Marking Artboards to Sync (So not one page at a time)

Hi,

I currently have a very large project that I am trying to sync with invision craft (using Sketch).

My workflow is: I have multiple PAGES for each step of the journey.

On each Page are multiple Artboards that show the page for breakpoints - Mobile, Tablet, Desktop

In Invision I have Projects for Mobile, Tablet, Desktop.

Syncing with Invision is a slow, painful nightmare as I have to select ONE page at a time to upload. 

Is there a way to mark artboards for synching across multiple pages so I can batch synch at once? 

- I do realise I could have Pages for each Breakpoint which would make life easier. But This is not my chosen workflow/ I'm taking over from a colleague while he's on leave. He'll be back so I don't want to change it drastically!

Hi Dan,

Thanks for reaching out about this! You can absolutely save some time by syncing only selected artboards in your Sketch prototype. 

Rather than syncing all artboards available, it’s possible to sync specific artboards by clicking the desired artboard names. After clicking the Sync button, you’ll see the option to update the artboards you selected. To learn more about this process, check out our Help Article, How can I speed up syncing with Craft Sync?

If this doesn't help, can you please provide some more details including a screenshot displaying what you are referring to when you say you have multiple pages with artboards on each page?

Hope this helps!

Thanks Shaina!

 

I do know about syncing only selected artbaords - but in my file (the workflow we have set up here too) we have 1 Artboard on 20+ pages to synch with a particular prototype. 

So to update the Desktop Prototype, I select 1 artboard, Sync, wait for it to complete (because I can't queue it up, as it says it's already uploading), Select next DSK artboard on next page, Sync, wait. etc etc.
