Scrollable action to another artboard anchor
I'm hoping this idea is just an add on from the current Scroll action.
At the moment you can create a button etc and link it to a certain area on your artboard. It then automatically scrolls to that area once clicked.
My idea is to have this same feature, but with an option to jump and scroll to a specific area on another artboard.
It will make the user journey so much better when using things like quick links etc

XD needs to be able to prototype interactions like this that have existed since the dawn of the web before it starts trying to add any whizzy new features. This is basic stuff, and it boggles my mind that I can't prototype something as simple as a link to an anchor on a different web page.
Yep. Really unsure why you can't anchor between different artboards. Seems like a very basic function for a dedicated prototyping tool.
It would be helpful to be able to specify an offset for where pages load.
Preserve Scroll Position isn't enough when the pages you're switching between have different lengths.
This feature could be added as an option under Preserve Scroll Position.

I'm really surprised this isn't available. I've been trying to figure it out, only to realize that it isn't actually possible. It's really frustrating to tell people each time you are showing them the prototype, Oh don't worry about that, it will go to this spot on this page, I just can't do that with my software. Managers are starting to question if I need to be using another "industry standard" option.
Very frustrating you cant link to a part of another page. I've created a one page site which has a hambuger menu which when clicks launches an overlay. Perfect. But then I want to click on a menu item and link to a section on the previous page. Seems like an obvious thing to be able to do. Seems not.
Please add this! This probably enhances the flexibility of the "Scroll To" interaction. We need this for some hyperlink keywords, terms, and conditions, etc. I am sure that this feature would be useful.
We currently can't demo this by auto-animate too, because "Scroll To" needs a trigger, and auto-animate didn't have a scroll position interaction. Therefore, we need Adobe to help update this feature.
Please add this !

It would be useful to be able to link objects or components of another page.
There could be two ways to do this.
Once the landing page has been selected, the user could choose the level and then an offset.
Or once the target page is selected, there may be an offset set by default to 0, and the user may change this value.
I hope I was clear.
Yes! This is a basic HTML element, so to have that functionality in XD for prototyping would be perfect. Came here hoping to find a solution of how to do this.

A option to link to an object on a different artboard would be greatly appreciated.
Let´s say I am trying to link to a contacts form that is on the buttom of the homepage. I can linke to the homepage, but not to the contact form. This seems like a reasonable feature and I would think that it is easy to implement.
It would make a lot easier.
Thank you for your consideration.
Please add — this would be a game-changer!

yes, I really need this function badly too!
Please add!! I need tis function so badly to work.

Das wäre super. Habe auch gerade danach gesucht. Die Möglichkeit von einem Link einer Seite zu einer anderen Stelle einer anderen Seite zu springen fehlt noch. Sollte unbedingt ergänzt werden.
That would be great. I was just looking for it. The ability to jump from a link on one page to another point on another page is still missing. Should definitely be added.
Yes please add this! It would be so wonderful to be able to set up scroll anchor points between different screens!

I was wrestling with similar while looking for a very common interaction pattern on mobile apps. When user taps a button going to next screen (art-board) – BACK button (on the next artboard) should return to the previous art-board at the previously scrolled position. XD developers please pay attention to this!

I have a Fixed Position Navigation. On tap, I want the link to Auto-Animate to a different color and Scroll To a section on the page. Currently, Scroll To is "Type" option. If this was moved to the Action section, then I could use Auto-Animate along with the Scroll To option.
Why can I link an artboard to another and still see the "scroll to" option. This was deceptive for me once I found out the link was forcibly broken and allowed only scrolling of the screen I was linking from and NOT to as well. This is a massive need for having an effective navigational flow for the user. Can you please complete this unfinished request? We should be able to prototype using the "scroll to" function for any artboards we link to as well.
Ho yes, please add this !
