How do I add a hotspot/link to an overlay

Hello, I am trying to build a dropdown menu in a website prototype. I used overlay to make the dropdown menu slide over the screen you are on I want this menu to link to other pages, so I added hotspots to the menu. But when I am in play mode, these links dont work. Any advice? How do I make a dropdown menu work in Invision?


It says on this support page that I can link to another page from an overlay, but it isnt working for me.

Maybe it is a bug. I doesn't work today, but it did last week.

Hi all,

Thanks for reaching out on this! We discovered an issue earlier this week with overlay hotspots not triggering in 'Play' mode.

I'm happy to share our engineers released a fix for this yesterday so we believe you should no longer run into this issue. We're terribly sorry for the hiccup!

Please give this another try if you run into any further issue, please submit a support request so we can dig in further.
