Link to separate xd documents
Ability to link to different XD documents, or create a 'project' folder that would let different features of a project to be put into separate XD documents.
Why is this valuable:
With separate pages being in separate documents, but still linked into a single prototype, different owners could collaborate on a single experience and work together to create a single experience. Linking to an XD doc would open the page at the prototype home screen.
The ability to verify links are XD links (currently available I believe).
Project team members and collaborators.
External links in Prototype Mode
Project Assets and Styles
PS: I thought this feature was already requested - apologies if I missed it - I did look I promise

+1 for this.

Here's another vote for this. Being able to link to other XD files would be invaluable for my work flow.

This feature would be very nice to have. I've designed a portal that links to several web apps for my company. Right now each web app including the portal has it's own xd file. I would love to be able to link from my portal prototype to the individual app prototypes and back. Each web app is part of a different team so it would be hard and quite a large XD file to have all this under one xd file.
I total agree with this input. It would be realy helpful in some situations (huge projects with giant dokument siize) to separate one projekt in different files and conect them in one prototype.
Link an element from one XD file to another (Home) artboard on a separate XD file. That way, we can link complex workflows without needing a giant size file. This would also make collaboration a bit easier instead of having numerous editors within one page, working on separate pieces of the doc. Adobe InDesign already does something similar with linked documents
Wanted to link XD file to another XD file linking. Interlinking between two or more files needed.
Link and join up multiple files
My canvas can not hold all the screens and instances. I need to separate out a section of my projects as they have over 200 screens. I would love to work on sections of the software outside of the MVP prototype that my team is developing. Allowing for me to have the whole MVP for PMs to share with Stakeholders, be working on design interactions of a section only allowing some screens for the MVP and blocking others, while team A can see test design A,B,C,D. Original MVP can then have the prototype link to the winning variation once tested. Keeping all screens, sections, and variations together but controlling the user groups to display to.
I share a prototype to help you understand the multi-link I need.
When I asked designers around me, I was told that I wanted it as soon as possible.
I want a function that allows multiple XD files to work together. This is a viewpoint for a "system" in which multiple products operate in conjunction.
Necessary for designing the linkage between a smartphone and a watch.
This perspective should become very important in a few years.
It is not that multiple users operate XD at the same time.
