    Have you guys also thought about how to show the design process, showing where designs came from and which direction it goes?

    Also does Abstract include a way to keep track of the research and sketching stages of a project?

      The design process is a tricky thing, and, as we've learned from research, might be very different depending on which design team you're looking at. Our goal with Abstract has always been to imply certain workflows (not process), but keep things as open-ended as possible to cater towards however your team is structured.

      Abstract currently doesn't keep track of research and sketching (unless you do that work inside Sketch files), but it's something that's on our radar for sure.

      We've heard of a few teams putting photos of sketches, whiteboard, etc in a Sketch file as a way to capture, share, and version this work. Often it’s on it’s own page and used a reference as the design begins to take shape. We are also looking at ways we can include links/references to documentation, research, planning, etc.
