Notable is the Progressive Design engine we built for presenting design work and organizing feedback. It will help teams collaborate and make decisive design decisions at any point in the design process.
Make a big impact with design presentation
Bring mockups to life
When buy-in from stakeholders is at stake, a high fidelity clickable prototype may be what you need.
Sometimes it’s important to do full mock-ups to get a complete sense of how an application will function before you waste time building it. Engineering time can be costly especially if your app isn’t fully utilized.
Capture user stories
Understanding user needs and their workflow through the app guides all decisions downstream.
Identifying user archetypes helps us create an app that will be valued by its customers. After mapping out users motivations and tasks, we can design features and interactions that match user needs.
Size up the competition
Audit what the competition’s doing by review their sites’ strengths and weaknesses. Find opportunities, spark your imagination and learn how your design can stand out.
Show a workflow
Presenting static screens without the interactions limits your audience from seeing the intent of your product. Use wireframes to assemble a clickable prototype prevents this.
Visualize an early concept
A sketch prototype helps shape the visual flow and identify gaps in early concepts. The clickable prototype will offer valuable input for developing the concept further.
[Influence Pages] has been an extremely effective tool for sharing new presentation concepts with my colleagues. I see it as the “ultimate brown bag lunch tool” — providing remote participants with controls for instant feedback.

Swap feedback with your team and customers
Sometimes websites need a little love and an honest review of design choices and interaction that may not make sense.
Keep your site moving the right direction with a web audit: a review of every unique page on your website. Your notes will help the whole team see opportunities to give a product the love it needs to grow.
Go for volume of ideas
Presenting a ton of new ideas can be overwhelming, if there isn’t an easy way to get reactions from your team.
Organized presentations will help you understand what ideas resonate with your team. Capture your presentation with titles and descriptions, so others can understand your thought process even without you being there.
Finalize a decision
Everyone has an opinion, and it’s important that collaborators feel heard. When a decision is holding up the process, a simple a preference test can get you through the bottleneck.
Capture problems areas
Notice something while surfing your website or app, you can snap a quick screenshot and annotate it. You’ll be able to make contextual notes right on the screen instead of creating a tedious list of things to improve.
Clarify specific interactions
Getting stuck in PRDs can stall a project. You can focus on defining interactions and giving clarity to the development team, instead of getting caught up in pages and pages of requirement docs.
We posted the link to the test and within 48 hours had more than 140 completed tests. It took at most an hour to process the results and we had answers for the team within two days!

Verify design decisions every step of the way
See if users can complete a task
Occasionally, you want to be very specific with what you want to know about your prototype. With Notable prototypes, you can put together a series of directives to run a user through, then review the data to see how successful people were at completing the task.
See what users find most relevant
The annotate test is one of the more powerful and versatile tests in Notable's toolkit. It lets users respond to a question or directive using visual annotations and short explanations. For instance, users can easily identify and critique visual elements or blocks of text on a website.
Get users’ visceral reactions
Despite its appeal, the trending image-based design risks overwhelming the user with too much visual stimuli. The mood test addresses this concern by ascertaining how users instinctively react to your website and why.
Test for the most intuitive interface
Prototyping is an essential component of the design process, and getting user feedback on different front ends is often a time-consuming process. The multipage click test simplifies this process by linking together different interfaces with a common directive.
Gain insight into user preferences
Websites frequently have multiple means to execute the same task. The yes/no test identifies specific regions and generates data on what percentage of users preferred to sign up using Facebook and what percentage created new accounts, as demonstrated in this example using Myspace.
Evaluating and finalizing the front end
Redesigning your entire front end? After users have had the opportunity to acclimate, a preference test can show how the new design stacks up against previous one. This after-the-fact analysis removes the initial bias and apprehension that users might feel about adapting to a new interface.
Utilize user trends to simplify pathways
If your website has multiple channels that do the same thing, it’s useful to track user trends and patterns in order to streamline traffic. The click test is a helpful tool that measures how people use your interface.
Analyze user intent and site accessibility
Striving for brevity often leads to condensed content and can result in ambiguous elements. The label test asks users what specific elements mean to them, letting you compare the generated data with your intent.
Draws attention to specific elements
The memory question test quantifies how much of a call to action your site actually is. The memory question asks users questions about specific elements on the website to see how much information users actually retain.
