Better Previous Artboard Logic / Control

Please add a blacklist / whitelist option to the "Previous Artboard" links.

The problem: "Previous Artboard" logic is linear, which only works for specific use cases.

Example: From a "Parent" page, user clicks a link to a subpage that has tabs. They click the tabs on the subpage a couple times, and now want to use a back button that takes them back to the "Parent". Currently, "Previous Artboard" will take them back through all the tabs they clicked on, before finally getting back to the "Parent".

Solution: The designer can blacklist or whitelist a group of Artboards, and/or single Artboards.

Example 1: They would blacklist all the tab pages, so the first Artboard XD sees in the "previous Artboard history" would be the "Parent" page.

Example 2: The designer could tag/group each hierarchy level of the product they're designing, and use those as a whitelist for back buttons, making sure the back button goes up one level in the hierarchy, rather than following a linear history.

A workaround is to just not use "Previous Artboard" at all, and just link to the parent directly. The problem is, this fails when there are multiple variations of the "Parent".
