Multiple pages (separate sets of artboards)
Sometimes, for 1 design project we need to make several options and to do so currently we need to create new files every time and name them with versions. So I think it would be really cool if we can create multiple designs within the same file and then be able to have multiple prototype links also based on different options, that would organize stuff and make it much easier.
We’re planning to support pages in XD. Stay tuned!
Elaine, in what century this industry-standard feature is planned to be released?
Yes, pretty please! Sketch has this feauture for many years now (:

It's been 5 years, and I'm switching to Figma

It would be amazing to add a "Pages" and "Tabs" option to Adobe XD.
Personally, the pages allow me to keep everything in one place while separating them categorically.
1- Low Fidelity Wireframes
2- Low Fidelity Prototypes
3- High Fidelity Wireframes
4- High Fidelity Prototypes
This makes it easier to access and sort my files and artboards.
Currently, the files open in different windows and keeping track of them is kinda tough. You have to alt-tab or like go-to window and select the file. Rather, it'll be much more siompler if we could just have tabs.
Overall, this will lead to a much better experience :))))
If you want to 'win' Sketch customers then simply pick up your pace. XD is OK for web design, but it just lacks certain key elements for product design and large and complex systems. Pages or grouping of artboards is a CRUCIAL feature for digital product design. The way XD manages components is also quite a disaster.

It took almost 4 years to put this feature in the backlog. Amazing

When Elaine? it has been 5 years now. It is possible in the next decade?
This is a prime example of why XD has always been a tag-along for Creative Cloud addicts. Adobe creates features for marketing purposes with little regard for the usefulness of the app as a whole. They've been operating that way since print was the dominant medium and little has changed since.
Unless you're on Windows, Sketch + [ InVision and/or Zeplin ] is just better. Usability and common-sense features like Pages, an efficiently organized layers panel, and slick component features are why it wins. It's closed the speed gap too and still has a rocking plug-in community.
I use XD with clients when they request it (usually because some previous failed agency chose it). It's fine, but the lack of pages and other general usability problems make me cringe every time. When I show my clients Sketch they usually make the switch right away.
I really hope Adobe gets their act together and addresses the workflow basics. It would put pressure on Sketch and Figma to get better. But right now, they don't have to work that hard to stay ahead of Adobe.
Figma had it for years... Just saying.
I know people who have switched over to Figma JUST for this.
Come on, Adobe. How hard can it be?
Honestly Adobe, its 2021 and this core feature is still not available? stop adding bells and whistles and sort out the fundamentals. Infinite canvas or multiple pages should have been day 1 features
5 YEARS PASSED ALREADY.
Our artboards (Limited Work Boundry) are full and we have to manage multiple files. what a shame.
Look at Figma, they have unlimited stage area and unlimited pages.
So many of my friends already switched to Figma because of this. I m also "Planning" to switch to figma.
Please add this feature. Thank you!

Hi Elaine, Definitely need this Asap.
Currently, I have to manage multiple documents to organize my production and test bits
Multiple Pastboards in one XD file would help me organize all of my design collateral so that it is easy to manage. Each pasteboard could be added as a folder in the left-hand layers navigation panel (just like Figma). After using this feature, I have found it to be vital in keeping a large design project organized!
