My Panel: Overview


At a Glance

My Panel allows you to invite anyone to join your panels through a custom, co-branded experience—your test participants are quickly onboarded and ready to test in no time. UserTesting takes care of test distribution or scheduling live conversations, handles notifications, incentive payments, and more.


Key Features

  • Create a profile form with the Profile Form Builder. The form is made up of attribute types—questions asking for information you want people to provide—such as number of children, or kinds of pets—in the way you want it—such as no more than 15 characters or numbers only. These attribute types become the filters you use when selecting people for your test.
  • Send a link to the people you want to join your panel. They create accounts and sign up for the panel, filling out the form to provide the requested information. You can also customize your invitations with the Build-Your-Own Test Invitations you design in the test plan editor.
  • You can even add a referral code to this link for more flexibility with your tests. For example, share the link and referral code with fans on Facebook and Twitter to uncover any differences between people on both sites. Or share the link and referral code with people you meet at a conference, or fans in a loyalty program. To learn more about referral codes, see My Panel: Create a Panel.

Here’s what people see when they click the link you send them:

Once people create accounts and profiles, they can provide the information you requested.

When you launch tests, use the filters you created in the Profile Form Builder to find the right people for your tests.

Using the filters above as an example, you can select people based on what kind of pet they have or whether they have children within a specific age range. When you’re ready, launch the test to your panel.
