, and it's such a let down to see that this is not a higher priority.
And infinite canvas! Why why why is there not an infinite canvas!!
How can that be that other feature requests like animation are upvoted thousand of times and Multiple Pages, which is a basic feature, is not prioritized? I wonder how other designers work around that issue...
Please add it!
when adobe chose to ignore a basic feature for years and even if it is also in feature requests for years

yes please implement this already! Create a new XD and name it, save it in the right folder just to separate drafts from finals? Like cmon already Adobe, how is this workflow efficient?
This is a pretty big omission from Adobe. One of the main reasons I am considering switching to Figma as it's becoming so time consuming organising different variants, moodboard, wireframes etc in different files which is made worse when XD has no tabs functionality.

It's kind of impossible to organize a big project at the moment. This feature would help so much and would save time and effort. I would create pages for the various features or sub-projects in a project, have one for components, one for a styleguide, and if I could then also share this pages with the developer that would be awesome.
I'm waiting for this feature since the beginning and I really like how Adobe XD has developed - but I can imagine that it's one of the features why Designer use other applications - or think about switching.
Are there plans to implement this feature request in the future?

Could we get a response from adobe on whether or not this feature is planned or a version of this feature?

It has been almost four years now and this is still a missing feature. It can be found in Sketch, which is why I favor it instead of XD when ever I can work solely on my Mac for a project. It should be simple to add Layers to which you can create or move Artboards. It makes organizing your project so much simpler and should be rather simple.
I am new to UX design so I am learning both XD and Sketch right now. This (so far) seems like the biggest item that makes Sketch more versatile. I, personally, like to keep files compact and efficient so being able to toggle between versions (pages) within one document seems like a must-have item.

Another vote for multiple pages. Various reasons I'm not making the switch to XD is this, and more flexibility within components for vertical rescaling. Seems XD is set up for very 'perfect' use cases where all content is a fixed height. It's not easy to achieve in Sketch, but its far more flexible than XD at the moment.

Especially when uploading documents as a link, I need separation between different flows. Simply uploading the whole thing is not working out without seperation between the different areas. And pages would be the most efficient way.

Come on Adobe, this is a pretty basic requirement if someone is to work on a large project with many artboards without going insane.
Copied from another related thread because these features are connected in my mind:
This is a huge thing that is missing. We have large Sketch files that we've imported to XD with many, many artboards including versions-in-progress and I do NOT want all of them published to the share link. Right now my workaround is to export the drafts for review and send them as a JPG which sucks because that's the whole reason we were trying to use XD in the first place. A few of these cloud/sharing features aren't practical with the constraints as set up so even though in theory XD is a better choice, it's becoming more work to try to make it functional for our use cases. And now, it's sharing ALL the screens which is even more infuriating since I haven't created any flows at all! Obviously there are some cases where I'd want to share all the screens but I'd like the option.
Would like to see:
- ability to separate "flows" and share each flow individually without having to create a new XD document.
- ability to tell XD which screens I want included in the prototype and to maybe toggle "share all" as well

This needs to happen...ideally I want to make the full switch from Sketch to XD but this lack of basic feature is the reason I haven't. Please can you make a priority!!!
Absolute priority. We were working in XD for a couple of years, but will switch to Sketch for all our future projects, after having huge problems maintaining and updating UI for a large project, over multiple files. Not having way to group and organize artboards into pages makes a hot mess and caused us to lose a lot of time.
Please make this a priority in your roadmap. Not having pages requires multiple files and makes workflow among teams very messy.

This feature is a must-have it is so difficult to maintain multiple iteration files separately. It makes so much chaos within the team. Please make this feature available.
