What is a persona?

Persona is a fictional character, represents users who use our product in a similar way. Visualizing them on story map helps to

  • build more empathy
  • understand users’ goals
  • keep focused on target audience’s needs

You can create your first persona by opening a “personas panel”.

Name: give a name to your persona to build more empathy. Names appear on personas short list and on the story map (optional). You can assign personas to activities on the card’s view by entering personas’ names.

Persona group: contains one of the most important information about your user, that’s why we handle separated from other details. Groups are segments of the product audience. This information highlighted also in the persona short list, so it helps to recognize your audience.

You can group your audience by:

  • job role (eg: product owner, developer)
  • behavior (eg: regular buyer, impulse buyer)
  • by seniority (eg: junior, senior)

Made up your own persona group based on the most important segmenting method.
