Overall Satisfaction with InVision
We, the design team, use InVision to mock-up website design for user testing and communicating with developers our user flow, visual design, and interaction design. We work with designers and developers all around the world. InVision allows us to share remotely and communicate in different time zones. For example, someone in America could review the designs and couple hours later have someone in Asia working on those adjustments.
- Invision lets me add hotspots to move between screens quickly and build templates. When syncing the top nav bar, I like repeating the template instead of building from scratch.
- Invision communicates comments well - the email notification follow-up allows me to keep track of new updates.
- Invision shows different interactions on desktop such as overlay, hovers, and scrolling features. This helps communicate the design idea best to developers.
- Invision could work better with scalability. We place everything on Invision, once I have about 200 screens up it moves incredibly slow.
- Invision allows for automatic import from Photoshop and Sketch, could we get that for Adobe Illustrator?
- One new idea would allow hotspots to automatically detect the item they are linked to, so if a button gets moved, the hotspot moves with it.
InVision works well for communicating the design with developers and user testing. However, it doesn't work well for low fidelity testing such as wireframes. When using InVision for low fidelity user testing, the user expected a high fidelity website since they were used to seeing it on the computer. They focused more on the display method than the user flow.
