I think that it can be a bit stressful for some participants. Maybe we can add the information that is not necessary to complete the task. Or we can just mention that they need not worry about time (we can terminate the test after our reserved time, of course).

By giving them an idea of how long it will take helps them understand a little bit more of what to expect. I can change the wording a bit or add a statement after along the lines of: "Don't feel rushed or worry about the time." maybe to relieve any stress they may have.

Sounds good! I'll add that at the end.

I think a pilot test is a good idea. I'll add a few tasks for the first use case.
