What is a URL Asset?

A URL asset can be used during your mobile or web test any time you would like the contributor to be taken directly to a new URL. This helps streamline the testing experience and ensures contributors can easily follow the test plan when it includes additional URLs.

When should I use a URL Asset?

Many UserTesting customers create tests that compare multiple alternative designs. For example, they might compare 1) an existing webpage with newly designed options, 2) two or more existing webpages, or 3) a company webpage with competitor web pages. In these or other comparative tests, the goal is to understand customer preferences in order to make changes that present the best experiences. 

How to Launch URL Assets

Create a new website or prototype test and select your audience.

Next, you'll set up the test scenario and the starting URL. Then, begin adding tasks and questions to create a test plan for your contributor to follow.

At the point in the test where the contributor should review a new URL, click and drag the URL asset to your Test plan.

A Launch URL field will be inserted into your test plan. Type in the URL you would like the contributor to review. This URL will automatically launch at this point in the test while the contributor is completing the session.
