Learn how to share your designs and prototypes with stakeholders, developers, or fellow designers.
The Share mode in XD consolidates different sharing capabilities into a centralized location and makes sharing your designs and collaborating with stakeholders and designers a breeze!
You can use the built-in presets, such as Design Review, Development, Presentation, User Testing, and Custom to share your documents and manage your shared links.
You can organize your designs and add right controls to share them with your stakeholders. Often times, you would want to create different versions of a design and share with different set of stakeholders. In such scenarios, Multiple Flows let you create and share different versions of a design in the same document, all in one place.
Multiple Flows are most commonly used when designing interfaces that contains different workflows such as login screens, registration screens, playlists, and so on.
For example: When designing landing pages, social posts, emails, and advertisements in XD, you can create and share different versions of your design in the same document and in one place.
Once your flows are defined and wired together in the design document, go ahead and share them using shareable links across various target surfaces.
Follow these steps to share Multiple Flows with your stakeholders:
XD provides scenario-based presets to create shareable links for your designs with ease. For example, when creating a design link for review, all you have to do is select the available preset based on your requirement, set link access permission, and share it with your stakeholders. You no longer have to worry about setting commenting options or navigation controls.
|Design Review||Development||Presentation||User Testing||Custom|
|Get feedback on your design or prototype||Share your design specifications with developers||Optimize for presenting your design to stakeholders||Invite your users to test your design||Customize the viewing experience of your design|

Alternatively, once your artboards are set and wired, you can choose to:
Once artboards and interaction flows are defined in the Prototype mode, your design spec or prototype is ready to share. The title of your defined interaction flow appears in the Title pane. You can modify the title based on your design need.
While sharing a prototype or a design spec, you can choose to publish either a public link, or a secure private link and still change its access setting interchangeably at any given point.
No, you don't have to create a new link for an XD document. As you change your design or your preset, you can update an existing link that you have shared for review.
Once you update the link, the same URL is updated with the latest preset information while preserving previous comments, changes, and conversations.
You can manage published links of your XD document by navigating to Manage Links website from XD.
As a designer, you can share flows within your designs or prototypes using any of the available sample presets and set permissions to reshare them further. Reviewers can add, remove, or accept requests from other set of reviewers who want to access or view the secure private link.

As a reviewer, you can access the review invite from email and comment on shared designs or prototypes.
