At Maze, we believe user insights shouldn’t be siloed. We envision a future where everyone, from product to marketing, are empowered to test, learn and act, rapidly.
That’s why we’re excited to announce Templates, a library of pre-built tests and surveys, created and used by industry professionals that are ready for you to copy, customize and share with your own users.
Templates will help teams resolve resource restraints that keep them from testing early and often; by giving everyone the confidence and ability to source and access insights.
With Maze you can test anything from prototypes to copy, or round up user feedback—all in one place. Now, Templates empowers you and your team to go from inspiration to action in a matter of minutes.
Our template library was designed with the whole product team in mind and makes it easy for anyone to get started.
Click ‘Templates’ in your project dashboard next to ‘New Project’ and you’ll be taken to the template library.
Once you’ve selected a template, you’ll find more details about how to use it and a preview of what your users will see. Click ‘Use template’ to copy and create as a maze project in your account. If the template requires a prototype you’ll be ushered to add one in these next steps.
To learn more about how to get started with templates, visit our help center.
The library will keep on growing so be sure to check back in for new inspiration. In the meantime, if you’d be interested in helping us build an amazing collection of templates, we’d love to hear your ideas and feedback!Read More
At Maze, we’re big believers in bringing our users’ voice into our decision making and this is why we review user feedback regularly. We noticed a common theme among many feature requests: the need to create custom, dynamic flows based on the testers’ responses.
And this is why we’re excited to announce Conditions 🎉
Before Conditions, testers completed the sequence of blocks in a maze in order. Now, you can apply conditions to your mazes to create contextual, dynamic flows based on testers’ input. This means you can easily send them on a custom path after a completed mission, follow up with your testers, ask screening questions before they get started, and more. The result? Richer data for you and a customized user experience for your testers. It’s a win-win.
“Conditions can act like a ‘moderator’ in a moderated test. Based on the tester’s responses and behaviors, the maze can respond in context and create a more dynamic, personal experience. In the end, our users are able to collect richer insights.” - Arjen Harris, Director of Product at Maze
When creating research surveys, you can define your respondents’ paths based on their responses. This enables you to create dynamic, customized surveys for your audience. For example, if you ask your testers a Yes/No question, you can send them to different follow-up questions based on their response. Ultimately, this means that you are able to collect more contextual data.
Add screening questions at the beginning of your maze to ensure only the right type of profiles complete your maze. Based on their responses, you can decide whether to send them to the next question or directly to the Thank You Screen to exit the maze. This ensures that only qualified testers respond to your mazes and, most importantly, you collect relevant data.
Add a Legal Screen block (Enterprise only) at the beginning of your maze to get your testers’ consent. Based on their response you can send them to the next block to start the maze or have them exit the maze directly via the Thank You Screen. This ensures that your testers are aware of and have agreed to your terms and conditions.
How are you going to use Conditions? Whether it's one of the use cases we covered in this article or a completely new one, let us know @mazedesignhq.
Note: Unlimited Conditions are available on all paying plans.
Here at Maze, our goal is to bring user testing to every design team. For testing to really happen at scale and be a part of every design project, Maze lives where designers work. That’s the reason we integrate with some of the best tools on the market, and we’re excited to add Figma to that list.
When you finish creating a Figma prototype, you can import it into Maze to start testing. Follow these quick steps to import your prototype.
When you paste your prototype link into Maze, you’ll create a new project with a draft test based on your Figma prototype. Check out our official guide to using Maze to learn more about testing your prototype with Maze.Read More
