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 to your prototype. Choose who can view and download a prototype. Click on the Access Settings button.

[object Object]

Allowing Anyone

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

[object Object]

Allowing Team Members

Team and Enterprise plan only.

[object Object]

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.

[object Object]

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 the Share Pie button and toggle any of the options as you see fit. Visually know at a glance how your prototype would appear to stakeholders.

[object Object]
  • Touch Hint: Highlight the touchable areas.
  • Touch Cursor: Select touchpoint or arrow cursor.
  • Device Frame: Show the prototype in the device frame.
  • ProtoPie Interface: Show ProtoPie Cloud's interface, such as the toolbar and sidebar.
    • Scale to Fit: Scale the prototype to fit in the browser.

Sharing Without Distractions

Let stakeholders focus on your prototype without any visual distractions. Enable Scale to Fit, and disable ProtoPie Interface (and optionally Device frame).

Sharing With Touch Hint

Guide stakeholders throughout your prototype. Enable 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.

[object Object]

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. Click on the Record button to create interaction recipes for engineers to follow.
