I would like to be able to nest a board or a frame from one board inside another board (a smart link).
Basically it would be like the Fig-Miro plugin functionality but between board and with the ability to have auto update.
I want that whenever the nested board or frame is updated the visual changes in the board will trickle up to the board it is nested in. Think of it as a visual window to another board that updates upon board load.
I don’t need to be able to edit the nested board or frame while in the hosting board so the link between the boards in visual only.
It would be great if I can choose to keep the updating link or sever the link or make the update automatic.
Sometimes the work that I do is cross domains. Now every board is a domain of its own.
The ability to view an updated information from another board is very valuable.
So why not copy paste? Because it requires a lot of maintenance and going back and forth between the boards.
How the flow will look like?
- Go to host board
- Create a frame
- Select the frame
- Link to external board
- Select external board
- Entire board/frame in board
- The frame will show the board or the frame in the hosting board as an uneditable element with the control of Sizing and cropping only.
