Here's what your contributors will see when invited to join a study set up using Invite Network:

Step 1: The Invitation

Invite Network contributors will first be notified that they've been selected as a contributor by you. Typically this is done via email, but the invitation can be shared in any way that enables you to include a link to the test (e.g. Slack, company intranet, instant messenger, etc.).

Contributors will be provided with whatever information you'd like to share—a handy email template is provided for your use when you set up your test—along with a link that grants them access to the test. If you'd like to include the Terms of Use, the link can be found here.


Step 2: Installing the Mobile App

If your test contributors are using a desktop, they do not need to download anything; our seamless recorder will allow contributors to click on a link and immediately start taking a test. The same applies to Invite Network contributors who use Zoom for Live Conversations.

If your contributors are using a mobile device, they will need to install the UserTesting mobile app for their iOS or Android device to participate in your test. After a contributor clicks the link to get started, they'll be guided through the appropriate steps.

Step 3: Testing Tips

Before your contributors begin their test, they'll be given a few tips to help ensure their test runs smoothly, including pointers on using the recorder, disabling notifications, and setting up the microphone.


Step 4: Completing the Test

Once the test contributor is ready, they're free to begin sharing their insights! After they've completed their test, they'll be thanked for participating and notified that their test has been submitted to you.
