Overview

With any testing, you want to gather accurate insights quickly and efficiently. Your dashboard is designed to help you easily build, launch and manage all your tests in one place.

Your Dashboard

Depending on your subscription plan and user permissions, you may see one of two dashboard layouts below.

If you have the dashboard on top, you have the ability to create tests from scratch, schedule live conversations, and upload videos. Depending on your subscription, you may also be able to create tests using Quick Answers.

If you see the dashboard shown on the bottom, you have the ability to create tests using Quick Answers and schedule live conversations.

Creating tests 

You can create tests right from your dashboard using the New button.

You will maintain access to create unmoderated tests from scratch. To create a better experience as you build your test, Quick Answers has been integrated into the platform. Depending on the type of account you have, the look of your dashboard (and the features that you have access to) may differ.

A dropdown menu shows all the ways that you can create a test including from scratch, using Quick Answers, or by scheduling a live interview with participants. Depending on your account, you may have access to one or more of these methods of launching a test. 

  • Create an unmoderated test - remote unmoderated testing is when participants complete pre-determined and self-guided activities using a design or interface on their own, without a person moderating or overseeing the test. The participant decides when and where they complete the test and uses an online tool (such as UserTesting) to participate, provide feedback, and record the session for researchers to view later. For more information on creating an unmoderated test visit Remote unmoderated usability test.

  • Create a Quick Answers test - Quick Answers are preformatted tests of unmoderated tests that you can quickly launch to get fast feedback and insights. The tasks and questions are written for you by UserTesting, and designed to answer the most common product or marketing challenges. You may or may not have access to Quick Answers depending on your account settings. To learn more about the available Quick Answers and how to use them, visit Using Quick Answers

  • Schedule a live conversation - Live Conversation allows you to create and launch a live interview to talk directly to recruited participants or your own customers with results available within hours. To learn more about running a live conversation, visit Live Conversation Overview

Creating a test from Quick Answers 

Other users—who only have access to Quick Answers and Live Conversation—will see the dashboard below. From here, you can access your previous tests or select one of the two options to start a new test:

Depending on the subscription you have, you may also see the General tab on your dashboard.

The General tab allows you to access Workspaces which help you to better organize your tests and control access. You can move tests around, or have an administrator create additional Workspaces. You may also see tabs to access tests, test drafts, highlight reels, and folders. 


To learn more organizing tests and controlling access, visit Workspaces.

List View for all tests

The dashboard lists each test as a single line item, including the number of sessions and a note on how many videos are unwatched. This makes it easy to quickly scan through your studies and easily spot when new videos have come in. You can use the dropdown on the right to filter by test creator.
