What is a Customer Journey Map?

A Customer Journey Map is a way of mapping out your customers' journey/experiences, trying to achieve their goals using your product.

In this platform you would use it to define the persona's assumed journey, when they are attempting to perform a task. Also validate the Customer Journey Map in usability tests to see if a feature could be built to enable them to perform the task more efficiently.

Opportunities are structured as follows:

  • Customer Persona
    • Customer Journey
      • Journey Phase (e.g. Onboarding)
        • Phase Action (e.g. Sign Up)
      • Other Phases ...
  • Other Personas ...
