Validate feature naming

Clear up confusion with product and feature names by asking for user input. Validate your naming decisions with a quick test to determine whether the purpose matches the title.

What you’ll learn:

Does your audience understand the purpose of your feature by the name chosen?

Have they any misconceptions about what the feature actually does? Uncover areas of confusion and map out your next steps to tackle it.

Does your audience understand the purpose of the feature with the added context our Conditions feature provides?

Look for pain points and struggles your users may have with disconnected product copy.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is feature usability testing?

Usability testing is the process of testing your product with real people by getting them to complete a list of tasks while observing and noting their interactions. With feature usability testing, the same principles apply but rather than testing your product as a whole, the focus is on a specific feature to learn what improvements might be needed.

Why is information architecture important in UX?

Information architecture is incredibly important to your product—poorly categorized or labelled information can affect your product’s usability, lead to customer frustrations, and cause low adoption rates of certain features.

Testing whether your information architecture makes sense is therefore beneficial to both your users and your organization as a whole.
