    I have been thinking about this feature a lot lately as my team and I come up with a way to collectively manage our designs/prototypes for multiple very large and complicated enterprise systems. Some of the challenges we are having could be due to our global team presence, but I'm inclined to believe this is more common and not a unique problem:

    As I see it we need:
    1. a way to share multiple XD files across multiple designers who all have first-class permissions to the file - eg. it's not shared by one designer with others - but collectively owned by the team. We currently have around 27 different initiatives with between 1 and 10 XD designs each representing a different feature, application and/or versions which vary in size but average appears to be around 12MB - needly to say there is a lot of content (almost 4GB of XD files alone) and it's growing every day.

    As part of this the open dialog in XD isn't very robust when working with cloud documents. specifically in that users first have to know if they were the original creator of the file or it was shared with them (so they can look for the file in the right place). second, cloud folders are not shown in the open dialog being there isn't really any organization and open simply presents a giant list of prototypes

    2. We need a way for any designer on the team to publish to the same prototype URL - we publish primarily to collaborate with the business and technology stakeholders and since any designer could make a change to the file, any designer should be able to update the prototype without needing to re-share with all of the different stakeholders (e.g. use the same URL) typically our stakeholder group on any given release is around 10-15 people but as our system continues to evolve more and more people get involved and we'd like everyone to be on the same page.

    3. Versioning - There are some interesting new features for versioning - but it seems this is versioning of the file not versioning of the prototypes *admittedly I need to play with this and test more. - the approach seems so far - but the ability to remove (unmark) a version seems too easy and could be accidentally done We will need and want to keep a version history for minimum 3 years (minimum 6 versions and likely more) without risk.

    It might be useful to publish the marked version name with the prototype - today it seems the only way Identify which version of a prototype is being viewed is to change the title at the time of publishing the link.

    It also seems that the version dialog and the published links have no bearing on each other.

    Published prototype link management should be organizable ... what would really be nice it to be able to share a catalog of all published prototypes (and versions) and invited folks could browse the catalog of prototypes. - effectively the manage links page made available to anyone ** with some organization ability (folders)

    4. At first I though the ability to select the type of view setting was kind of neat - but now I'm feeling it's more of a nuance... custom seems to be the solution but custom view setting doesn't allow showing dev spec. instead of the view setting templates I'm now of the opinion that the older approach made more sense - just allow the publisher to select all of the features that want to allow, on/off, with 1 publish (including dev spec)

    We have mostly been using CC files to sync our collection of file across the team (a la dropbox style) - this is not the most efficient approach. Effectively each designer has a complete copy of a the entire body of work and eventually the team's body of work will out grow the physical storage on their machine. Additionally the whole process is manual and ripe of human introduced error.

    Just adding some thoughts while they are fresh in my head.

    Adobe has done some good updates for multi-user collaboration - but it's still based on the concept that it's an individual sharing with others - it's supposed to be creative cloud for TEAMS and we need capabilities for all assets and libraries to be available from a group without the need to invite each member. perhaps a group capability? Though right now I would almost prefer this be more automatic for groups.

    I use comp with XD now though it requires some hoop jumping - the biggest short coming is the ability to add free form (non-gesture) elements to the project. Adobe Draw works okay for this but now were talking 4 apps and with no integrated workflow to speak of.

    I'd suggest looking at this as a larger gesture support feature.. There are a number of common interaction patterns that would be useful demonstrate in a prototype , eg. long press, pinch/spread some that are touch others are both touch and mouse all useful

    OMG this is needed so badly. Today everyone publishes their own versions of prototypes and specs when sharing this with developer or others outside of the group it becomes a nightmare of managing URLs outside of XD

    The easiest way, I believe, to accomplish this without changing how CC team storage space works is to simply update the published item under your work on the web with the ID/name of show published the prototype and include all all prototypes shared with you.

    ideally this action would be accomplished from the app without the need to navigate to the web. And it should be an option that any prototype published is automatically shared with the "team" or a preselected group of people.

    I’ve updated the title to reflect your request. Please note that the current maximum is actually 5s, and you can type the number directly into the interaction popup.

    Ah, okay. I was trying to type in 6s and it kept changing it back to whatever I had selected from the predefined options. * After just trying it out, I think my issue was I was typing in "6s" rather than just "6". In either case I think a longer more flexible time would be beneficial.

    I posted this on another feature - but feel this request is more like what I imagine: (posted on: Collaborative features (drawing) on the shared prototype)

    Im my experience many designers still start with paper and pen/pencil as the initial ideation method for designs. I for one am constantly looking for ways to collaborate across multiple designers (designer-types) from high-level concept, which is often very sketchy > moving into a more "wireframe" type experience which focuses on organization, structure and priority (there are often grayscale) > finally a more refined and styled look and feel.

    I think we all recognize that these 3 steps (or more in some orgs) are converging - but I think it would be extremely useful (especially in larger organization) to have leadership able to quickly concept an idea, then pass it along to folks who will do the due diligence to make the prototype real for validation, or communication with non-design team members.

    Adding in drawing objects would be a huge win.

    I’ll be leaving this suggestion open, but we currently do have comments and replies support in shared prototypes. You can view them by clicking on the speech bubble in the upper right hand corner of your shared prototype page.

    Hope that helps!

    I would add a slight different spin on this feature which I read a marking up a prototype with a pen-like interface. I would like the pen-like drawing/scribble capability in the design mode of XD to "scratch" out a prototype.
