You will be able to set the status of the run, add actual results, report or link a bug, and more. If you are running automated tests through xBot you can run them the same way or schedule them to run later. If your automated tests are running separately and reporting back to PractiTest using the REST API or the FireCracker - the results of the automation scripts will be automatically populated into PractiTest with every run or build.
