Creating a team in the New InVision (V7) lets you experience the new InVision workspace. It has a fresh new look, advanced organization features, and expanded collaboration capabilities to build better products even faster.
This guide provides information about:
- How to create a team in the New InVision from your V6 account.
- What this means for your V6 InVision experience.
- How to set up your team in the New InVision (V7).
- How to switch between your V6 and V7 accounts.
How to create a team in the New InVision from your V6 account
If you want to start using the New InVision, you can create a new team associated with the same email address associated with your V6 InVision account.
- Navigate to this URL.
- Enter the email address associated with your V6 InVision account and password and select Sign in.
- Enter a team name and domain.
- Select Create team.
What does this mean for your V6 InVision experience?
You now have access to different workspaces in InVision associated with your email address: your V6 InVision account and your New InVision workspace (V7).
Existing documents in your V6 account
Your existing V6 documents aren't compatible with the New InVision experience, and it's not possible to transfer documents between V6 and V7 accounts. If you start documents in your new team workspace, you won’t be able to transfer them to your V6 account, and you can’t move your existing V6 documents to your new V7 account.
That said, you can recreate your V6 documents in your New InVision workspace (V7):
- Prototypes. Export your V6 prototypes and upload the screens image files to a prototype in your New InVision workspace. Learn more here: Exporting prototypes and screens.
You can also copy V6 prototypes to your V7 team by following the steps in this article: Copy a V6 prototype to a V7 team.
- Freehands. Export a freehand as an image, or copy and paste the contents of a V6 freehand into a freehand in your New InVision workspace. Learn more here: Exporting a freehand.
- Boards. Export all items in a V6 board as a ZIP file and upload them to a board in your New InVision workspace. Learn more here: Exporting board items.
You can also import your boards from Miro or Mural into Freehand, making the transition to Freehand painless.
It's not possible to migrate your current V6 plan to the New InVision. You can still upgrade your V6 account or change to a different plan. You can also choose to downgrade your V6 plan to the Free plan and upgrade to any of the V7 plans in your new workspace.
You can learn more about the New InVision plans in this article.
Once in the Free plan, all but one prototypes will be locked—since the Free plan only allows one active prototype—, but all documents will remain in the account. If you decide to upgrade your account later, the locked prototypes will become available again.
Setting up your team in the New InVision
Now that you have access to your New InVision workspace, you can start making it your own.
To customize your team icon and URL, along with more settings to fine-tune your experience, read this article: InVision V7 team settings.
Collaborators and pending invites in your V6 account won't be carried over. To start inviting people to your New InVision team, read this article: Adding and removing users in an InVision V7 team.
Note that all InVision V7 accounts require a team. This allow users to make the most of InVision’s collaborative features right from the start. That said, you don't have to use any of the team features, and you can still be the only user on the account.
Switching between your accounts
Once you’ve created a New InVision team, you can access both your V6 and New InVision accounts and switch between them to work across both experiences.
