In our final instalment of The Nest Landing Page Tests series we come full circle and look at the changes the Testbirds Development team implemented using the insights our testers shared.
Software testingClients want their app, website or product tested for a multitude of reasons, from gaining an outside perspective of their app’s colour scheme to evaluation of their website’s transaction processes. After a redesign of the The old Testbirds landing page
Some of the changes from the old landing page that were made were:• The existing information was restructured, • More content was added to the client section• Both views, client and tester, can get the information they are looking for• Removed the fields to confirm both the email and password• The email confirmation stage was moved to another page to ensure that testers could double check their email address right after registering and to make sure they receive the email to activate their account.The new Testbirds landing page
Functionality testTesters, in total, identified 100 bugs and prior to launch all the critical bugs were resolved. However, as the test was conducted in our staging environment (a testable pre-version of our actual platform page that isn’t live) certain bugs were a result of problems of the staging environment rather than our actual platform page. So, we crossed a few off the list. Also, as hard as the Dev team tried, some of the bugs couldn’t be reproduced.
UX feedbackDespite the bugs, testers found the landing page informative and professional and mostly importantly, safe. It’s paramount that users feel their information is well protected. The landing page was put through its paces, and testers made sure no stone was left unturned, for example, one tester input non-existing dates into the date of birth field, which would have been accepted in the previous versions.
Some of the more detailed changes were• The date of birth selection was made easier to select – testers pointed out that the previous function was not very intuitive.• Social media icons were implemented• The function to select language was made more obvious• Added the marketing dudette next to the client registration form to highlight the difference between the tester and client forms.The Nest landing page is constantly evolving and we are continually looking for new ways to make your time in the Nest smoother and more intuitive, so you’ll have to keep visiting the Nest to see all the exciting developments.That’s it folks!
