About our Research Program

The OutSystems User Research Program was designed to help us shape our products, with the needs and struggles of our users in mind. By taking part in our research activities, you’ll be helping us build a better product and improve the overall experience of OutSystems.

Through online surveys, one-on-one interviews, hands-on sessions, and user testing, you’ll get early access to new products and have a say in the OutSystems roadmap. In return for your valuable input, you’ll receive a small thank-you gift, from OutSystems swag to giftcards or even a charity donation, right after each research activity.

Whether you’re non-technical or a tech expert, a newbie or a master, everyone is welcome! We’re looking for all sorts of profiles that will likely represent different groups of OutSystems users. There is no such thing as a wrong answer, just incredibly valuable feedback.

We run various types of research activities, where we get your feedback about a specific topic or ask you to interact with some parts of our product so that we can follow your behavior. The most important thing to remember is that there are no right or wrong answers or actions. Most initiatives are remote, so we’ll receive your feedback via screen sharing or recording while you use the product.

A research activity usually takes between 15 and 30 minutes to complete. For specific methodologies, it can take up to 1 hour. Since most activities are remote, they can take place at any time, depending on your availability and local time zone. You’ll receive all the details before you agree to take part in any research activity.

We’ll reach out to you once we find the best match for your profile. As our priority is to find the best fit for each research activity, your enrollment in the OutSystems Research Program doesn’t guarantee you’ll be invited to participate in every one. Also, being invited doesn’t mean you’ll be chosen to participate.

Absolutely not. All information will be used exclusively for OutSystems’ internal research purposes. Your responses and personal data are confidential and will be used in accordance with the OutSystems Privacy Statement. We’ll only use your information to select the activities that most suit you, and we’ll only contact you to invite you to participate in specific research activities. And we absolutely won’t try to sell you anything. We just want to learn from you!

Qualtrics is the software we use to manage our sign-up process and other surveys.
