Sharing Project Outside of Your Team

In your project click on "Share" in the top right corner and select to invite them as team members, guests or with a public link:

Team Members: This person will be invited to join the team and all the projects inside it. Collaborators are paid seats who can run the prototype, leave comments, publish and export designs. Viewers are free seats that can only preview projects and leave comments (both required Anima accounts).

Guests: This person will only be able to see the specific project you are inviting them to. They do not have access to the Subscription or other Account Settings. (Anima account required)

Public Link: Share your project as a website (Anima account not required)

Commenting

When viewing the Prototype in the browser, click on the Dialog Icon to leave Comments and feedback.
