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
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.
