Adding a Status to Pages and Frames

  1. If you work on a lot of designs, the amounts of concepts will grow rapidly. Each concept goes in a page within a page I have heaps of screens. Some dialogs of screens are completely finished, some are still work in progress and some are concepts.

  2. I’ve been using Icons to give some sort of status to my pages. Let’s say, my design is finished I will give it a checkbox → See image. I also use empty pages to make some sort of subdivision in my pages.

    This system works wel with pages, and also works well with frames like here:

I used a legend to document this. Very easy…

  1. Does anyone else use this as well for their designs and concepts? I find it’s a good way to give our developers better insight if the page or frame is ready for development or not. It wouldn’t be the first time that a design is developed, without being completely finished. :smiley:

But I think would be really cool that this was a feature, where you configure some statuses for your entire team and they can use it accordingly. This could save a lot of time.

There are a lot of plugins that do the same. Just search for frame status, or status annotation in the community.
