We've found many of Sympli Handoff's UX team users are not only using it for design handoff to developers and quicker development, but also for storyboarding and artboard presentations. With our sorting and filtering features, teams can better share screen transitions and understand where user navigation issues may exist in their product design.
So lets take a look at how users can easily sort and filter screens from the Sympli Handoff interface and within Photoshop or Sketch to present artboards or even test user flows.
How to Reorder Screens
First of all, there's a new manual sorting feature in Sympli Handoff that helps you to arrange and filter screens after importing artwork from Photoshop or Sketch, making the reorganization of user flows and efficiency of collaboration much simpler, while also reducing the back-and-forth between new uploads from Photoshop/Sketch to arrange artboards.

Sympli Handoff offers three other ways to sort your designs; by date modified, by name, or by tag. Here's a quick demonstration of how tags work.
How to Filter Screens
Sympli Handoff doesn't use folders for organization; tags are far more flexible and semantic since you can use multiple tags per screen. To organize your project, you can tag screens using one or more tags, and then use filters to find the screen (or a collection of related screens) you're looking for much faster. For example, in the web app and Android Studio and Xcode Plugins for Sympli Handoff, you can use tags as a way of tracking the status of various screens (i.e. which have been completed and which are still in progress).
Testing User Flows & Improving Team Collaboration
Using the Sympli Handoff sorting and filter features, entire teams now have greater flexibility to arrange and organize screens, improving the team's ability to test app user flows and reducing the back-and-forth between designers, developers, and product managers.
