We support many different prototyping tools.
When you arrive on the overview page, you have the option to start building tester groups or to get started creating your test plan.
For the purpose of this article, we will start with selecting test participants.
Step 4. Select Participants
Once you click on Select Participants, you will be directed to a page dedicated to choosing your target audience. If you have questions about creating tester groups with the UserTesting panel, please visit this knowledgebase article to learn more.
Select the filter(s) that you need by checking the box(es) in the right sidebar and then adjusting each filter as needed.
Scrolling down, you can also add screener questions by dragging the Screener Question element in from the right sidebar. Screeners help you pinpoint down to the precise audiences you are seeking.
When you are happy with your filters and screeners, you can click the Done button to return to the overview page.

Provide a starting URL as well as any scenario-related details to set the stage for your test participant. Then, select the elements that you want to include by dragging them into your test plan from the right sidebar.
Once you are done creating your test plan, you can click the Done button to return to the overview page.
Step 6. Review and launch your test
