Sharing Prototypes

Share your prototypes with anyone easily. Manage who can access a prototype and choose how to display a prototype when sharing.

Pair a prototype with interaction recipes for engineers to find all interaction specs needed for development.

Managing Access

When you share a prototype, allow or limit access of your prototype. Choose who can view and download a prototype. Click on Access Settings in the overflow menu.

Allowing Anyone

Allow anyone who has the actual shareable link to view and/or download the prototype.

Allowing Team Members

Team and Enterprise plan only.

Allow team members to view and/or download the prototype uploaded to a public project in the team space. This means that anyone who's not a team member doesn't have access, even if they have the shareable link.

Allowing Project Members

Team and Enterprise plan only.

Allow project members to view and/or download the prototype uploaded to a private project in the team space. This means that anyone who's not a project member doesn't have access, even if they have the shareable link.

Password Protection

Allowing external access could be a matter for great concern. Enable password protection to externally share your prototypes securely.

  1. In the overflow menu, click on Access Settings.

  2. Set Can view to Anyone with the link.

  3. Enable Password Protection.

  4. Type in your preferred password.

  5. Click on Save Settings.

Managing Display Options

To share prototypes with different display options, customize these before sharing. A variety of display options are available. Click on Share with Display Options in the overflow menu.

  • Cursor Type: touchpoint or arrow cursor.

  • Show Touch Hint: Highlight the touchable areas.

  • Show UI: Show ProtoPie Cloud's UI, such as the toolbar and sidebar.

  • Show Device Mockup: Show the prototype in the device frame.

  • Scale to Fit: Scale the prototype to fit in the browser.

Sharing Without Distractions

Let stakeholders focus on your prototype without any visual distractions. Check Scale to Fit, and uncheck Show UI (and optionally Show Device Mockup).

Sharing With Touch Hint

Guide stakeholders throughout your prototype. Check Touch Hint to highlight the touchable areas.

Sharing for Usability Testing

It depends on how and where you doing (remote) usability testing. If you're testing on desktop, consider sharing your prototype without any visual distractions. Learn more about how to do this.

If you're testing on mobile or tablet, we recommend using ProtoPie Player for your users to have the most realistic experience possible. Learn more about ProtoPie Player.

Sharing With Engineers

Pair a prototype with interaction recipes for engineers to find all interaction specs needed for development. We recommend sharing both the prototype and one or multiple interaction recipes.
