Project Archive


All your older projects deserve a place to rest. That’s why we have created a new place for storing them.

Retire your finished projects using the new Archiving feature. The option is available in the project list, while having your mouse over a project.

There are some things that you should know before doing so. Archiving a project will automatically restrict access to its project files & deliverables, while its share links will be deleted. In other words, an archived project is no longer sharable and its files are not accessible directly from the archive. Though, you can restore an archived project anytime you want and make it sharable again. Thank you all for your feedback.

Three new ways of interacting with Prototypes


We have brought you new ways of interacting with your prototypes using ViewFlux:

Hover states
Want to show your clients how design elements look like on mouse over? Use hover states. Upload an image with the hover state and set it as your target link.

Anchor scrolling
Use anchor scrolling to smoothly move to a section of the same page.

External URL
Adding an external URL will help get a more accurate and natural feeling of your prototype, by letting your clients access links such as social media profiles.

New features coming soon. Stay tuned.

We’ve redesigned the sharing feature


Hey guys, thanks to everyone who sent us feedback. We appreciate your help in making ViewFlux the best tool for prototyping and design feedback.

As you might have noticed we’ve tweaked quite a few things in the past month. This time we had a look at the sharing feature, which we tried to improve. With the new features you can now share your projects directly from ViewFlux without having to send the share links via email or IM. Read more

Design Deliverables - easily share project source files


Once a design project is finished sending files to your clients can sometimes be an unpleasant task. They are either too many or too big (so they can’t be sent via email), or you simply cannot manage them in one place. You’ll usually need to use a 3rd party app for this task and this is why we have added a new feature that helps you deliver your files straight from Viewflux. It just takes two steps, here’s how to do it:

  • Simply go to one of your projects and from the left column click on the “Deliverables” button to upload your files. You can upload a couple of well know image file formats, but you can also upload any other kind of files as long as they are archived.
  • Use the “Share Deliverables” button to send the files to your client. Your client will receive a link with all the files you have added. From there, your users will be able to download one file or all files at a time.

If you have any questions or feedback about this feature please use the feedback widget from the app, we’d love to help. Happy sharing!

New ways of getting notified


When working on new projects, notifications are very important. Many of our users have requested new ways of getting notified via e-mail and we’ve listened. You now have four different ways of getting notified:

  • Immediately – you will receive an email instantly for each individual update;
  • Email Digest once every X hours – you will receive an email containing all the new updates (if there are any) once every X hours;
  • Daily Email Digest at X – you will receive an email once a day at the specified hour;
  • Never – you will not be notified via email.

We recommend you to set your local Timezone in order to get emails at the correct hours.

To access the email notification settings go to My Account and select your preffered option.
