How to hide Overlays from public view of my presentation?

Howdy,

I have a project i'm working on in invisionCloud that is using a couple overlays. https://invis.io/9SSR5MJYREW

When viewing the shared link of the prototype and the user clicks through to the end, the overlays are also shown to the user, which I don't want them to see. I just want them to see the artboards, and have the overlays work on those artboards, but not show them my overlays as if they were an actual page of the prototype.

Here's a screen of a page in the prototype that they see, but I don't want them to. http://prntscr.com/o8371q

Hi Kyle!

Im assuming you mean the blue hotspots?

Luckily there is a way of hiding these!

These are the steps to follow to hide these: 

  1.  Click 'Share' on the bottom right of the screen. This will reveal a pop up.
  2. In the bottom right of this pop up there is a text link that says 'Link Settings'. Click this. 
  3. You will see 3 options with toggles to the right of them. Under these toggles you will see 'More Options' which will reveal 4 more options.
  4. One of the options/toggles is 'Prevent hotspot hinting' activating this toggle will hide the hotspots from people accessing the prototype via public share links.

Hope it works! Let me know if you need any further assistance. 

 

Thanks

Owen

I have the same question.

I don't want the artwork used for the hotspot to appear in the sequence of screens viewed by my client.  Any plans of adding the ability to hide a screen from view but still have it function as the source for a hotspot? Seems like a must have requirement. 

Thanks
