The product? Tasks is a step-by-step research product that improves the unmoderated participant experience, creates more intuitive, seamless transitions between the tasks of the study, which is of great help when there's no moderator around to guide or handhold the participant.

After more than a year of Tasks being available for participants on Desktop, it was time to improve the mobile experience. We needed the participant to focus on the experience they're testing, not the Participate app.
Task-based testing on iOS was painful because of app switching.
Research participants forgot to return to the task window and complete all tasks, to tap start/stop task, messing up the playback timestamps and did not understand how to get back to tasks at all.
Introduce step-by-step tasks into our mobile apps in a way that is easy to use for participants, and makes sure researchers get helpful sessions where testers think out loud and complete all tasks.
