How it works

1. Define your cards & categories

Create your cards and discover how people think about grouping them into categories. Each card represents a content item (e.g. a menu label) from your site or app that can be grouped.

2. Recruit your respondents

Share your study link to your audience directly or using our Own Database mailing system. Find testers on your own site with our special Onsite Recruiting Widget. Time-consuming? Order testers from our User Panel.

3. Analyze

Get great insights from exploratory and statistical analysis. Standardize your categories and analyze data through Similarity matrix, Dendrogram and other visualisation tools. Learn how users perceive your content and create intuitive content grouping.
