Early Concept Testing
« on: May 28, 2019, 03:32:24 PM »
Hello! I would like to involve the community in testing some early design concepts. To participate, you would need to do the following:

1. Take a screening survey and qualify.
2. If you qualify, sign an NDA to participate.

Please let me know if you have any questions, though please understand there are certain things I would not be able to answer publicly.

If you're interested in participating, the survey can be found here: https://www.research.net/r/ZPRG5RB

I'm sorry to hear that, alanb.  :-( I'll post more things like this in the future that will require a variety of different sorts of people, so hopefully you'll have better luck then!

Yes Victoria -

I don't qualify either.  Maybe my age had something to do with it.

Hopefully another time.  When I figure out how to get younger!

Yeah, I wondered the same thing. I am 72. It is interesting if that is what disqualifies us, as it is us old f@rts that have time, interest and resources to spend on the toys their company sells. :)

Well, I suppose they may be doing some research on what products might appeal to a younger crowd Ö can't really blame them for that, it's where the future is.

Sorry Bushman - for this particular test, we're narrowing in to a specific subset of customers for research purposes. This is not at all an indication of our greater customer base. Different tests will often have different required groups, while other tests may seek feedback from the customer base as a whole.

When you fill out the form is there a reply e-mail with a yes or no ?  I did it and maybe I missed it but I didn't see anything on the page I filled out say yea or nay nor a e-mail saying anything .

If you qualify, you won't receive an email yet, but should in a few days.

Thanks for all the interest in participating! The nature of this test doesn't have a quota on how many participants there could be, so if you want to share it with friends or other groups like on Facebook or something, please feel free!

I filled it out and it said at the end that I qualify (at least I'm 99% sure it did, definitely didn't say that I don't qualify). For anyone interested I'm in the 30-39 age bracket, so that's at least within the qualifying range.

I've just posted it to the Facebook Acurite use groups.

Thanks again to everyone who took the survey! As an FYI, the survey is now closed. If you qualified, you should receive follow-up soon (if you haven't already). If not, I still very much appreciate your interest in helping, and please stay tuned for future tests, as the requirements will generally be different each time.

I got a response when George posted to Facebook that I was a good match. I've been watching my emails for the signon document and just today I got one that said my signup form expired. I never got the first one so I wonder if there is any way to get it resent so I can sign on. I love testing cool things and helping develop something new, thanks Terry.

Did the email come from Acurite? I've been watching for that. I get a lot of email so if it came from someone I didn't recognize I could have deleted it.

It came from the place they used to send secure documents to be signed. I never got a email from them before now so don't know if it got bounced or never sent but my server sends me the blocked email I get everday so I can clear any that are legitimate.

Mine came from dse_NA3@docusign.net. This is a legit company that does verifiable and legal document signing for other companies.

Thanks lightmaster, my deleted messages go back a week and nothing from them. Guess I didnít make the cut after all. Iíll stop worrying about it.
