Test & Feedback – Now everyone on the team can own quality. Capture findings, create issues, and collaborate with the team, directly from the browser.
Everyone in the team, be it product owners, developers, testers, UX designers etc., can now test their web-apps and give feedback, all directly from the browser on any platform: Windows, Mac, or Linux. All kinds of teams will now be able to drive quality in 3 easy steps – capture, create & collaborate.
Capture – Take notes, screenshots with annotations, and screen recordings to capture problems. Automatically include rich data like user actions (as an image action log), page load data, and system information.
Create – Create bugs, tasks, and feedback response work items to send feedback or report problems. Create test cases quickly based on the image action log while you explore your app. Automatically attach all your captured information.
Collaborate – Work offline in standalone mode, then export your session to share findings with your team. For more integrated experiences with end-to-end traceability, connect to Visual Studio Team Services or to Team Foundation Server 2015 or later. For example, you can explore user stories directly from the board, manage all feedback requests received, and easily track bugs, tasks and other work-items. To view completed exploratory sessions and get insights across all completed sessions, for example, details about sessions and work items that are created, explored, and weren’t explored, plus other data, go to your exploratory testing insights page.
You can use the extension for FREE in these modes: Standalone and Connected
Available to everyone. Any team, large or small, can use standalone mode to capture issues using screenshots with inline annotations and notes and then share the results using a session report. No connection to Visual Studio Team Services or Team Foundation Server required.
Connect to Visual Studio Team Services/Team Foundation Server to drive your exploratory testing and feedback flows.
