Maze now allows you to test your Sketch prototypes

Great news: Maze now supports Sketch prototypes.

Today, we are excited to announce that Maze now supports Sketch prototypes. 🎉

We've listened closely to our community and implemented support for Sketch so you can test how the design of your product performs with real users at the prototype phase.

We believe in empowering all product teams with data at the design level—and now more of you will be able to easily conduct user testing, gather actionable insights, and finally settle design debates. No matter the prototyping tool you use: InVision, Figma, Marvel, or Sketch, we've got you covered.

Read on for details.

💎 Prototyping in Sketch

Ever since the release of its Prototyping feature, Sketch has made it seamless and easy to create a prototype. With Sketch Cloud, you're also able to share your prototype with colleagues, friends, and the world. As such, it paved the way for another essential step in the design process: user testing.

🤝 Getting started

Testing your Sketch prototype is very easy. Start by importing your prototype to Maze.

Note: make sure your prototype has a public link before importing to Maze. Set the sharing setting to Anyone with the link and people you've invited.

How to set the sharing setting of your Sketch prototype

To import a prototype, go to your Sketch Cloud account and copy the link to the prototype you want to test. Next, open the Projects page in your Maze dashboard. There, paste the link to the prototype in the entry box and create a new project.

If you don’t have a Maze account just yet, set up one in a few simple steps or simply paste your prototype link directly on our website.

⚡ Create a maze to start testing

To test your Sketch prototype, you have to create a maze. A maze is a collection of missions and questions that testers have to complete. Each mission consists of a task, a description, and the path you want testers to take, or what we call the Expected path.

Set a task, description, and the expected path to create a mission

You can find more about how to create your first maze in our documentation.

We're excited to hear your feedback, so do share with us your thoughts and experience with Maze. We’d also love to know which prototyping tool you want Maze to support next, tweet us @mazedesignHQ or contact us at hello@maze.design.

If you have any questions about testing your Sketch prototype or anything else regarding Maze, you can always chat with us via our in-app chat on our website. Happy testing!
