Prototyping in Voiceflow
Conversation designer (me)
6 participants (via UserTesting)
2 Voiceflow prototypes: current versus proposed (account balance upfront)
All completed the tasks correctly, however, a few did find the navigation to be challenging.
Account balance is preferable in the navigation menu.
Many preferred combining transactions, so they don’t have to stay in the menu as long.
Participants would transfer out if they couldn’t find answers right away.
Challenges: so many elements in the menu to explore. Difficult to identify one area to improve with so few participants and various feedback.
