how do i 'play' the invision app?

I was 'invited' to view an invision app. The 'screens' view shows a couple hundred screen shots. If I open an individual screen, it may have a few 'hot' navigation links to a related screen (pressing shift key shows 'blue' hot links). 

My question is, is there a way to 'play' the UI? it does not appear that all the 'buttons' on each individual screen are active. I just wonder if there is a mode i'm missing where they would be. Should each screen viewed in 'screens' view show all the nav options for that screen, so that if i open one screen all available links for that screen are active.

I'm thinking a comparison of what i'm asking is like power point where you see a list of all the slides, but then you can 'play' the 'slide show'.

Just don't know if there is something i'm missing about how to 'play' a navigable UI or if it is just a series of screens where some links are active and not a fully functional UX

Hi Jeff,

Thanks for reaching out here in Community about how to preview a prototype that's been shared with you. In order to do this on your computer, simply use the arrow keys on your keyboard to navigate between screens. If you're on a mobile device, you can swipe left/right to move between screens.

As you've discovered, you can also hit the SHIFT key on your keyboard to show all hotspots. Simply click on these hotspots to trigger different effects and navigate between screens.

If you're continuing to have issues viewing the prototype that's been shared with you, please don't hesitate to follow up with more questions.

Have a great day,

Thanks for clarifying. 'shift' will show available hotspots. Otherwise, i can 'arrow' from screen to screen.
