I've been waiting for this feature since quite a long time ago.

This is a reason why I'm still hesitating to use invison studio.

This is something Figma offers and honestly I'm moving over there, I requested this back in December of 2019 with only vague mention of this "might" get worked on. I have work to do and I have to use the tools that let me do it. This is not some trivial feature to develop I'm sure, I get it, which is all the more reason why this vague mention of it maybe being implemented is so frustrating, because I figure by the time we hear it's being worked on, it'll be half a year before we see it. Finally, if developers are only looking at the people offering feedback here directly, they are likely missing out on a lot of people who could use this feature who aren't coming here to mention it.

Plus one! I've upvoted every post like this so far. Often the research participants we work with don't know when the prototype is truly interactive or not. They have to stop and ask whether or not they can type in, and if they can't, they sometimes accidentally click on something else. Not being able to type creates a rift in testing experience. It doesn't matter if the text saves or not; we just want to see what they think or say in an experience that's as close as possible to reality. Please feel free to contact me if you ever need to do research on this feature, uplevel this to your PMs, etc! Hopefully my feedback will spur your product teams to action.

This feature has been tracking interest for years now, but it still isn't here! I know there is a TON of interest in it, so I hope InVision decides to prioritize it. As for me, add me to the list of people who is not using this product solely because of the lack of input field. InVision team, this is a dealbreaker! Please prioritize it on your list.

Hi. It’s been almost a year since this request have been made. I wonder when you can implement an inputbox where users can type some texts.

Guessing this is still not a feature and I'll just have a ticket opened on my behalf to track my interest for this? And that I should keep an eye out for an email indicating that you’ve formally tracked my feedback.

I agree with Scott. I’ve already had to make the switch to other tools that offer this. It’s extremely disappointing that this has never been prioritized.

Count me as well ! I think this is the only thing I miss about Axure :P

Count me in too. Only makes sense to at least have a user simulate entering a search query or other form field during a usability test. It's jarring having someone test a page (especially one that is just a form) and have them immediately click the CTA, it doesn't match their natural behavior.

This would be especially valuable for benchmarking studies when measuring time on task or even errors for example.

I want to also comment that in a recent study I actually made a prototype with an Adobe PDF because Adobe Acrobat has the ability to add form elements. It was extremely time consuming to build, but I was able to measure time on task with it.

Why do we not have this feature? 

It's like having a steering wheel on a car that only turns left...
It makes absolutely NO sense.

Please add the ability to create real text input fields, radio buttons, etc.
