Follow

This article provides answers for InVision V7. Not sure which version you're using? Find out.

Updating to InVision V7 lets you experience the completely new InVision—built to keep you and any teammates or clients organized. By creating a new team on InVision V7, you get access to more documents and features—completely free.

This guide provides key details about to expect in InVision V7:

  • What’s new in InVision V7 (and what you’ll still enjoy from InVision V6)
  • Re-uploading existing projects & other things to know before updating
  • Account access, sharing rights, and document visibility
  • Additional InVision V7 resources

We’re continually evaluating how to improve our InVision V7 experience, so if you have any feedback about your experience or this guide, send the InVision V7 Product team a note at [email protected].

What's new in InVision V7

Here are a handful of incredibly useful new features that other InVision V7 users are loving:

  • Spaces: Spaces make it possible to organize all of your project-related documents (prototypes, boards, and freehands) into one space. Spaces are public to all team members by default, but the owner of a given space can set it to invite-only access.
  • Newly redesigned home screen: See all of your spaces in the new home screen sidebar, making it easier to find past and current projects.
  • Sets: Organize your prototype screens into different sets, especially helpful for creating distinct flows or grouping by platform.
  • User Roles: New user roles let you provide the right level of visibility to the right people. In InVision V7, we’re introducing two new roles: team members and external guests.
  • Document Permissions: 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.

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 that needs them

This release represents an initial set of capabilities that we’ll be constantly adding to, 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 fresh start with InVision V7

It's important that you're fully aware of some things before deciding to embrace InVision V7, including a few prerequisites for accepting early access as well as the differences in available features.

InVision V7 early access prerequisites

Since InVision V7 incorporates a number of important changes and is still under active development, early access comes with the following prerequisites:

  • Initial refresh: As part of your update to InVision V7, your work will not be automatically moved over for you. That means you'll need to re-upload your existing projects—prototypes, freehands, and boards—from the legacy version of InVision (V6) to your new team on V7. This should only take a couple minutes. Your work will always be available in V6.
  • Data created in InVision V7 is not backward compatible: After the transition, all of your InVision V6 projects will be accessible on the new InVision V7 platform. If necessary, we are able to move your team back to InVision V6, but please note that any new work created in InVision V7 cannot be moved back to InVision V6.
  • Updated Studio and Craft: For the best experience, please update Studio and Craft to their latest respective versions prior to the transition.

InVision V7 feature availability

Some InVision V6 features are not currently supported in InVision V7 due to low usage:

  • Tour Points within comments*
  • Workflow*
  • Prototype History mode
  • Prototype Assets tab
    You can achieve similar functionality by using Craft to export assets from Sketch so they appear in the Inspect Assets tab.
  • Duplicate boards and freehands
  • Favorite documents
  • Activity (global and project-level)
  • Custom branding for Enterprise teams
  • Enterprise dashboard

*Planned in an upcoming release

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, InVision V7 fully supports Internet Explorer 11 only during the short sign-in process.
