The “Starting Point URL” is the website, app or prototype your participant will immediately be pointed to when they begin a user experience study. The decision to include a Starting Point URL depends on whether you are conducting an unmoderated test or a moderated test, and what your test goals are.
If you are conducting an unmoderated study and would like to immediately point your participant to a URL at the beginning of the test, you will need to fill the starting point URL. When you place your URL in this field, the user will be sent to that location at the beginning of the test. However, if you would prefer to ask a few questions before directing the user to a site or app, toggle “Define Destination URL(s) inside the TestScript.” This will allow you to place your URL at a later task.
If you are conducting a moderated study, you do not need Starting Point URL. By default,“Define Destination URL(s) inside the TestScript” option will be toggled if you select “Live Conversation” as your test type. This is because our updated Live Conversations recorder allows you to direct your participant to your website, app, or prototype at any point during the session by clicking the “Share URL With Participant” button.
If you have a DIY account, then you would pay for the credits when you go to launch the test, after you have fully setup the test.
If you have a Custom Project or Enterprise Plan, then you would purchase the credits upfront and they would be available in your account for when you are ready to run your upcoming test(s).
You can write your test instructions and questions in any language or alphabet. In addition, for formative studies, you can set the language of the recorder UI and participant landing pages into any of the following languages:
We can add additional languages upon request with a minimum 2 week lead time.
In addition, our AI based automatic transcription of video sessions, provided by Amazon Alexa, is available in the following languages:

If you are using your own usability test participants, it depends on how quickly they respond to your invitation. Our platform processing time takes between 1 to 5 minutes, so you can receive results extremely quickly.
When using the Userlytics Panel, with broad based demographics, after a thorough QA review of every user test video, results are available in as little as 24 hours, sometimes within hours.
For narrowly based demographic targets, it depends on the filters and behavioural screener used to set up the project, and thus how narrowly defined the target Persona is.
This unique feature enables the blocking of screen recording during sensitive moments in the test journey, to protect personal identifiable information, while continuing to record the webcam view of the participant and their “think aloud” commentary.

Very easy and very similar to an unmoderated user experience test, the main difference is you have a scheduling tool where you define the availability of your moderator (unless you wish to have Userlytics moderate). Invited participants then confirm the specific date/time they will do the test and both the moderator and the participant receive reminders prior to the selected date/time.
One very cool and unique aspect of the Userlytics moderated testing platform (“Live Conversations”) is that participants do NOT need to download ANY application, extension or plug-in; the system is completely “in-browser” and 100% HTML based, so participant onboarding is extremely seamless and can take place within corporate firewalls!
