ProtoShare for Google Drive is a free, lightweight prototyping tool that lets you build and share prototypes using Google Drive. It’s not as powerful as our standalone ProtoShare product, but it can be a handy tool for quick and dirty prototyping. Install ProtoShare for Drive here. Within ProtoShare for Drive, we’ve added a ‘Post to Slack’ button:
After you click “Post to Slack”, choose a Slack channel, make your mockup publicly readable (if you want others to be able to interact with the mockup) and a screenshot of the mockup with a link to interact with it shows up in your Slack channel.
Clicking on the link brings up the mockup, allowing you to interact with it, and allowing other users to clone the design and make there own changes.
We’ve been playing with this for a few weeks now, and it’s a lot of fun, and a really quick and useful way to illustrate your ideas in Slack. Give it a try and let us know what you think!
