Testing your design is no less important when remote, but can present some unique challenges.
Where normally you might have several teammates watching a user test onsite, that can be challenging or intimidating to do with multiple people in a virtual environment.
- Using the ‘User Testing’ share link is great in this situation as it hides the clickable hotspots and opens the design as full size in your browser window, making it as realistic as possible.
- Making use of component states to add hover interactions to your design can improve the fidelity of your test and can provide valuable user-feedback as the tester navigates through the design.
- Record your user test using built-in recording options in tools like Zoom or using Quicktime or other tools, so that you can share the results with your team. Make sure that you share your ‘User Testing’ links with the team so they can click along too.
If you’re looking to test with a large audience, Adobe XD connects to user testing plugins like usertesting.com and userlytics, so you can package up your prototype and build a test quickly and easily.
