On Computers

You need to download and install the Userbrain Extension for the Google Chrome Browser. After installation, the Userbrain Extension is automatically added to the taskbar of Google Chrome. You'll find it on the right side next to the address bar.

Here's a step-by-step instruction on how to start your qualification test: 

  1. Access your qualification test by clicking on the Userbrain icon and log in with the email and password you've used for your Userbrain account
  2. Click on "Start example test now". 

     

  3. Follow the screens that provide you with important tips for your upcoming qualification test.
  4. After that, you'll be sent to a page that asks you for access to your microphone. Click on "Give Access Now". And after that on "Allow". 
  5. After giving Userbrain permission to record your screen and your audio, you can close the window.
  6. Go back to your Chrome Browser and click again on the Userbrain Logo.
  7. Click through those tips again and then check if your microphone is working.
  8. After clicking on "Select your screen" click on the shown image of the screen your browser window is active and then on "Share". 

     

  9. Now start the recording of your test by clicking on "Open site and start recording".

     

  10. Click on the Userbrain Logo to see your task. You can always pause the recording or discard your test. You can always get back to the task and end the recording by clicking the Userbrain Icon again.

     

  11. When viewing the last task, the button "Finish recording and upload" will be visible to end your recording. 
  12. After finishing your test, you'll have to evaluate it before the final upload.
  13. Just have a look at your recording and answer a few questions.
  14. Then you can upload your example test or retake your example test.

Userbrain Chrome Extension will be only active during a user test which you have started and ends recording once your test is completed.

Additionally, there will be a timer running in front of that Userbrain Icon where you can see how long you've been recording.

Download the Userbrain App for iOS devices and log in with the email and password of your Userbrain account. Turn your phone on "Do not disturb" and make sure you find yourself in a quiet place with no distractions. Remember to think out loud and follow all the given tasks. Allow the screen recording by selecting "Record Screen & Microphone". 

By pressing the "Get Started Now" button, your screen and voice will automatically be recorded. If you've followed all the given tasks and answered all the questions, finish your test by clicking on "Finish Test".

You'll then have to answer a few questions about your recording and after positively evaluating your test, it's ready for upload.
