Re-enable the feature to add your own icon to Prototypes
In the Beta vesion of XD there used to be a feature to add an icon (client logo etc.) to the Prototypes, so if you saved it to your homescreen (iOS) the icon would act as the favicon/home screen icon. This seems to have been dissabled in the official release, can we have it back as it was very useful. Ironically my old prototypes still have the icon in them and I no longer have any way of updating/removing them

Now I have no way to update or remove icons that already exist in my documents. Starting with old files as a base means my current prototypes have the wrong client icon!
You may not have been happy with the current workflow but removing it altogether made things worse. Please reinstate it!
:) Sorry to have removed this. We will bring it back, but, found that it was hardly ever used, yet, it took up almost half of our publish dialog. We were adding options to this screen, so, we wanted to simplify. Getting a thumbnail into a prototype was honestly a bit painful (dragging one in). We plan on making this workflow better by allowing you to select an artboard or at least use a file picker. So, we took this away until we get to the better workflow.
We will bring it back at some point. Code hasn't been deleted!
Bring back the Prototype thumbnail!

I cant change icon app for prototype!
Bring back the prototype app icon feature, the 'drag and drop' an image to make it the prototypes app icon.
Super useful and was a real bummer when I saw it gone in the recent update.
In previous versions of XD, users had the option of adding a photo to a published prototype. In the most recent update, that feature was removed.
Please add it back.
It's a seemingly inconsequential feature, but when utilized properly, it can be the icing on the cake.
In part, I utilize xd to create basic portfolio microsites, that I share with potential employers and clients, and I always put my headshot as the profile photo for the prototype. Everyone I've ever shared a link with has mentioned how unique they thought it was to have my headshot appear as the favicon on their desktop browser, and whenever they where using a web browser on there phone. It kept me at the top of their minds, and has lead to more than one follow up interview, and job offer.
So please add it back!
