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.
Being able to create a flow like Anita Hall's first example link would be incredibly important to me. Until XD, I was using mainly Axure, which it great for wireframing through to prototyping. It is also very usable for flows and user journeys, whether in a flow diagram format, or including wireframe snapshots designed within the program. It does a lot, but is actually quite bogged down with functionality.
However, for design, the usability and speed of XD is fantastic. I hope it doesn't become bloated in the same way. But, certainly being able to create user journeys, particularly using snapshots of the designs created in the design mode, would be great. Right now, I copy and paste the designs from XD into user journeys in Axure.

Definitely smaply or uxpressia should be checked out.

Adobe Muse's site map model could be a first attempt.

Yes, would be great to have an mind map tool within XD! Voted!
Thanks for getting back to me. Could you please link me to the story/user voice request for information architecture flow? This is because when I design the information architecture flow, I'll have lines, relations, arrows, and notes, etc. on the diagram - usually it will end up a graph like this:
"There’s also a story already for showing all available screens to navigate to in a prototype." Do you mean when you share in the Library or when you preview in Adobe XD Mobile app? I am not sure what you mean.
Hi - Thanks for your reply. If it can be in the shared prototype mode, then that'll be wonderful too. I was thinking to have a mode to display the pages similar to this: http://www.markdubois.info/weblog/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/InitialSiteMap.png
I know we can link a button or a page to another page. Can we have a view that's similar to a view in Adobe Muse where you can see all pages in sitemap mode.

I don't really support an "Auto mode" but would like better diagramming tools such as drawing arrows from space to share, supporting labels, line weight various line end connectors, circles, square, arrow, and also smart enough to support Line Hop.
