Introducing your maze and product to testers is important for creating a good testing experience and getting valuable results.
The concept of prototyping and user testing may be unfamiliar to some people, and occasionally they may find themselves confused by the testing process.
Customizing the Welcome Screen and using a Context Screen where necessary will help your testers understand what's required of them and what's about to happen. We've found this to be useful for remote testing, giving your testers an onboarding experience without the need to call or email them all the instructions.

Customize the Welcome Screen
The Welcome Screen is the first screen testers will see — a nice opportunity to engage testers right away.
If you're on a paid plan, you can edit the Welcome Screen with your own message and image. Here, you can brief testers about your company, product, and the goal of the test.
A few ideas on what you can include:
- Company name
- The feature you're testing
- The goal of the test
- Type of testing (e.g. early testing, usability testing, user testing session, remote testing)
- Other relevant details

Add a context screen to your maze
If you want to offer more information to testers before the missions and questions begin, you can add a Context Screen to the beginning of your maze. Use this screen to share the information you think your testers will find useful or need to know before they start.
