Developers use educated guess work when it comes to making animations based on designs.
Just like normal design specs, we need animation specs to be able to hand off design that contain motion and transition information. a way to clarify animation and eliminate guess work for developers.

Extract/export the information that you see in the top-right hand corner of the design spec view on a share link which lists the information about the transition trigger, animation style, duration and destination. This can be seen by those who have the link but not exported for documentation or implementation purposes. It would be great if XD had the ability to show the screens which have connections/prototype links, and the description of what exactly the transition style is between each screen.
Developers have to currently extract this information manually or guess from what they see in an interactive demo of the prototype. It is quite a labour intensive process to extract information that XD already has.
It would be great to have just a simple file > export feature when clicking on interactive elements/prototype links and have the information about the transition(s) on that artboard / associated to the trigger

Would be nice to get transitions code (maybe also auto-animations) in sharable URL for dev.
