Fixed

Test case sorting and required paramater values

Fixed a pairwise defect where test cases sorting by a parameter where some of the test cases had a value forced by a requirement was impacted by the UI styling that was done on the forced parameter value effecting the sort order.

 

Fixed

Duplicate value pair can be created in some scenarios

 
 

March 1, 2018

New

Override browser’s language with a user profile setting

 
 

Fixed

Incorrect share info after initial project creation

Immediately after creating a new project, the UI would report the project was shared with 1 person, even if it wasn’t.

Fixed

Numerous requirements ordering issues

New

All new requirements UI

The UI for forcing specific interactions to appear in test plans has been completely revamped to be easier to use. The main goal of this rework was to eliminate all of the horizontal scrolling that had to happen on larger plans with more parameters. The new UI is a single page wide, no matter how many parameters you have. While working on this main goal, we made numerous other improvements:

  • drag and drop re-ordering of parameters
  • Google sheets / Excel-like data grid for ease of editing, full keyboard only support
  • refined terminology that is more clear, “forced interactions” and “expected outcome”
  • auto-saving (type ESC to cancel your changes)
 

Fixed

Some UI glitch regressions in the test case count and pairwise explanation tooltips and dialog

 
 

February 20, 2018

Improved

Achievement counts are now displayed for 4th and 8th plan achievements

 
 

Improved

Export file naming

Now uses underscores for special characters that are dropped from the filename rather than simply removing them.

 

February 19, 2018

Improved

Auto-scripts test preview selection

You can now sort the parameters in the test case preview selection table for auto-scripts. The header is fixed as well as you scroll the test rows.

Improved

Performance

We made some very significant performance improvements across the entire application. You’ll mainly notice these improvements when opening various dialogs, especially in user accounts that have a significant amount of test plans and projects.

 

Improved

Auto-scripts screen is more accessible for color blind users

As part of our efforts to address user accessibility issues, we are targeting areas of the UI that rely on color exclusively to convey information and adding non-color redundancies.

 

February 14, 2018

Improved

Use ESC key to cancel value pair selection after making the initial selection in the pair

 
 

February 12, 2018

Improved

Long plan names in panel headers and dialogs

They are now consistently truncated.

 

Improved

Achievement counts are now displayed

The achievements needed to level up that are based on the number of activities performed (e.g. “Create your 10th value pair”) now indicate your current count.

 

Improved

Consistency of behavior when closing confirmation dialog with different methods

There was different behavior when the value pair conflict confirmation dialog was closed with the “cancel” link vs. the X. These are meant to be the same.

 

Improved

Added parameter name tooltip to constraints interface

 
 

February 8, 2018

Improved

Clarity of project link in plan dialog

In the plan dialog a click directly on the project acts to select the project, not the entire plan row. This is now made more clear with link underlining on hover over the project name that’s distinct from the entire row hover highlighting.

 

February 6, 2018

Fixed

Parameter names in constraints were styled as links

These are not links in this part of the UI.

 

February 2, 2018

Fixed

Expected results dropdown logic in auto-scripts when exhausting possibilities with “is-not”

The parameter should be removed from the list of possible options when its possibilities are exhausted, but it wasn’t in the case of “is not”. A classic pairwise defect.

 

Fixed

Cancel in the blank parameters and values warning dialog

Now cancel and the close X both work the same.

 

February 1, 2018

Fixed

Share dialog when users have one or more projects with a very long name

Very long data is often an important testing consideration when dealing with user provided content.

 

January 22, 2018

Improved

Information panels

The formatting and styling of the dismissable help panels throughout the application have been improved and normalized across the app.

Fixed

Issues editing plans from the mind map

Most users use the mind map to visualize their test plan inputs. It’s also fully editable however, and there were a few regressions that had been introduced that effected editing your test plan from the mind map view in some cases.

 

January 15, 2018

Fixed

Changes in an open plan from the plan dialog ripple through the app without a reload

If you used the test plan dialog to change certain aspects of a test plan, such as its name or project, and that plan also happens to be the plan that you are currently editing (2-way defects), then those aspects would be stale and would continue showing the old data until you refreshed or changed plans.
