Axure Cloud

Axure has always worked to facilitate communication between software professionals through interactive prototyping. For most of our history, that has meant building prototypes in Axure RP. But now with Axure Cloud's new Build feature, anyone can create interactive prototypes from Sketch and image files right in the web browser!

The Axure Cloud desktop app allows you to publish artboards from Sketch directly to Axure Cloud. Now you can share and inspect your designs right alongside your team's Axure RP prototypes — whether you use Axure RP or not. And with the new Build feature, you can turn your Sketch artboards into interactive prototypes without ever leaving Axure Cloud!

Project overviews for RP 9 files now include a thumbnail preview of each page; and you can extract style and layout information from the widgets in your designs.

Our goal for Axure RP 9 was to modernize Axure RP’s workflows, capabilities, and interface. Nearly every area of the tool has been touched to make prototyping in Axure RP more efficient and intuitive. With that same goal in mind, we've also made some big changes to Axure Share.

Publishing to Axure Share is a handy way to share the HTML output of your Axure RP prototypes with your teammates and stakeholders. You click the "Share" button in Axure RP, hit "Publish", and get back a shareable link to the prototype. Bing, bang, boom!

After our Slack and HipChat Axure Share integrations launched last year, more than a few of you got hold of us to request that we consider a similar tie-in for Microsoft Teams. Today, we're happy to announce its debut! Head over to our Microsoft Teams Connector support page for details on how to get it set up.

We have a time-sensitive news announcement: Axure Share will become HTTPS-only by early next year. While the option to redirect to HTTPS links for your Axure Share content has been available for some time, we've now decided to enforce HTTPS for everything hosted on the service.

Email notifications for Axure Share have been available for some time. But now, as of earlier this month, you have the option to send your notifications to a Slack channel of your choice!
