In Sketch, you typically draw hotspots over areas you would like to be clickable and by choosing the destination artboard of the hotspot you can create interactive prototypes. Once you publish a Sketch design with hotspots to the Indigo.Design cloud, the hotspots will be detected, and you will end up with a prototype with interactions baked in.
Instead of defining hotspots in Sketch and cluttering your design file, you may publish your Indigo.Design-based project to our cloud and it will automatically detect components, letting you easily link screens. This gives you a clean interactive prototype with smooth user flow to share and test.
Exporting Sketch prototypes to screen images is not necessary anymore, and seriously, it is 2022, who would ever want that. Use the Sketch plugin to publish your design to the Indigo.Design cloud hassle-free with just a few clicks and then only sync it with ctrl+shift+Y as you make tweaks. If you have a sentiment for the old ways and still want to export your screens as jpegs, Indigo.Design still has you covered with the Image-based prototyping flow available when you start creating a prototype in the Indigo.Design Cloud.
With your prototype in the Indigo.Design cloud, you may either share it directly with stakeholders to leave their feedback as comments or create usability tests defining tasks and scenarios for users to complete. This is a unique advantage of our design system as it follows user testing best practices, provides concrete insights and user click maps, letting you identify issues early on and iterate your design quickly to assure a smooth user flow.
