Screens that have been already exported to InVision stop syncing...

After exporting a screen to InVision, if I delete it in Sketch and give the same name to another one, it does not synchronize it anymore. It gives a message that everything is synchronized, but it is untruthful, because later I see that the InVision is outdated. Which forces me to review the flow screen by screen to identify those who have this problem, erase them, and re-animate and link them again.

Hi Flour,

Currently, Craft uses the Sketch ID of the artboards to overwrite previously synced artboards. This can create some confusion for users who use different Sketch files to try and update the same artboards as the Sketch ID will not match.

We've received similar feedback from others and we've made sure to let our Product team know. Having the ability to choose between using the artboard name or Sketch ID for overwriting screens would be a great improvement to Craft Sync. It would allow users to update the same artboard from different Sketch files or from the same Sketch file with the same artboard name.

I've passed along your feedback but please don't hesitate to reach out if there's anything else we can help with!

Hi Camille,

Could you provide us what is the current status of this issue? This is rather important to fix it, because all InVision function is irrelevant due to this issue. It is because, when someone leaves a comment, or set a status of screen, or work on the same project, but from different files it makes lots of confusion and mess.
