Adding Participants to a Test

At a Glance

When collecting feedback, you may find that you need to add more participants to a test. This article explains your options for adding those participants.

 

The need to add more participants occurs most commonly when you pilot your test to one participant, make updates (if required), and then launch the test to the remaining participants. However, you may also discover that even after a few participants have completed your test, you want some additional insights. 


To add more participants to your test, click the Add more participants link:

You can also select from the test Options dropdown:

In the dialogue, you can then add more participants to any audience that you included in your test or specify individual participants by their usernames:

Note: You will not be able to add a new audience of participants once the test is launched. For example, if you ran a test with five participants on desktops, you cannot add five participants on mobile devices after the test is launched. You would have needed to start the test with one audience of participants on their desktops and a second audience on their mobile devices. 

  • When piloting a test, include one participant from each audience you plan to include in the full test.
  • If you do find that you need a new audience, create a similar test.
