A click dummy is a partly interactive prototype of a website or an application. As a clickable dummy it represents the future product. It already shows relevant characteristics of the final product. In order to test key utilization sequences and scenarios of a website or a product with users before the final implementation it is possibly necessary to simulate the interactions and processes in the form of a click dummy so that users can make statements to them. Depending on the application’s focus the related areas of the website or app are clickable or functional.
Click dummies can particularly be applied for validation of interactions with users as they enable a good grasp of the reality in this area. This way the future product can be designed after the user‘s needs regarding processes and interactions.
