You responded in droves when we last asked for usability test participants!  We have another usability study that Bay Area Mac users will be interested in. We’re doing another usability test of new features in both Entourage and PowerPoint. We need users who use Entourage at least once per week and PowerPoint once per month. The study will be conducted at our lab in Mountain View, California.  

If this describes you and if you’re in the Bay Area, please sign up to participate in our study!  You can do so in one of two ways:
  • Sign up on our usability participant webpage, and make sure that you indicate that you use both Entourage and PowerPoint.  Don’t forget to fill out your contact details, otherwise we won’t know that you’re in the Bay Area!  http://www.microsoft.com/mac/go/mactest/
  • Call our usability test recruiters at (888) 261 8488.  They’ll take you through a questionnaire and get you into our database of potential participants.  If you leave a message, don’t forget to specify your name, phone number, and that you are a Mac user.


If you’re in the database and are selected as a potential participant, you will get a call or an email from someone at Microsoft.  They’ll ask you some additional questions to make sure that you qualify for this particular study.  If you don’t qualify, or you’re not available this time around, don’t worry!  We’re doing lots of usability studies in the next few months, so you might hear from us later.

We’re doing lots of other work as well, so if you’re interested in participating in our other usability studies in the Bay Area, Redmond, and around the world, sign up on our webpage.  And don’t forget to tell your other Mac-loving friends and family!
