5 game changing features by PractiTest

Last updated: January 05, 2018

Looking at different test management tools and comparing them is boring. Yes. I said it. They all say the same and seem to be doing the same. Well, we in PractiTest are working hard to give our clients far beyond the features and solutions they can get anywhere else. We design our product by looking into our clients job, talking to them and listening to their pain points. We gathered a few of our best features for you. These are features you can’t find all together anywhere else, definitely not on the same quality level as can be found on PractiTest . They will help you organize your process, and will give you back great benefits that translate into time and money saving!

Enjoy!

  • No more data mining! Hierarchical filter trees + Advanced search – PractiTest offers you a whole new way to look at your data. Having hierarchical filters means you can slice and dice your data to your convenience. It’s a simple setting that organizes your data in a dynamic way instead of leaving it static. Its like tags but much smarter. Add our faceted search to that and your you will never look at your data the same way. Check out this video to better understand

  • Fully customizable and adaptive – With PractiTest dynamic structure you can start using the tool “as is” and easily customize it to your (often changing) needs as you go. You can customize your fields (enabling custom views), implement your own user-permission levels, define the workflow of your issues, and reuse your existing data in a smart quick way. Even our pricing is scalable. So no matter if its your team that’s changing, your organization or the whole market – we’ve got you covered.
  • Never work twice. For real. We can do it.
    – Permutations – YES, permutations. No more clone change clone change clone change… tell us the basic variables you want to check and we will do all the mix and match for you.

    – Step parameters + call to test – write a test once, use it multiple times in different ways and customise it easily each time. learn all about it here

    – No more duplicated bugs. A unique solution you can read about here
    Anti bug duplication similar_issues_2
  • Communicate with PractiTest in more than one way
    – bug by mail – external team members are able to report bugs by mail. Amazing.
    – External dashboard sharing and advanced reports – Your boss will see the real deal now. In a way that will blow his mind.

  • Advanced integrations – more than just transferring results. Our system can actually TALK to other systems.

N/A status is going all the way to Runs, Tests, and even Requirements

Last updated: November 01, 2017

For better transparency of your testing efforts

Remember this?

It’s the N/A step status we added last year as we saw the need for Not Applicable status.

We took this further and from now on, in case you mark all the tests in a test set/run as N/A, the Run status will change to N/A accordingly

(the same applies also to the Test Status, or even the requirement status)

This small GUI change gives an even more accurate and clearer view into your testing status, enabling you to communicate “neutral” testing efforts as they are, and not appear as “no run” like previously.

From today (Nov 29, 2017) at 7:00 AM UTC, N/A statuses will be calculated and updated all the way from the steps to the requirements. Previous runs with N/A steps, are not touched (and considered as NO RUN), mainly since we didn’t want to touch the history of your runs.
