Crowdtesting Tip: Be Specific

One awesome part of crowdtesting and working with a crowd of professional human testers: you can turn them loose on your app or website, and they’ll kick the tires and take your product for a spin, to make sure it does what they think it should, and doesn’t do anything it shouldn’t. This is a great way to see what they find and how what you’ve been working on holds up when a normal human uses it.

However, if there are certain types of bugs you’re worried about, new features or functionalities you want checked over, or parts of the site you know you need to refine, take the time to be specific with your testers. Pinpoint the areas you want testers to focus on, so you’ll get the information you need.

The point of testing your product is to help you make it better, so take advantage of being able to specify where you know you need work. Don’t be afraid to be direct about what those are. You can run other test cycles where you leave the test brief open.
