When sharing a prototype, you can adjust the link settings to fit your audience's needs.
To access the prototype share link settings:
- Open your prototype.
- Click the Share button.
- At the bottom of the share modal, click Link Settings.
To learn about each setting, check out the following table.
Allow commenting on screens
When toggled on, link viewers can comment on prototype screens.
Allow access to all screens in prototype
When toggled on, link viewers can navigate between screens by using the Left and Right Arrow keys or by clicking the screens icon (). When toggled off, link viewers can only navigate between screens via hotspots.
Enabling password protection lets you create a custom password for your prototype. When you send someone a share link, they’ll need to enter the password to view the prototype.
Start the share link at
This setting lets you choose the screen your prototype will start on.
When toggled on, viewers can navigate your screens by clicking any hotspots you've created. When toggled off, viewers can only navigate the prototype by using the Left and Right Arrow keys or by clicking the screens icon.
Prevent hotspot hinting
When toggled on, your hotspots won't flash when someone clicks a prototype screen. This is especially useful when conducting user testing.
Require user identification
When you require user identification, viewers must enter their name and email address to view the prototype (unless they are already signed in to their InVision account).
Show Inspect Link
When toggled on, viewers can click the Inspect icon () to request access or sign in.
If you're on an Enterprise plan and the viewer is an external user, requesting Inspect access will send an email to the Enterprise owner. Before the requester can access Inspect, they must become a member of the Enterprise.
If you want to edit the settings of a share link you've previously created, you will be able to do it from the Manage share links page. See more information and the steps you'll need to follow in this article: Managing share links.
