Ballpark supports the popular design tool Figma, which can turn your designs into interactive prototypes, ready to test with your participants!
As your participants test your prototype, Ballpark tracks clicks, misclicks, goals and much more to give you deep insights into how your designs perform.
Before you get started, check out our handy tips for working with (large) Figma files to avoid any pitfalls!
The different ways to test your prototype
Prototype tasks: If you want to track how many participants complete a goal on your prototype, then pick the Prototype task step.
Prototype free roam: If you are testing a single screen such as a single landing page, style-guide or components which do not have a specific goal, then select the Prototype free roam.
