This article provides answers for Enterprise users moving to InVision V7
We are currently rolling out the new V7 in stages. Users on a consumer plan will be updated to the V7 experience at the appropriate time.
Updating to InVision V7 lets you experience the completely new InVision—built to keep you and your team organized.
This guide provides key details about what to expect in V7:
- What’s new in V7 (and what you’ll still enjoy from V6)
- Things to prepare before updating from V6 to V7
- Account access, sharing rights, and document visibility
- Additional V7 resources
Before updating to V7, please be sure to carefully review these important prerequisites and information on feature availability.
What's new in InVision V7
The following are some of the new features that V7 users are loving.
New user roles
New user roles let you provide the right level of visibility to the right people. In V7, we’re introducing two new roles: members and guests.
Enterprise contributor and reviewer roles have been retired in V7; however, the permissions and intended limitations for these roles are still available, and users who had those roles in V6 will simply be assigned a new corresponding role in V7. Learn more.
Quickly access documents, spaces, design systems, and people settings via the new sidebar navigation.
New document permissions let you control who can access your documents. Within the share dialogue, you’ll notice a settings screen for each document. Here you determine who can open the document and which actions they can take.
Self-serve SSO and SCIM provisioning
If your V6 Enterprise already has SSO set up, those settings will be migrated at the time of your update to V7. If your team runs into sign-in trouble after the update, please reach out to our Support team.
Available only in V7, Specs are a new type of InVision document tailored for a specific job—design-to-development collaboration.
Screen Labels let you create customizable filtered views and easily share links to each view. Manage existing labels or create new ones, like Jira milestones.
Your V6 workflow statuses will become tags after the update to V7.
Use Sets to organize your prototype screens into different sections. Sets are especially helpful for creating distinct flows or grouping by platform.
Your V6 screen sections will become sets after the update to V7.
If you can't be there to review a prototype with viewers, don't sweat it! Use Highlighted Comments as visual comment markers to grab viewers' attention and give context.
Your V6 tour points will become highlighted comments after the update to V7.
Prototype screen history
The screen history feature in V7 lets you get daringly creative with your design collaboration—without the fear that wandering too far from previous design iterations might leave you lost with no way back.
A notably improved experience from the InVision V6 offering, spaces in InVision V7 still make it possible to organize all of your project-related documents (prototypes, boards, and freehands) into one space, yet the added ability to make each space public or private (invite-only) gives you greater control over who can discover and access the given space—along with the documents and people who have joined the space.
Spaces are public to all team members by default, but the owner of a space can set it to invite-only. As a best practice, we recommend creating spaces for each team or squad using InVision.
Your V6 spaces will still be accessible after the update to V7.
You’ll also still enjoy many of the core capabilities in the current version of InVision (V6), including these InVision staples:
- Craft Sync for sending Sketch and Photoshop designs into InVision instantly
- Prototypes for transforming static designs into clickable prototypes
- Freehand for capturing feedback throughout the product design process
- Boards for telling stories and sharing files
- Inspect for turning prototypes into design specs
- Public share links for making documents viewable to anyone who needs them
This release represents an initial set of capabilities that we’ll be continually adding to and evolving, so please let us know what works well, what doesn’t, and any ideas you may have on how to improve the overall experience.
Preparing for your InVision V7 update
It's important that you're fully aware of some things before deciding to embrace InVision V7, including a few things to prepare and consider before updating from V6 to V7 as well as the differences in available features.
InVision V7 prerequisites
Before updating to InVision V7, please read the following prerequisites and considerations:
- Consolidate all documents before Initial transition: As part of your Enterprise team’s transition to V7, we will move all of your members and company settings.
InVision cannot transfer documents from other accounts to your Enterprise account once we have moved it to V7; therefore, your V6 admin must have all people on the team consolidate their documents—including any from their personal V6 accounts that should have belonged to the Enterprise—prior to migrating your Enterprise to V7.
- Data created in InVision V7 is not backward compatible: After the transition, all of your V6 documents will be accessible on the new V7 platform. If necessary, we are able to move your team back to V6, but please note that any new work created in V7 cannot be moved back to V6.
- Access to documents: All of the prototypes, boards (not applicable to V6 Private Cloud users; see note below), and freehands your team created will be brought over to V7. Any documents that didn't already belong to a space will be placed in the Migrated Documents space. This space is invite-only, but by default, anyone who had access to view all documents in V6 will have access to the Migrated Documents space in V7.
Note: Boards will not be brought over to V7 for InVision V6 Private Cloud users. Learn more here: Important announcement about Boards
- Updated Craft: For the best experience, please update to the latest version of Craft prior to the transition.
- Planned downtime: The transition will require planned downtime, so keep an eye out for email and in-app reminder messages once your Enterprise is scheduled. The transition requires around 2 hours on average and will be run during off-business hours, which are listed here in EST:
- 10pm - 7am, Monday through Thursday
- 8pm Friday - 8pm Sunday
- 7pm Sunday - 7am Monday
InVision V7 feature availability
Some InVision V6 features are not currently supported in V7 due to low usage:
- Tour Points within comments
Now called highlighted comments, this feature has been modified for additional flexibility in V7. You can use highlighted comments as tour guides, plus you can now select colors to establish comment categories that streamline communication.
You can now achieve similar results with screen labels in V7.
- Prototype Assets tab
You can achieve similar functionality by using Craft to export assets from Sketch so they appear in the Inspect Assets tab. Learn how to download existing assets before or after updating to V7.
- Duplicate boards and freehands
- Starred documents
- Activity (global and document-level)
- Custom branding for Enterprise teams
- Enterprise dashboard
With InVision V7, you can export your prototype as a fully functioning offline prototype, ZIP file, or PDF—though it's not possible to include comments, use landscape orientation, or use password protection when exporting to PDF.
Browser requirements for InVision V7
InVision V7 supports the latest 2 versions of the following browsers:
Currently, V7 fully supports Internet Explorer 11 only during the short sign-in process.
If you’d like to share any feedback or report any issues with InVision V7, please contact InVision Support. Our team will work directly with you to ensure you have a smooth experience going forward, and your feedback will help us shape the future of the new V7 platform.
Switching back from InVision V7 to V6
Our goal is to always provide the best experience and the highest level of support possible. If you are not happy with your experience on InVision V7, you do have the option to switch back to InVision V6.
Keep in mind that any new data created by your team in V7 cannot be brought back to V6, so be sure to save any work you created in V7 separately. For example, if you created a prototype in V7, save the original source file (Studio, Sketch, Photoshop, etc.) and screens in a safe place so you can recreate those prototypes in V6.
After carefully considering the loss of data that will occur if you switch back to InVision V6, if you are certain you want to switch back, you can contact InVision Support. After we've received your request, please allow 12 hours for us to complete the switch. Once the switch has begun processing, you’ll experience about 5 minutes of downtime.
Getting set up in InVision V7
This guide provides instructions for a few common getting-started tasks and questions our Customer Success Managers often hear from people who have recently updated from InVision V6 to InVision V7.
For a complete walkthrough of how to configure and create your first documents in InVision V7, check out the rest of this V7 product documentation.
Once you receive an email confirmation that the transition to InVision V7 is complete, you and your team members can access your new InVision V7 team account.
To sign in to InVision V7:
- Click login.invisionapp.com.
- Enter the email address and password for your Team or Enterprise account.
These should be the same account credentials you used for InVision V6.
- Next to the team you want to use, click Select.
You also have the option to sign in to your team by navigating directly to your unique InVision team domain:
Team sharing settings
In InVision V7, you’ll find that the Let members invite people from within documents and spaces setting is turned off by default. This is to prevent team members from unintentionally creating new paid Enterprise licenses by inviting new users to documents or spaces.
If you’re an owner or admin of an InVision V7 team or Enterprise and would like to change this setting:
- Sign in to your InVision team or Enterprise here:
- In the lower-left corner, click the expandable team tray.
- Click Settings, and then click Team sharing settings.
- Uncheck the toggle and click Update.
If you updated from InVision V6 to V7, you may notice a space called Migrated Documents. This space is invite-only, but by default, anyone who had access to view all documents in InVision V6 will have access to the Migrated Documents space in InVision V7. To learn more, check out this article: InVision V7: What is the Migrated Documents space?
Consider creating spaces to ensure stakeholders maintain access to project-specific and/or team documents moving forward. For more information, check out the following articles on the Spaces feature:
- InVision V7: How do I transfer my document to another space?
- InVision V7: How do I add people to a space?
When updating to the new InVision, any teams you created in V6 will be converted to user groups. User groups allow you to more easily manage document access for a large number of users.
It's important to note that there's a difference in permissions for V6 teams and V7 user groups. To learn how this difference can impact your groups, check out this article on converting teams to groups.
