Release. Custom Charts Update, Sticky Filters, Test Priority Analytics, and More

Custom Charts UI Improvements

This time we enhanced the user interface for custom charts, which are based on search queries, to provide a better user experience.

Title for Queries: You can now add a title to the query within the chart, making it easier to understand and manage your data visualizations.
Enhanced Label Options: We've introduced different labels for queries, including alias, query, short query, titles, and numbers. This allows for more detailed and organized chart displays.
User-Friendly Design: These UI improvements make it easier to create, understand, and manage custom charts, providing a clearer visualization of your test data.


Sticky Filters for Enhanced Accessibility

We’ve addressed a common usability issue with long lists of test cases by making the filter panel sticky.

Persistent Filter Panel: The filter panel is now always accessible, even when you scroll to the bottom of a long list of test cases.

Improved Usability: Quickly access filters and the checkbox to manage the test list view without needing to scroll back to the top.

This improvement ensures a smoother and more efficient experience when managing extensive test case lists, enhancing your workflow and productivity.


Test Priority Filter in Project Analytics

We’ve added a new filter to our project analytics to help you focus on the most critical aspects of your testing efforts.

Test Priority Filter: Now you can filter project analytics by test priority, allowing you to focus on high, medium, or low priority tests.
Enhanced Insights: Gain better insights into the performance and status of tests based on their priority levels.
This new filter provides a more granular view of your project analytics, enabling you to prioritize your testing efforts effectively and make data-driven decisions.


Automatic Prepend of Test IDs in Feature Files (BDD Tests)

When writing scenarios in your Feature files, test IDs can be automatically added to each scenario. This feature significantly reduces the manual effort required to manage test IDs, allowing you to focus more on writing comprehensive and effective test scenarios. By automatically adding test IDs, we ensure a consistent structure across all your BDD tests. This consistency simplifies the process of matching scenarios with their corresponding automated tests, making it easier to maintain and update your test suite. This enhancement makes it simpler to automate your Feature files, facilitating a smoother transition from manual to automated testing.

You can enable it in Project settings: Open BDD project > Settings > Project > enable Automatically prepend test IDs to scenarios


Also. it can be applied in Suite view: Open BDD project > open suite > Extra menu button > Prepend Test IDs


Hide Automation Type in Project Settings

Based on user feedback, we’ve added a new feature that gives you greater control over test categorization by allowing you to enable or disable automatic 'manual/automated' labels. You can now enable or disable the automatic 'Manual' or 'Automated' labels that are added when creating a test. Define and apply your own tags to categorize tests, ensuring that your labeling system aligns with your specific needs and workflows.
This feature provides more control over how tests are categorized, allowing you to maintain a labeling system that best suits your project's requirements.

This option is available at the project level: open the project > go to Settings > Project > use Show automation type badges (manual, automated) toggle


Filters and Search for Run Group Archive

We’ve enhanced the Run Group Archive with new filters and search capabilities to help you manage and locate Run Groups more efficiently.

Search by Group Title: Quickly find specific Run Groups by searching for their titles.
Filter by Type and Date: Narrow down your search results by filtering Run Groups based on type and date.
Sort by Date and Name: Easily organize your Run Groups by sorting them by date or name.
Comprehensive Archive: The Run Group Archive contains all Run Groups from the project, providing a centralized location for all related data.

These improvements make it easier to navigate and manage your Run Group Archive, ensuring that you can find and access all relevant data efficiently.


Set Default Format for Copying IDs

As part of our commitment to enhancing test automation, we understand the importance of test and suite IDs used for matching tests. We are excited to introduce a new feature that allows you to set the default format for copying these IDs.

  • Default ID Format: You can now define and set the default format for copying test and suite IDs according to your requirements.
  • User-Friendly Toggle: Use the toggle to easily switch between different ID formats, ensuring consistency and precision in your test management workflow.

This feature helps copy IDs, saving time and reducing errors by maintaining a consistent format throughout your test automation tasks.


Suite and Test Title in URL for Copy Option

When using the copy option, the URL now includes the suite and test title. This feature provides immediate context, making it easier for your teammates to understand the shared content.


Streamlined Test Creation with Hotkeys

We’ve improved the test creation process by introducing hotkeys for quick and efficient test creation. Easily create tests one by one using the following steps:

  1. Open suite.
  2. Click "New test."
  3. Enter test title.
  4. Press Tab to navigate to the test description area.
  5. Enter test description.
  6. Press Shift+Cmd+S to save the test and create a new one.

This feature streamlines the test creation process, saving you time and effort. Quickly create and document multiple tests with minimal clicks, enhancing your workflow efficiency.


Delete Test Attachments In Editor View

Easily remove attachments directly during test design without any hassle. Save time by quickly deleting unnecessary attachments, ensuring your test cases remain relevant and clutter-free.


Anchors to Markdown Headlines in Test Description

You can copy the URL by clicking on the anchor at the test header, allowing you to share direct links to specific sections. This feature enhances navigation within test descriptions, making it simpler to reference and share detailed information.


Search for Move and Copy Pop-Up

We’ve introduced a search feature to enhance the efficiency of moving and copying tests or runs. Easily locate the correct destination for your tests or runs, ensuring a smoother workflow. This feature streamlines the process of organizing your tests or runs, saving you time and effort.
