Those of you who have signed up for Verify private release probably have noticed the new "Verify It" button in Notable. Have you tried it out yet? This new magic button lets you test the feedback you get in Notable before you start implementing it. Here is how we recently used the Verify button here at ZURB:
We were working on a visual design for a client. Our designer created a mockup and solicited feedback from the team. The designer got some conflicting feedback. One team member said we need to display the full date and time in a time stamp while another said we just need to display "3 days ago" instead. Here's how we made our decision:
- We clicked the Verify button in Notable to ask other people which timestamp they'd prefer.
- We were directed to Verify. We selected "Preference Test" to ask people which one of our two mockups they prefer and why.
- We generated a URL for our interactive test and gave it to our Twitter followers. Go ahead and click on the button below to preview the test.
- We got data back that helped us decide which timestamp to choose. Click below to view our results.
The data told us that 79% of people prefer "3 days ago" version. We went ahead with implementation of the idea which was validated by data. That's how we use that handy Verify button. The whole idea is that we get data to back up our decisions before we implement them. Curious — how do you verify your ideas before you implement them?
