InVision Overview

What is InVision?

InVision is a digital product design to development platform for design and developer teams to build high-fidelity web and mobile prototypes. Teams can turn ideas into screen designs using InVision's vector-based drawing and flexible layers. Users are able to prototype, manage, review, refine, and test digital products without a line of code, as well as collaborate in real time and collect feedback to help move projects forward.

InVision enables users to connect the entire product design workflow. Teams can explore ideas using the digital whiteboard to create freehand sketches, draw, wireframe, and collect feedback from team members on all work-in-progress designs. InVision's screen design tool comes with intuitive vector-based drawing functionality and flexible layers, including built-in animated transitions and micro-interactions, which allow static screens to become working prototypes. All team members are notified immediately of any changes made to designs, which are automatically synchronized to the entire team. Designers are able to switch to the latest version or roll back updates at any time. Users can also access multiple libraries directly from Sketch or InVision, and push or pull changes with a click.

Users can keep all brand and UX components such as images, fonts, colors, icons, and even usage documents within the system, providing team members with a single source of truth. The InVision platform integrates with third party collaboration tools such as Jira, Slack, Trello, DropBox, Basecamp, and more, allowing team members to seamlessly navigate the full design process in one place.

The prototyping tool you need to use!

We're able to quickly prototype full sites or small CRO changes and with the added ability to update on the fly,​ we can push changes live to anyone viewing live. It's allowed us to show off our thoughts and ideas to clients and stakeholders with great effect, wowing them every time​!

Essential product team collaboration tool

I've used this for many years and the product features have remained the same since 4 years ago – seems like they've been focusing all their energy into developing Invision Studio (their own competitor/alternative to Sketch app).

Great software for website prototyping!

This tool has helped me to present and explain the website design and behavior successfully and accurately to clients - at the same time, that improves the communication between all the parties involve in the development and approval.

Practical but also frustrating as PO/Dev

This tool as the potential to be very good. What I need are easily shared snapshots of a design at a given point which can not be overridden. e.g. This was X design at 14:35 on Thursday. Then we know that we are working with the right design and can inspect it and use it.

It needs to be faster.

Pros

I mainly use Invision as a delivery method for presenting web and mobile site designs. We have a few internal sites we manage and I use Invision to show any CRO changes that are to be made. This makes it easy for design, dev and directors to see how things work and what it will look like before any time is spent on development.

A bonus for our dev team is the inspect function, having uploaded form Sketch they can inspect fonts, colours, sizes and basic CSS attributes to exactly copy the design. Assets can also be downloaded​ which saves time if they change over time.

Cons

Some basic functionality such as fixed background images would be useful to convey how some designs should work. I know it's not meant to be a working site, it's just the little touches sometimes that could help others see your vision.

Pros

It's great for creating clickable prototypes that can be tested in a web browser or mobile. The commenting feature is good for having discussions and making notes on specific mockups/screens for streamlined and organized collaboration.

Cons

There's no good way to organize user flows or screens in a project if the project contains over 30 screens. The search/filter and workflow feature is not helpful when I just want to group specific screens together because they pertain to a specific user flow.

Pros

I like the ease of use of the platform and the intuitive process of prototyping is on the platform.

The mobile version tools are great since they make the website feel almost as a final product with the animations and interactions.

The integration with Craft make it so easy to have all the pages updated and properly organized in minutes.

Cons

There is still room for improvements on the platform, like add features that allow having fixed/sticky elements on the prototype besides the header and footer.

Pros

Inspect tool is great for giving to developers and asking them to pick colours, spacings etc from a design. There are also prototype functionalities which are very useful.

Cons

I find this software so clunky and slow. It takes an age to load, it's so heavy. We actually moan about this in sprint planning when there's an invision link in a ticket.

There are also more pressing issues, such as the difficulty in versioning. Developers don't like it when you add a screenshot because it doesn't reflect the design, but when we reference invision, the design has changed and no longer meets the original scope of the ticket. It's great for designers if they want to be able to update a design at one click of a button in Sketch, but it can cause real arguments and confusion between developers.

Navigation is also slow and confusing, but that might be the way our designers have set it up.

Pros

The integration with Sketch makes it easy to stitch together prototypes from screens or wireframes created. InVision is a great tool to present work, concept and ideas with non-design stakeholders - it allows them to envision what their product could look like once developed, without having to pay for the development. Great for MVP creation

Cons

Limited transition options - not a great tool to demonstrate any sort of live interactions or animations. The Craft plug-in, which is used to push screens from a screen design tool to invision, can often be buggy, laggy or can crash fairly often.
