Adding Interactions to Components doesn't seem to work.


I built shared components that include navigation interactions to different screens. I had planned to use this component on every screen in my design.

Once I developed what was needed and converted to a component, all interactions within the component were deleted. 

I tried to go back to the component to add interactions back, but that's not possible.  You can only add one interaction at the component level, not the individual items in the component :-( 

Is this a bug or a purposed development choice.  If choice, this really restricts components and is a real challenge for a UX asset management standpoint. 

There is a closed thread covering this topic, so it doesn't seem it made the Product Roadmap, as last update from InVision Product was January.    

Any assistance in this matter is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hi Michael,

As you've noticed from the Community thread that you linked to, and when working with Studio, it's not currently possible to create interactions from elements within Components in Studio. However, I can assure you that this is a highly requested feature that our Support and Product teams are continuing to track.

As one of our Studio Project Managers, Eric, mentions in the linked post, this is a feature that is certainly on our team's radar. I will be bringing this up with Eric again in our next Studio product meeting to share your feedback from this post.

Additionally, I will open a ticket on your behalf to track your interest for this feature, and keep you up to date on any news about this feature. I will be sure to provide any updates on this feature request here in Community. I'm sorry that I don't have better news at this time!

Studio is in active development and updates that introduce new features, or modify existing features, are coming out on regular basis. You can keep an eye out for any updates by checking out our release notes. We agree that features like this will create a more efficient and enjoyable experience when using Studio.

If there's anything else I can help out with, please let me know. For those who would like to add their feedback about this potential feature, please fill out a ticket with Support here detailing the feature you are looking for.

Have a wonderful day and thanks for your patience,
