Best way to prototype a complex system

Hi fellow Figmas!

I have a interesting discussion opened with the design team we are trying to figure out the best way to do prototypes in figma. Our flow for most workfiles is to create features on different pages (under one file). For example login registration is one page, then dashboard is second with all its features. This is due complexity and agile development that it looks the best for handover and understanding the phase od the project.

BUT…

How to do prototypes? Do we create each screen into a component and then copy instance to another page called prototype. Do we create different flows for each page if we do, what are the best practices to do so…

What is your experience, let’s try to figure out a way to do this together :smile:
