When completing a mission, testers may take different paths than the expected one you set. You can add multiple expected paths for a mission to record all paths as direct success.

Maze records every path a tester takes and categorizes them into:

Direct success: tester takes the same path you set
Indirect success: tester takes an undefined path but reaches final screen
Give up / bounce: tester leaves your maze or gives up mission.

But if a mission has more than one correct way to be completed, you might want to add different expected paths.

All expected paths you define for a mission will be used to measure the success metric in Maze.

What to know before you set expected paths for a mission

Set a minimum of two screens for every path
You can change the start screen of all expected paths in the first path
The last screen of any path shouldn't be reused during a path. More about this here.

How to add multiple paths to a mission

Add path

You can add multiple paths when you create your missions.


Importing a prototype
Creating missions in draft mode
For every mission, you can add as many expected paths as you need

Consult our guide on creating your first maze.

Analyzing paths in your maze report

When you have more than one direct path to complete a mission, you can choose the path you want to analyze in your maze report.


Open your maze report
Go to mission card
Choose the path you want to analyze under Active path or by clicking on the path in the report

Choose path in report
