Diary study


Report detailed information about routines and long-term experience.


Ask users to keep a diary over a period of time and report about their personal experience regarding your topic of interest. It’s possible to ask users to report about activities, feelings or frustrations.


In practice

In one diary study users were asked to review some kind of app or device to see how it fitted their habits. Diary studies are also useful for insights in the user experience of services that take multiple days or weeks to complete, like planning and booking a holiday.
