Lane types: text lane


A simple text lane allows you to describe each step in more detail than a title lane. Like a title lane, you can also highlight specific steps with background colors.



What to use text lanes for


Text lanes can be used to further describe a persona's experience, e.g. through

  • "Description"
    What exactly is happening?
  • "KPIs"
    Data you already have to back up this step, sho the journey map becomes more and more research-based
  • "Problems"
    What's a current issue at this step? What's going wrong, what's breaking the experience?
  • "Ideas"
    How could you improve this step?
  • "Questions"
    What are the insecurities of this step? E.g., is the step assumption-based because there is not enough data?
  • "Jobs to be done"
    A job to be done helps you empathize with the persona. It's phrased as the following: When ... I want to ... so I can ...
  • "Time period"
    How much time does this step take? Is it repeating several times?
  • "Needs"
    What does the user really need in this moment?
  • "Wishes"
    What does the user wish to have in this moment?
  • "Risks and opportunities"
    What could make or break the experience if you make changes?
  • "Research insights"
    What can you learn from your own or third party research (e.g., psychology, UI design, ...) about this experience? 
  • "Links to other documents"
    Besides the file lane you can also use the text lane to add files and descriptions of the files
