Introducing Maze and your product to testers is highly important for creating a good testing experience and getting valuable results.

The concept of prototyping and user testing may be unfamiliar to some testers and occasionally they may find themselves confused by the testing process.

Creating an introduction screen and message will help your testers understand what's required of them and what's about to happen. We've found this to be useful for remote testing, giving your testers an onboarding experience without the need to call or email them all the instructions.

We're aware of this limitation and we're currently working on a solution for a better testing experience, but in the meantime here are a few workarounds that some of our customers have used and found useful.

Add an introduction screen to your prototype

If you want to add more information to the testing session, you can add an introduction screen to your prototype in InVision/Marvel/Sketch. Use this screen as the first mission, giving the context and the information you think your testers will find useful.

Example of an introduction screen

Change the introduction title of your Maze

At the moment, you can change the intro title of a Maze if you're on a paid plan. That will replace the default A-mazed to meet you! message with a title of your choice (up to 60 characters).

Default intro message of a Maze

This is a good opportunity for you to give your testers a general idea of the testing session about to happen.

A few ideas on what you can include:

Company name
Feature you're testing
Type of testing: early testing, usability testing, user testing session, remote testing and so on.
Greeting: Hello, Welcome etc.
Other general details

E.g of an intro title: Welcome to a user testing session for the new Maze homepage!

Example of an intro title

Here's how to proceed:

Go to Maze
Open your project
Click on the Maze you want to edit
Click on Options in the upper right corner
Change the intro title
Click on Update The Title
