Designs

One of the great aspects of ProdPad is being able to bring all the information related to an idea to a single location. No more digging around inboxes and hard drives looking for stuff!

How do I add a design to an idea?

Add a new design

To add a new design to an idea, click on the +Add section button to select the Design section.

Once there, click on "Add a design" and upload an image from your computer, Dropbox, Google Drive or link to an external wireframe.

Important!

This section supports image files only. If you are looking to upload a PDF, you can do so via the +Add files section.

 

Add an existing design

Click on the designs tab within the idea canvas.

Click on the "Add design" button and select  "Attach existing design."

In the available slide out, select as many images as you'd like to attach to the idea, and click on "Attach designs" to complete the process.

    It looks like this feature doesn't support me adding PDFs (specifically from Dropbox) - is that the case, or am I missing something?

    @Chris A PDF isn't an image file ;) If you'd like to add a PDF, you can do so via the file section. Otherwise you can also link using the generic URL option

    @Chris I've added a bit in the documentation to reflect this, thanks!

    I know ;-) But sometimes I end up with photos / scans of designs chunked together in PDFs to make them easy to transmit in a coherent set. Regardless, thanks!

    Is it possible to always show the Designs (or Files) tab? I've had to explain where to upload attachments to three people in a row today. ;)

    Hi Alexandra,
    Sections are shown as needed to avoid clutter in the page. I'll be sure to send your feedback to the team :)
