Steps execution

This page provides information about the Test Case execution.

In the testing process, a tester is assigned to issues having defined sets of steps ready to be executed.

TestFLO Cloud app takes a test execution to the next level. It is possible not only to set the status of the step, but also attach a file, add a comment, or create a defect.

Step statuses

  • Every step has three buttons representing different statuses. Click the one corresponding to the test execution result.

  • If you want to change the steps’ statuses in bulk use the group change icon which can be found next to the each status button. The chosen step and all the steps below will change their statuses to the selected one.

  • Click the selected status button one more time to set the step grey (not tested) again.

  • Test execution progress is shown on the bar above the steps. It presents the percentage of the steps in different statuses and automatically updates after each step status change.
