Handy Google Sheets Templates for UX Designers

One tool set we use at the company I work for is Google Sheets. Sometimes I find myself doing similar tasks repeatedly. Just like anything, when you have to do something repeatedly, you find yourself creating "molds" or "templates" to hopefully speed up the process. This is especially true when it's stuff that is in-and-of-itself monotonous. The purpose of this blog entry is to have a place where I can share out my Google Sheets templates to other UXers. Open the sheet and follow the simple instructions on the first tab of the sheet. Let's work together to make this world a better place! Happy Holidays!!!



 
 

Experience Blueprint Sheet



Open the Experience Blueprint Sheet Template
The purpose for this template is to help map out all the various touch-points in a service offering that a team or a company has.  It's an adaptation of the Service Blueprint described in the book "Service Design - From Insight to Implementation by Andy Polaine, Lavrans Lovlie, and Ben Reason forward by John Thackara. A Rosenfeld Media production.

 
 

Reference Sheet



Open the Reference Sheet Template
The purpose for this template is to help map out all the various touch-points in a service offering that a team or a company has.  This template is intended to provide you with place to track reference material for your research efforts. It's been robust enough for my needs. You may want to adapt it to your projects needs though. Enjoy!

 
 

Search Terms Sheet



Open the Search Terms Sheet Template
The purpose for this template is to help map out all the various touch-points in a service offering that a team or a company has.  Sometimes conducting 'online search research' can become tedious, or at the very least confusing. It may be helpful for you to track those terms that you've already used to search on. See the templates example for usage. Hope this one is just what you were looking for.

 
 

UX Assessment Planning Sheet



Open the UX Assessment Planning Sheet Template
The purpose for this template is to help map out all the various touch-points in a service offering that a team or a company has. 

If you are like me, you do a lot of UX Assessments for various teams. I also tend to find myself working collaboratively with members of my team.

If you have a Heuristic Evaluation you need to conduct, consider using this sheet to stay organized and to help identify all the screens that you need to remember to keep in scope. You may also consider looking into the article titled Creating a UX Assessment. When you are all done with your work and you need to present, well consider also reading Presenting a UX Assessment.

 
 

Questions-Answers Tracking Sheet



Open the Questions-Answers Tracking Sheet Template
The purpose of this sheet template is to track questions, answers, dates and sources for the project you are working on. Modify to your liking! :)

 
 

User Info Tracking Sheet



Open the User Info Tracking Sheet Template
Use this template to track User Types and User Type Attributes such as user goals, frustrations, job activities, competency levels and the like.
