Customize your tests, tasks and even more fun

A few moments ago we released a major update of Usabilla. We know for sure this new release will make usability testing with Usabilla even more easier for both you and your participants. We’ve improved the usability of our test interface and added some interesting new features to extend your testing possibilities.

A short overview of the most important new features in this release:

Easier feedback with an improved test interface

We’ve simplified the test interface for your participants. We’re sure the new interface makes it even easier to participate in a test and share feedback. We removed unnecessary clutter from the toolbar and combined points and notes. Users can simply add a point to answer your questions and attach a note to this point if they want to share some additional comments. Usabilla tests currently got an average conversion rate of more than 30 percent. With these new improvements we hope to improve the conversion of your tests even more.

Help participants by providing additional context per task

You can now add a short introduction for each task. This short intro can be used to provide some additional context for your participants.

Some examples:

  • You want to book a trip to Amsterdam in October. You’re searching for a hotel in the price range of 80 to 100 dollar. Where would you click to search a hotel?
  • We would love to know what you think of our new homepage. Please let us know what your think of this page. Click on the screen to add a note.

Give users some additional info for each task

Customize your introduction and thank-you page

Your tests need a clear introduction. You can now improve a test by customizing the introduction. You can use basic HTML for markup and some simple tags to automatically include page thumbnails, the number of tasks, etc. The Thank-You page can also be customized. This page is shown after a participant finished a test. You can use the page to thank your participants for their input or to point them to pages or forms.

Combine one-click-tasks and standard tasks in one test

A few weeks ago we launched ‘One-Click-Tests’. A one click tests is very simple test, where users can only use one point to answer a question. You can use this method for example to test first impressions or to measure the time it takes to accomplish a certain task. You can now combine one-click-tasks and standard tasks in one test. You can define for each task if it’s a standard or a one-click-task.

Add an introduction per task

Improved results and task timers

We gave the results page a small facelift. The layout of the page changed a bit and we added some new features to analyze your test results. You can use our selector to select a specific area of your page and check the stats for that area (how many users clicked in a specific area?). We now also track time per task. This helps you to compare different tasks and pages.

Upgrade your plan

We’re going to launch paid plans in the near future. We’ll offer different plans, varying in price between $49 and $950 per year.

You can continue to use Usabilla for free, but your reports will be limited to 25 participants per test.

Share interesting cases

Please let us know if you need any help with a test case or want to share your findings. We would love to learn from your questions and usability challenges.

We’ve pushed out just a major update of our online testsuite. Check your account to test our new interface and features. A short overview of the most important new features in our current release:

Test in your own language

We now support Arabic, Chinese, Dutch, English, Estonian, German, Hungarian, Indonesian, Spanish, Swedish, and Turkish tests. We’ve translated our test interface in multiple languages. You can add questions or tasks in your own language.

One-Click-Tests

Do you make a great first impression? With a One-Click-Test you can ask your users anything you like, but give them only one click to answer. For example: “Where would you search for information about our plans?”. A users’ first click is saved instantly after clicking anywhere on the screen.

One-Click-Tests for first impressions

Generate screenshots on-the-fly

You no longer need to manually create a screenshot of your webpage to create a test. When you add a new page to your test you can now specify the URL of the page and we’ll generate a screenshot on-the-fly. This makes creating a test even more easier. Our screenshot generator unfortunately does not support Flash and could sometimes choke on a webpage, but should work fine to generate fullpage screenshots in a blink in all other cases.

Nifty new visualizations

We’ve updated the visualizations of your test results. The new visualizations should help you to process your feedback more easily. You can now plot the results of multiple tasks on one page and change the colors of your charts.

Plot multiple questions in one chart

Create your own heatmaps

Export your data as plain text, CSV, and XML

Save your data as plain text, CSV or XML and import it in Excel, Numbers, SPSS, or any other software you like. Feel free to send us a request for other filetypes / formats.
