Hi , Sensive looks to be very interesting, as it tries to solve a few things Figma currently has issues with.

I gave it a quick spin, and I got a veeeery large amount of screens. As it shows not only Frames but any object on the 1st level of the drawing surface.

I would change, or provide options, to show only frames and only frames that are set to export

A search would be really nice

Supporting pages would also be really useful. I frequently have many pages, mainly to have separate presentations, and this creates issues

For a newer version of Sensive, writing back the comments would be great, as well as showing comments for a specific version or all of them

Managing versions in the comments would be awesome. As figma really lacks here, where I may want to see only comments for specific named versions, in the context of a discussion

One of the things I tried to do with integrations was to create specific components so that I can add screen info, version, status, etc, and export that to an excel to have more control for management and reporting. I easily see sensive being able to adapt to some of these concerns

Something else I looked into was to use the api to extract and auto-update images in word documents to share with our Functional Design Team. But could not get management to provide me with a dev for the heavy lifting.

This is typically my biggest hurdle, to share frequently updating screens to use for documentation.

If you consider documentation at a component level a more specialized component documentation mode would be really interesting

Hey , thanks for taking the time to share your ideas with us.
It's evident that we all face similar challenges. The majority of ideas an hurdles you mentioned already align with items we are currently building and plan to release on a weekly basis.

Great work on shipping this app! Really love how the community builds off of each other 💪. After watching the intro video, I was wondering how you envision teams using this service? It seems like there is a lot of overlap with what Figma already offers (version history, sharing files, commenting and live collaboration). How does this compliment Figma?

Hi Miguel! Great question. The features that Figma offers work for internal teams that are familiar with the tool. That’s awesome. We don’t plan on changing that.
Our hope is to help larger organizations make their design process more open and inclusive. This manifests in many ways:
* Something as simple as a live stream on a TV at the office that anyone on the company can see and engage with.
* Design teams being able to manage and visualize progress at a more granular level.
* Developers specifically, gain access to the latest designs and documentation even if they’re not familiar with the tool.
