Say hello to Assistants! 🛎August 11, 2020 at 2:24pm (Edited 6 months ago)
Hey, all 👋 Sketch 68 is here, and with it, we've shipped a new feature we're really excited about –– Everyone, meet Assistants!
Assistants helps teams stay consistent with their design systems, by checking documents and helping you spot issues. They free you up to solve real problems, instead of wondering if a particular shade of blue in on-brand.
You can add multiple Assistants to any document — from ones that enforce your team’s design system, to others that pick up on accessibility issues or document organization.

We can't wait to see what you all build with this new feature.

Interesting feature, but I'd rather see some updates to Prototyping - auto-animation, more transitions (fade, flip, etc.), more ways to share a prototype (video, etc.), and device skins.
so agree with that statement. there are huge gaps between sketch and figma (and even XD). It's disappointing to see a feature like assistant getting priority.
I totally don't agree with you on this (hillel13013) … So why don't just use Figma or XD for satisfying your prototyping needs? Importing Sketch files is easy enough and you have free versions available?
Assistants adds something that's new, fresh and totally different. It adds the ability for teams to really amp up their working environment. I myself have learned many important rules just using some of them and it actually makes me a better designer. 😺
And I say this even as I use mostly Figma in my day to day work
