Best Practices

Did you know that you can publish an RP file to multiple Axure Cloud links? This can be helpful when you want to maintain different versions of a prototype for different audiences, such as your design team, your developers, and your stakeholders.

Agile's weak points largely stem from its iterative approach to doing product design in code, which can leave teams without a clear goal when making decisions, planning resources, and driving consensus and understanding. Prototyping at the beginning of a project can help mitigate some of these Agile drawbacks. Read on to learn how.

Agile has been big for a while, but it has a number of blind spots baked in to its core practices. Let's take a look at how Agile came to be what it is today so we can better understand the roots of its flaws and find a way forward from here.

Now that you can host Sketch assets right alongside Axure RP projects on Axure Cloud, how do you manage it all? We’ve put together a few tips and best practices based on conversations with customers as well as how we use Axure Cloud here at Axure HQ.

Users love simple and intuitive products, but the design process required to get there takes considerable thought and judgement. When you’re starting work on a new software product or a new feature, the prototyping stage is a critical step, as it enables you to test product concepts before investing the effort to build them out.

Prototypes are handy as internal deliverables that communicate your ideas visually and interactively. But if that’s all you’re using them for, you’re missing out on the benefits they can offer in the form of user feedback. Conducting user testing with your prototypes is valuable because you can’t be sure you have a winning design until you have real data to back it up.

Did you know that Axure RP makes it easy to store user-entered data and then reuse it across widgets and pages in your prototype? There are actually several good ways to do this, but one sure-fire technique is to use a variable.

This guide pulls together a number of accessibility issues worthy of your consideration as you develop your next Axure RP prototype, along with some simple steps you can take in the tool to pilot your project toward an outcome that's more friendly for all types of people to consume.

The Notes feature in Axure RP is an easy way to document and communicate the intent and functionality of your designs. This can be especially useful as the developers are implementing the solution or when QA is writing test scripts based on the design.
