    When testing prototypes with end users we have a limitation in that we can't allow them to input text and it breaks the illusion when they have to, for example, tap a search box which will immediately populate or hyperlink to another screen. It would be great to be able to allow them to enter values (e.g. string, date, check box, radio group, toggle). This is particularly important when doing A-B testing between a working website and a prototype - it breaks up the user flow and forces the observer to step in to explain. It can also affect the interaction of the user as it can become confusing and unexpected, and it may colour their feedback if they can clearly tell which is the prototype and which is the original. In Proto.io it is possible to enter data which makes it very compelling and it is currently appealing as an alternative to Xd.

    Another user has proposed a similar feature where alternative actions occur based upon data entered - whilst this would be nice it seems pretty complex and perhaps more than is necessary in the first instance. Perhaps a simpler model would be to allow a component to inherit the data value of another component, so that data entered on the first artboard is replicated on the second - these components would effectively be tied in terms of data but would be represented very differently visually.

    Maybe an approach for this could be:

    Phase 1 - add a component library which allows for data entry
    Phase 2 - allow for captured data to be tied to a elements across other artboards (e.g. I login with a user name and this can then be displayed on a subsequent screen, or a search string can be left in the search box on a subsequent artboard).
    Phase 3 - allow for conditional links between artboards based on selections
