Recruit participants with 100's of targeting criteria

Find the right audience for your test with our simple targeting tools.

Updated over a week ago

Overview

Our wide array of 100+ targeting criteria help you recruit the right beta testers and user research participants into your test. Below are all of the available criteria for targeting consumers, professionals, and QA testers. Additionally, you can create a custom screening survey for refined custom targeting on any criteria.

Keep in mind that combining criteria has an exponential effect and the smaller your pool of available testers becomes, so we recommend choosing only the most important criteria in most cases.
