My idea: "Numbering screen" feature in Zeplin

almost 3 years ago from , UX designer

Here is an idea I had: show screen numbers in Zeplin to speed up my workflow. https://dribbble.com/shots/4447892-Zeplin-Numbering-screens

I wrote an article (in Italian, English version coming soon) where you can see more design and prototypes: https://medium.com/thesignof/come-migliorare-zeplin-e-vivere-felici-be1eb9575b2c

I would like to read some feedback from you.

    What's the purpose of the number?

      I rename artboards in sketch placing a number before each screen in order to have them numbered and ordered in zeplin. This helps me to explain to the developers each screen saying "go to page 02delivery pagelogin" My problem is: when I remove, add or move a screen in my zeplin project I need to update screen numbers to not have a messy dashboard. And now I imagined how a native feature for zeplin could help me.

      Feel free to ask more questions if you want. Happy to answer!

        Just curious, why do you number the artboards in the first place? I guess it helps when exporting as pngs (I do this too), but not really on Zeplin. I ask this because in Zeplin you can rearrange them as needed, so they'll be in the order you wanted them to be either way right? If you had them numbered like in your idea, the numbers wouldn't match after deleting a screen either way, so the number reference wouldn't stay the same...or am I missing something?

          I started renaming them because of the PNG export (now we export directly to zeplin and invision, no more JPGs). I still rename them because when I explain my work to the developers, I send them the Zeplin link and there I start saying "go to page 02...". It's easier because most of the time they are on skype or on the phone with me and there are several people and it's the simplest way to take everyone in the exact page in a second.
