Show all available screens to navigate in shared prototype (map / overview of all artboards)
I would like for there to be a way to display all available screens in the prototype. Currently the web view is good for presenting but not good for users who are not clear on what the flow is. Providing a way to jump around these screens would be incredibly helpful.
Updating this thread as we have delivered thumbnail view of all artboards in Grid View.

Having a grid-based set of navigation in the browser window for navigating the shared comp would make a HUGE efficiency impact. I agree with others who have suggested here that InVision has solved this problem nicely, and would love to see something similar in XD's next update.

+1 Yes, yes, yes to this feature / improvement! Very badly needed!!!
We use XD with Jira and every member of our team in the entire workflow / pipeline needs to be able to view a specific page without having to preview one-by-one in a linear fashion.
We name our files in ways that are lexically sorted so having them in a preview grid that is sorted by name is imperative for us.

Yes, I need this very badly also. For a workaround, I'm about to hand make an HTML list of all Artboard names and link the name to the prototype page URL.
The xd sharing option is generally awesome except when you have loads of individual pages.
We're working with a remote designer with a very slow internet connection. uploading the file takes more than 2 hours for her (200MBs).
When we preview the 66 pages on adobe cloud, we have to go one by one, there is no way to preview all the pages and this becomes incredibly painful.
If there was a way to preview the pages && their titles, that would make life so much easier. Ex. in attachment.
To get around this problem, I've gone so far as to build my own map of all the screens that I put in a separate screen I call "Choose your adventure". I also put a button on each prototype screen that lets the user return to my custom mockup menu.
Yea that is the only reason I use UXPin

This is the only reason I use inVision instead of XD. I like XD more than inVision, but this feature is so important and we use it often with our clients.
I have to stick with inVision until this is added to XD.

I really need this feature to present my projects to my clients. Otherwise I have to use InVision
I think this is already possible. Today I saw it in my team at least. Please check again.

Allow people with the sharing link to zoom out to an artboard view. This makes it useful for clients to see groupings of pages, ad any other context from how you have your dartboard organized.
it also allows people with the shared link to see how many pages total are in the artboard
Something like this would be nice
I agree this is frustrating that you can't see all pages and can't easily jump to page you want to show. I hope Adobe take Invision App model.. They have figured it out to the science.
Ability to view all artboards in the prototype so you can skip to a page rather than having to navigate through the flow every time. If there are a large amount of artboards this is very frustrating as the only other way to find a artboard you want is to skip through each screen
Add feature to show all screens into web visualization, where you can select the screen you wanna go to.
See all screens helps in a demo meeting, it helps you go to a specific screen without having to keep tapping right or left. Make things faster and easier.

Add a view map - that is a collection of all pages - into shared web prototype.
Currently it's a wee hard to navigate into a certain view without having to navigate through the app proto.
It would make sense to be able to open this view map from the bottom of the screen, where Homy button and page navigation currently is.

This needs to be implemented! My clients are always asking how to navigate through them without having to click on the bottom small arrows.

Totally agree, would be great to have some form of in-page nav to enable viewers to see what artboards are available and jump straight to one. Would also like the non-full screen version to show the Artboard title on the page.
It would make sense too to show all art boards not just the ones that have been wired up. I'm more likely to get approval with static comps internally before taking the time to make a prototype for stakeholder reviews.

My team wants to go directly to certain slides without having to click through the prototype to find a particular artboard. A "light table" view of the pages would make it easier to find the pages to view, and from which to continue using the prototype.
Bryan Larson commented
Other prototyping tools like Axure force the designer to build their pages in a tree structure, and display that tree to the viewer when shared online. Each page also has it's own URL. The feature is very helpful if a prototype contains large quantities of pages, has multiple unrelated workflows, or when the designer wants to direct a viewer to a specific page within the tree.
Personally, I prefer the "artboard" approach currently used in XD's "design" mode better than most competitors, but the online viewing mode would greatly benefit from this feature.
