Editing a test after launch

Overview

What happens if you identify changes or updates to be made to a test after you have already launched it? Do you have to start all over and create a new test?

Fortunately, in the UserTesting app you can make edits to your test after you've launched it. Why might you need to make changes to a test? Let's review:

Note: If you don't need to make updates but would like to add more participants, you can do so using the link underneath your test name when on the test summary page.

Editing Screener Questions 

If you need to edit your screener questions, you can do so by clicking the "edit screener" link that is underneath the Session tab when looking at your test details.

When you're happy with your questions, you can click update to save any changes made. 

Editing tasks and questions

If you want to make changes to the tasks and questions in your test, you can select options on your dashboard to reveal a drop-down menu with additional options.

From here, you can edit your starting instructions such as the starting URL (if applicable) or the scenario you want to present to participants. 

Next, you can edit any of your tasks or questions.

Note: Another way to edit a test is to stop further participants from taking your current test, create a copy of the test, and then edit and launch that copy.

Best Practice for editing a test after launch

When you make edits to your test, any participant currently taking the test will continue to see the published version of the test.  

Once you save the edits, the next person attempting your screener questions or starting your test will see the edited version. You may want to make a note on those sessions that used the earlier version of the test.
