Link to external URLs
Link a button that can link like a hyperlink to another web page like youtube or my own Web Page
Hi All! Check out today's update of XD. It is version 47 and includes the ability to make any object a hyperlink. To use hyperlinks:
1. Go to Prototype mode
2. Select an object and add an interaction.
3. Choose a trigger like Tap.
4. Choose the action Hyperlink.
5. Add a destination URL.
I'd love to see this happen!

+1. Really surprised it is not a feature yet (rather like much better table support).
Dear Adobe XD - Team; A Design Software without external connecting points ist like Robinson Crouse on his Iland. I know there are many issues, planing, running against walls "behind the scenes". But strictly forward, a "stand alone" an "looks like great" cannot be possible in this decade of interactive movements. I hope you will be joining us in the future with your experience and solutions at this platform. Best wishes from Austria, yours Bert

Come on Adobe, this is useless, we could have built a new piece of software in the 2years we have been waiting!
Please add this feature. it's so basic & often needed!
I don't use XD as much, simply because this feature hasn't been implemented!
It's an easy fix!
WE. NEED. THIS!
Link to external URLs & Embed! Please provide, it is important for us!

Can't understand why such a basic feature still not implemented !
I maintain mockups in html/css that call on xd embeds for more complicated parts of the UI. Need to be able to link out to illustrate help, contact, go to a web page and transition to other features for a full experience. Need more flexibility.

Looks like this request was made in 2016. Is there any solution yet?
I just made a project where this is REALLY needed. I thought that of course XD could do that...
It would be useful if you enable links in the prototype. For instance, take a look at this prototype (the first slide):
Links are unclickable or untappable. It’s something so native to the Internet and contrary to what everyone expects from an online resource.
It would also be useful if we can embed videos that way. Take a look at this prototype (click or tap on the first slide; go to Sign In; click or tap on the User Name field; click or tap on the keyboard; click or tap on the Sign In button; go to Health Session; click or tap on the Enter your glucose level field; click or tap on the keyboard; click or tap on the Submit button; click or tap on the Learn more button; go to Treatment; click or tap Watch video):
If this video was enabled, it would bring us closer to the final app version. Something that we can use more reliably for user testing.

+1 Nearly 2 years under review? Really?

I need to be able to link with external webpages since my website has other programs on the server which run at different links than the website.com
If I would be able to do that, it'd be grand. Thanks.

Yes, this would actually be really really useful. We've been doing some user testing on early-stage, super low-fidelity prototypes using the share link from XD, and we often run into situations where we want to link the user to test an external place.
I would love this feature, mainly because my clients keep asking, "Is this button/link/element going to link to that thing we agreed it would?", to which I keep having to reply, "Yes, it will - my tool just doesn't have that feature. I'm thinking of switching to Mac so I can use Sketch which does." Come on, guys!
Why on earth are you not putting more energy into making Adobe XD useful enough to warrant using?
No Swipe animation creation?
No Web URL linking
No Video embed?
It’s like da moment?
it would be great to add a hyperlink or something else like the website of https://www.appmakr.com/machine/... It would be so easy i hope you guys can fix this
Please add this.
