All you’ll need to do is speak your thoughts out loud as you navigate through the application, and record yourself and your screen whilst doing so. The actual recording should take around 15 - 30 minutes.
Your feedback will help us figure out how to improve the Sprints user experience. If possible, we’d like recordings to be done anytime during Sprint 254 (starting 24 Aug).
Yay, thanks @giovannicimolin! There’s no need to have done a usability test before. It’s just a matter of following some simple instructions and providing feedback on the user experience. No prior experience needed
So far we have 3 volunteers. Generally, the rule of thumb is that we need at least 5 test users to get meaningful feedback.
What if you were one of the test users? I know you probably know Sprints inside-out, and are unlikely to find anything confusing, but you’d also be able to give feedback on some of the UX issues you’ve noticed, or concerns others may have mentioned.
What do you think? Since the tests are supposed to be completed next sprint (254), I’m hoping to create tickets for each of the test users tomorrow. If you agree to be a test user, we’d still need 1 more volunteer.
Edit: Since posting the above message, I’ve been thinking about the option of using @cassie as the 5th test user . It would be good to get feedback from a non-developer, non-core-team-member considering that Sprints will be used as a SaaS product. What do you think?
I’d like to say a final, BIG thank you to @nizar, @giovannicimolin, @paulo, @Agrendalath, and @cassie for participating in the Sprints usability tests! I know they can take quite a chunk out of your day, so I really appreciate you taking the time to help with this.
I have just finished organising all of your feedback, and have so much valuable feedback to work with. I’m really looking forward to getting started on the UX and UI improvements!
