Previewing a test will give you a full testing experience from the user’s perspective. Doing so will give you a better idea of how your task instructions will appear for the testing participants. In order to launch a preview, you’ll be prompted to install the UserTesting screen recorder.
Do I need to preview a test before launching it?
No, you don't. We even find that some corporate firewall settings block your ability to preview a test. If your work network doesn’t allow you to install such software, please feel free to use the old Preview Test feature, or launch a pilot test (1 user) and review the video before launching more.
Is it recording anything?
No. Please rest assured that it doesn’t record anything from your computer and you don’t need to have a microphone for it to work.
Does "Preview Test" work for mobile tests?
At this time, we're unable to provide a preview functionality for mobile tests.
I'm having trouble launching the preview.
We find most preview-related errors are due to corporate network restrictions. We suggest trying to launch your preview from a guest wifi network, if available, or speaking to your IT department.
