What is a Maze?

A Maze is a succession of missions for testers to complete. To create a Maze, you have to import a prototype. This will create a new project. A project has a draft Maze by default, but you can create more Mazes based on variations of your prototype.

We support InVision, Marvel and Sketch prototypes.

How to create a Maze?

Copy the link of your prototype and paste it in the entry box in your Maze dashboard.

Create a project using your prototype link

Read a step-by-step guide on how to import your InVision, Marvel or Sketch prototype.

A Maze is a collection of missions (tasks) for testers to complete. Once your project is created, it's time to define missions.

A mission requires a title, a description and an expected path:

The title should summarize the purpose of the mission in a few words.
The description is a longer explanation of what a tester should do.
The expected path is set by clicking on the prototype on the right. The expected path is the path you want testers to take. It's the benchmark against which success will be measured. Read more about setting the expected path of a mission.

Consult our best practices for writing mission titles and mission descriptions.

Mission descriptions can be formatted using Markdown.

Complete the text fields with the above information and click Create Mission. Go through the same process to create as many missions as required to test your prototype.

The Options section allows you to change the end message that will be displayed when users complete the Maze.

The end message can be formatted using Markdown.

If you're on the Team or Enterprise plan, you're also able to customize the welcome message of your Maze, upload an image, and protect your Maze with a password.

When you're done click on Start Testing. This will send your Maze live and create a link that you can share with your testers.

Make sure you're completely happy with your Maze, as you won't be able to edit missions anymore. We don't allow editing a live Maze to avoid skewed results. If your Maze is live but you want to edit it, you can duplicate it, make the desired changes, and send it live again.
