Imagine having full control over your shareable prototypes and interaction recipes, and not having to worry about them falling in the wrong hands?

Exactly this is possible with the all-new features for you to share your works worry-free.

  • Public interaction recipes
  • Password protection for prototypes

Let’s deep-dive into these all-new features!

Interaction Recipes

Available for the Team & Enterprise plan only.

We released interaction recipes last year—one of ProtoPie’s hot features. Record a scenario of your prototype’s interactions and its specs, e.g., durations, delays, easing, layer properties, and other important details.

No need to invest in creating separate documents with explanations to illustrate your intended concept. Simply, an interaction recipe contains every single detail of your prototype.

Designers often face difficulties when trying to communicate their ideas and intentions. With this, convey all your intended interactions to engineers and just let them follow the recipe.

Before, you could share interaction recipes with team members only. Not anymore. Share your interaction recipes with anyone now.

Public Interaction Recipes

At ProtoPie, we always think about what to simplify next? The obvious would be to remove this inconvenience.

  • Avoid asking your team admin to invite Engineer A and B.
  • Skip the whole sign-up process for Engineer A and B.

Anyone with the link can access your interaction recipe without creating a ProtoPie account.

Password Protection for Prototypes

Available for anyone.

Share your prototypes and interaction recipes safely with a select few people. With password protection. Happy stakeholders, happy you, right?
