Populate prototype with realistic content - part 5, repetitive data
Populating UIs with realistic data is not hard. It's boring. That's why many Designers would copy-paste their way out of it. Unfortunately, this is no good for usability testsing.
Common in dashboards, charts, and tables. Examples:
- All charts on the dashboard show the exact same trend, exact same numbers because the Designer copy-pasted them.
- The table shows the same record 20 times, e.g. New Sign-ups table features the same person over and over again.
Participants would take this seriously and begin to wonder "Why are Revenues the same as Refunds? Is every buyer returning their products?"
