About Seamless recorder

  • This recorder is only for unmoderated desktop tests.
  • Allows Invite Network contributors to click on a link and immediately start taking a test.
  • Live Conversation sessions use Zoom, so Live Conversation Invite Network contributors won't use the seamless recorder.
    • They'll need to be able to join a Zoom meeting on their computer or mobile device.

Note: If you prefer to have UserTesting recruit and manage the test, you can still do so through our Professional Services group.



How it works

  • Contributors have the option to download a Chrome, Safari, and Firefox browser extension that collects the desktop data needed to map contributor web journeys
  • The contributor will see an Install extension option after they agree to take the test.
    💡Note: This download is optional to help maintain healthy completion rates of Invite Network tests; contributors can still provide their perspectives without downloading the extension. 
  • With the seamless desktop recorder, your contributors only need a test link to get started.
  • By clicking the link, the contributor will automatically begin sharing their perspective without downloading any software or extensions.
  • This creates a seamless experience for the contributor and gets you faster feedback. 
  • Invite Network videos utilize a tab structure allowing contributors one tab for the tasks and another tab for the testing asset.
  • Testing prompts will never block testing assets.
  • Once the test is completed, you can review Interactive Path Flows and other visualizations to see which screens contributors navigated to, to complete a task.

Seamless recorder use cases for Invite Network

  • Capture feedback from your B2B customers: Since our recorder doesn't require a download of any external software, targeting B2B personas within corporate firewalls is possible. 
  • Intercept users for feedback in real-time: Create an Invite Network test to generate a test link. Add this link to any in-product messaging tools, live chat software, or anywhere you can embed a link. Contributors will only need to click on the link to start giving feedback—without ever leaving their browser.
  • Generate team member engagement with internal testing: Solicit employee and internal audiences' feedback. The seamless recorder makes it possible to get team member feedback regardless of internal security measures.
