Persona Feature

I’ve had this itch to create the persona feature for the last few months and even though initially I wanted to push this off to phase 2, I just couldn’t resist. This is the second last feature I want to implement before going on road shows. The last being the team functionalities. I have one common goal while implementing all of these features - I keep asking myself throught - How can I make this simple for the UX designers? Can I make it any easier than this? If the answer is yes, I need to implement it that way regardless of how much extra work it is on my end.

There are many pain points in creating a persona that frankly shouldn’t be. With UserBit I’m trying to address this

  • Generate names automatically - getting hung up on what name to give our persona is something I’ve seen way to often. UserBit offers a way to generate names automatically

  • Generate pictures - UserBit also allows to automatically fetch a picture for the persona based on gender specified.

  • Many other usability delights

It was a late night and I suspect it is going to be long hours this weekend but I aim to have this ready on the other side of the weekend.
