Import a prototype

To start testing with Maze, you have to import a prototype. Maze supports InVision, Marvel, and Sketch prototypes.

Learn how to import your InVision, Marvel, or Sketch prototype.

When you import a prototype, a project will automatically be created. A project is based on a prototype link and can include more than one tests based on different variations of your prototype. We call these tests: mazes.

Create your maze

A maze includes a list of missions for your testers to complete. A mission is a task that you have to define by setting a title, a description, and the expected path to success.

Read our detailed guide to creating your first maze.

Maze options

You can edit the settings of your maze in Options. To access your maze options, click on the wheel sign in the top corner.

Maze Options

Here are the options available for a maze:

Change intro image: set a custom image for your maze
Change intro title: set a custom title for your maze

Learn more about customizing your maze.

Password protection: set a password to protect your maze
Recording: stop or restart recording interactions with your maze
Delete your maze.


When you create your maze, you can view what the testing interface will look like before starting testing. Click on Preview to check your maze.

Please note, previewing your maze doesn't record interactions. To start recording interactions, move to the next step.

Start testing

When you're ready to begin testing, click on Start Testing. This will set your maze live. Make sure you're completely happy with your maze before starting testing because you won't be able to edit it when it's live.

By clicking on I understand, send my maze live, your maze will be ready for testing.
