Test planning

What do you want your test to do? What questions can you ask to get the most accurate results?


Test contributors

Who do you want to take your test? Are you planning on using your own contributors or the UserTesting Contributor Network? 

UserTesting Contributor Network

The UserTesting Contributor Network gives you access to a diverse and global on-demand group of study contributors. Our network is made up of real people, carefully selected after a thorough application process, who are continually rated by our customers, assuring the highest quality results. 

Invite Network

Invite Network gives UserTesting customers the ability to create and launch a study with anyone, anytime, on-demand. The feature is completely self-service, helping customers tap into insights from employees, existing customers, industry experts, and people within unique demographics faster and easier than ever before. 

Custom Network

Custom Network is an easy way to capture feedback from your customers, partners, employees, and more, all through the UserTesting Platform. Invite anyone to join your network through a custom, co-branded experience—your test contributors are quickly onboarded, and ready to test in no time. UserTesting takes care of test distribution or scheduling Live Conversations, and handles notifications, incentive payments, and more.
