New mode: IA Flow

Simple view to map out the IA (Information architecture), decided feature requests, page relationships, etc. before designing.

This would keep all design blueprints in one system instead of heading out to ___(Mind map or flowchart app of choice)__ to stay on track. Especially when working on small teams.

May reflect a similar (though severely simplified) view of Prototype mode.

    Seconding the idea below of an "IA" tab that would go alongside "Design" and Prototype" tabs. Would allow us to create an IA diagram for the overall product. Flow diagrams are actually something slightly different - they articulate how a user steps through a process. The terms are being used somewhat interchangeably in this feature request but they are actually quite different.

    Would love if the IA tool supports swimlanes, containers and default flow symbols

    The IA mode should establish 'artboards' for each state - this would allow designers to organize animations or 'states' for pages inside of separate artboards, each page on the IA would create a separate artboard.

    Yes, this would be a huge value add for UX professionals. In particular, allow us to use connectors between shapes that stay connected when the connect shapes are moved.

    Support IA Tool like Overflow to be integrated withing discovery phase in ux process if it could be shared with Product managers and whole teams

    This would be incredible for sitemaps and user flows. Ideally similar to how Omnigraffle does it.

    Can't design great experience (UX & UI) without context of how things flow from screen to screen.

    Please add support for userflow / wireflow / flowchart symbols & connecting paths

    It would be great to have an ability to export wireframe flow in some sort of document, the .pdf would be an ideal choice! For now, I have to create a wireframe prototype in Adobe XD, export all screens, import them to Adobe Illustrator and then make connections myself to get a full resolution wireframe sheet map. While working with big corporations it is essential to prepare such kind of document. Big companies require such document for later development of an app. It's useful for planning development resources, back-end and other processes. It would be great if we could just export prototype as .pdf with all connections. Thank you guys!
