How To Share Your Document With Clients & Stakeholders

Hi, everyone in this video. I'm gonna show you how to export your document to maybe your client or your stakeholders, maybe your product manager or line manager or your studio manager, whoever that person is. OK? Um We've talked about sharing a link. We'll do that towards the end because we've already done that. Um I'll show you some unique things that you can do. OK? One of them is exporting uh your frames. So I'm on my page here that I want export. I'm gonna go up to my fig icon in the top left file. There's one in here says frames the export or exports to frames. Oh man, frames to PDF. OK. So click on that. The, it's gonna be good, it's gonna be bad. The bad bit is that, that is considered a frame. There's lots of things even though that is uh auto layout that's considered a frame. So we're gonna have to tidy up. We've been avoiding tidy up for a long time, but hey, we're gonna have to soon. So there's my PDF. I'm gonna hit save. OK? And where is it there? It is there. It is a very ...

messy PDF. OK. Is that went through, that went through all sorts of stuff and then, hey, this is the things I want so I could delete the pages I don't want. Ok, depends on your kind of needs. I guess what I need to do is go, you, my friend needs to be that my mobile NAV, I'll just delete because I kind of need it as part of this um uh document that thing that I'll leave in there. This one, I didn't use that one. These two here I didn't want anymore. OK? And these guys here, what I'm gonna do is you are gonna become clipped content. Normally it doesn't matter this particular one. OK? For export PDF S we want to clip the content. Anything else these guys will leave in there cos I don't want to delete them. This is junk from earlier on other junk that won't export, but we're gonna have to do it at some stage. OK? So now when we export, it'll just be a bit Tidier and we can delete the pages like I wanna keep that around. Let's have a look. So a whole lot Tidier. So I've got these two that I'd have to delete. I'd open up an acrobat and remove them. OK? What you've got in your machine for working with PDF S? But you'll notice now this is all tightly integrated. OK? And I've got all my pages. So you might think of another reason you might use this K PDF. You might be using fig A to do presentations. It's really common to use the frame tool. And over here there's presentations. OK? For different slides. That's a generic kind of uh HD format for a slide. And you can totally use your skills here just to use fig A for presentation. Cos you've got good at it. You like it, it's fast, it's easy to update, easy to share. People are using fig A for all sorts of things. Another useful, I wouldn't say it's useful. It's something that I plan to show you. So I'm gonna show you it's the slice tool. OK? So the frame tools, what we've used loads slice tool which uses the really good shortcut of S which should be scale is the slice tool that nobody uses. I don't think FIG A has any documentation on it. It might disappear. Um What does it do? I can see when you'd use it. I just never have OK? You want these two frames to go out? OK? You just draw a box around them. It's called slice one. OK? You can give it a name. This might be my uh you know, some sort of task flow for, I don't know the login task flow. OK? And you can select it over here like we do lots of the things. Can you see it just appeared at the top of my layers list. OK? I can add export settings like I've done earlier and say I wanna export this as a JPEG or I, I don't think it supports PDF. Let's check it. So let's say it's a JPEG. I don't want a suffix on it. So I'm just gonna go to zero and I'm just gonna delete it and this is just gonna be a one X size or I can give it a specific width. Ok? Let's say it has to fit for something. It's going to a website into some sort of gallery and it needs to definitely be 480 for some reason. OK? And it needs to be 480 W cool. And let's export it and supporting PDF S is currently unsupported. So it's gonna minus it. Here we go. OK? We're gonna export just that little slide. Let's have a look at what it did. Tas flow log in. OK? So it might be just a wait. Whoa uh 100 and 80 pixels is pretty blurry. That was my fault. It should be like 1000 and 480. So yeah, that's what the slice tool does. Now, those are ways of getting it out. It's kind of a generic way of getting out. There's gonna be times where you need that. OK? If you are sharing with your kind of colleague or client or actually not colleague client, somebody that's not a UX designer. OK? Often it's better just to share the link. OK? And say I don't want you to be editable. I want you to be viewing, OK? Because I don't want you to move things around, give them the email address or you can just copy the link. You don't have to email them to them, just write an email and copy this in. OK? You can link to a specific area that slice. OK? Let's say you want it started at this animation. OK? So you can say you share and link to the selected frame. It's automatically selected it because I selected a first frame. OK? So you can do those things. So copy that link. OK? I'm gonna just paste it in a text document here ready for my emails later on. Um And another link you might send to them is the actual prototype rather than the actual working doc you might want to share them the prototype. OK? So let's go to present OK. I'm using this flow here and I'm gonna say uh share prototype from this window and I can copy it. It'll select the prototype to start with. It's gonna be very similar to the other one you can from this link, get to the prototype. I'll show you that but this one will go straight there. So often I'll even though you can get to prototyping, OK. From this one here, lots of double clicking and I will send them two separate links just so that makes it easy for people. OK? So let's open this one up. I'm gonna open up a browser. Let's have a look. Now we did this way, way ago. So just the basics to cover, they can ignore this and they really want them to sign up, but they don't have to, ok. If they want to comment, they can log in with a free email address, but they can view it without doing anything. They can prototype it without looking at anything. So there's that pretty low barrier uh viewing your work if you are sending it to them ready, who remembers this? It was a while ago and gone. OK. So that's how to share your document with kind of clients and stakeholders, not really other UX designers, definitely not developers. OK? It's a great way for sharing designs, images and being able to do some commenting that comes back and forth from fig M. All right. That is gonna be it for this video.
