Automatically create Sections from Sketch

I'm using Sketch with the craft plugin to sync to InVision.

Is there a way to automatically create sections when syncing to InVision. Maybe some sort of naming convention for the artboards?

Also: How does InVision decide in which Section to place newly created artboards when syncing to an existing InVision Project?

Hi Marcel,

Unfortunately, at this time it is not possible to create new screen sections using Craft Sync, however I can indeed confirm that this is a potential feature that our Product team is tracking. I'm happy to open a ticket on your behalf to track your vote for this feature. Please look for a message confirming your vote soon.

In regards to your question about an ideal naming convention, you can sort your screens by a few preset conditions.

     1. Within your project, select the screens tab, and then select the menu button (3 dot icon next to assets).
     2. NOTE: the default will be set to Manual sort but you have the option to choose alphanumeric sort.
     3. Select the sorting option you would prefer.
          - Alphanumeric: your projects sorted by name
          - Manual: your projects can be sorted manually (drag-n-drop)

Please Note: The following conditions will apply if you select Alphanumeric Sort:

     -Screen dividers (sections) will be removed
     -Screens will no longer be draggable
     -Sorting will apply for all collaborators on this project

Craft Sync will sync your screens based on the order they appear in your layer list. If your prototype contains sections, the newly synced screens will sync to the first section in your prototype. Currently, I do apologize it is not possible to select where the new screen will be placed within the prototype. However, it does appear as if we have an open feature request for this as well. Please let me know if you would like me to open a separate ticket to track your vote for the ability to sync to a specific section in the prototype using Craft Sync.

Hope this helps clear some things up for you, Marcel. Please let me know if you have any outstanding questions.

Thanks,

Shaina

+1 for this. Wold be great to be able to upload artboards into InVision, into a section that is defined, or a way to define a new section.
