A Picture is Worth 1000 Words: Images on Insights and the Analysis Board

A bunch of images in the shape of stars, each star representing a different insight.

We’ve just added a ton of visual impact to your workflow inside of Handrail. With support for images on insights and the analysis board, you can easily reference photos, diagrams, and sketches while analyzing data and reviewing insights.

Cover Images for Insights

Three examples of insights with cover images—a photo of a woman sitting at a cafe, a dashboard with several charts, and a wireframe sketch of a user interface.

Cover images give you the ability to provide an impactful visual representation for each insight. This can help your team more deeply engage with the research and develop a better understanding of its implications.

Images on the Analysis Board

Handrail's Analysis Board containing several research cards with various images on them.

User researchers and designers reference all kinds of visual artifacts when analyzing data and crafting insights:  

  • Photos taken during interviews
  • Screenshots of a prototype
  • Whiteboard sketches
  • Data visualizations

That’s why we’re also excited to bring support for images to the Analysis Board.

Each card can have its own image. Simply click any image to see it close up.
