How to add developers to your prototyping workflow
Adding the development team to your design workflow is easy with Justinmind’s developer-friendly interface. Follow these steps to give your development team read-only access to all your Justinmind prototypes.
Setting up a developer as a Justinmind collaborator
To add a developer as a collaborator, simply to go your Justinmind online account.
In your online account, navigate to the Collaborators tab and then the Developers sub tab.
Select the ‘Create a new developer’ button. Add the email, first and last name of the person you wish to add as a developer, and click ‘Create developer’.
The person whose email you have entered will then receive an activation email. The email contains a link to activate the developer collaborator by having them input their username (their email address by default) and choose a password.
They will then be taken to the Justinmind download page, to download and install Justinmind in order to access your prototype.
Note that you can also import a list of developers from a .CSV file by clicking on the ‘Import developers from CSV’ option in the same tab.
Sharing your prototype with developers
Once you’ve created your prototype and want to share it with developers, there are two ways that you can do this:
- Save As and send the .vp file directly to the development team via email, Slack, Skype etc.
- Publish your prototype to your online account by sharing it in the cloud with Justinmind’s Teamwork features. Then, share it with the developer. Note that for developers to collaborate on a shared prototype (to modify the prototype directly), they will need to be paying users.
Make a developer a prototyping user
If you wish to make a developer a prototyping user, go to your online account. Select the ‘Make this developer a user’ option from the Actions drop down.
You’ll see that the number of Current Users under your Account Status on the right-hand side will increase. Note that only the Account Owner can make this change.
