 The following steps will help you effectively launch a prototype study.

Step 1. Log in to your dashboard

Log in to your dashboard.

Step 2. Create a new study

Select the New dropdown from your dashboard, then select Create an unmoderated test to create a brand new study.

You can also Create a test from a template as well. You can learn more about templates here.  

Step 3. Select the type of study you'd like to conduct

In this case, we want to study a website, so select Test a Prototype.


We support many different prototyping tools. 

Step 4. Choose your audience

You can test with people from our panels or your own. You can also use My Recruit to send an invitation to anyone you want. In this example, we'll select Panels.


When you arrive on the overview page, you have the option to start building your audience or to get started creating your test plan. We'll choose Select Audience first.


You can use any saved audiences or create from scratch.

To create from scratch, 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.

Step 5. Build Test Plan

Once you have returned to the overview page, select Build Test Plan to get started on test creation. 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

The overview page should now display your audience targeting as well as the test plan. Review the information and remember to give your test a name. When you are satisfied, click the Launch Test button.
