Interactions inside component items


Let's say I have three items that nested inside a group. The group is a component.

I only can add interaction to the group (the component), but if an item nested inside a component, it cannot receive any interaction.

Is this something that is part of Invision capabilities at the moment? Just want to know if this is the case and not simply a bug.

Thanks, Alon.

Hi Alon,

Thanks for following up on out Community Ambassador's questions about this. Unfortunately, this feature is not currently available. However, we are currently tracking interest to allow for interactions to be added to layers within a component!

I will open a ticket on your behalf to track your interest for this functionality. Keep an eye out for an email confirming that we have logged your feedback for this potential feature in Studio. Please let me know if there's anything else I can help out with

Have a wonderful day,

Hi Alon

Thanks for reaching out here in Community about this! To be clear, are you hoping to allow for multiple interactions within a nested component?

What software other than InVision App are you using to get the intended outcome?

Stay awesome!

Hi. As you can see, I have three buttons that are inside a group, and each one of them connects to another artboard. So far, so good.

Let's say I want to use the whole group as a component, so instead of "just" a group, It will be a component that I can use it again.

The problem is, once the btns group will be a component, it is not possible to add interactions to the items inside of it, only to add interaction to the whole container/component.

I hope I'm more clear now. Thanks!

Hey. Just a quick suggestion. The way I "hack" around this is to create a transparent item that I call "hot spot," and I will give the interaction to this item. Hot spots like in Sketch, for example, can be beneficial.

I like studio and the invision ecosystem. I can't wait for future updates.
