Centralize your testing assets
Store your quality related assets in a single centralized repository to enable your testers, managers and other staff to easily access the needed information. Never again lose your defect discussion to e-mail thread. Always see the linked requirements and user stories while testing. Make sharing data easy for your project.
Design and specification
All IT projects where something is being developed, the customer has a need and developing party does it's best to develop the features to match the need. The better the communication, the more effective the development is. When the tool is easy to use and effective, the specifications are more likely maintained. This has huge benefits in the development and quality assurance.
Specification defines the “what” of your application. As a basis of any good test plan is a solid set of user stories, use cases, business requirements or something else fitting your process for specification; Your development process might be based on agile methods or something traditional which just determines when and in what extent your requirements are specified.
Plan, organize and collaborate
Meliora Testlab allows you to design and keep your specification related assets up to date with intuitive requirement management features. With hierarchical tree-like specification structure, in-built review process, requirement traceability tracking, change history, file attachments and many other usability features Meliora Testlab guides your work to achieve a good foundation on your soon to be designed test plan.
A good specification process enhances communication between parties and drives collaboration between the supplier and the customer.
Visualize and share the situation
Testlab provides you with rich reporting features to visualize what is going on in the project. You can create always up-to-date PDF, spreadsheet or document reports and share these with others. You can set the tool to send these reports automatically. You can dig in the data in drillable user interface. You can share the situation with always visible radiator views in your project room.
Use the workflow you want
The so called requirement management in Testlab is process agnostic and allows you to the way of working you want: You can use agile methods or enforce strict process - or anything between. You can write the specifications as user stories, use cases or business requirements as needed. You can define the fields and their values you use. The tool really fits your use.
Remember that efficient testing is always based on application specification. For example, if you are using agile methods and designing the application in sprints producing fully functional features Testlab suits this well: your requirement design, test planning, execution and issue management cycle is just shorter.
Testlab has intuitive interface for all test related tasks. The interface has distinct parts for test case design, execution planning and actual execution. The interface let's user concentrate on task at hand - not forcing users to go through artificial steps to conduct their work.
All reports in Testlab are by default rendered as PDF documents. You have an option to export each report as a Excel spreadsheet file for further analysis and in addition, to OpenOffice Writer as an editable document.
Achieve results quickly and concentrate your efforts where it counts. Testlab’s intuitive testing UI makes sure the tests are tested as planned and results are stored and traceable later on.
There are multitude of different kinds of automated testing, and often the amount of test data automated testing generates is too much to easy to track. Testlab allows you to pick what really matters to you - see the important changes from the mass. Testlab does this with it's unique rule-engine which allows you to determine how you wish to see the automated test results.
Track the progress
As soon as the test case has been tested Testlab has that information. You can track test execution in real time without the need to collect the data from each tester. You always know exactly up to date situation what has been tested and what still needs to be tested.
A test management system would not be complete without issue tracking features. Meliora Testlab makes it possible to manage issues directly in same context with test cases which caused them and assign the issues for other people to work on.
Testlab contains a fully featured issue tracking system with rich-text editing, configurable issue workflows, file attachments, change history, customizable fields and commenting which makes it effortless to make issue management an integral part of your quality process.
Timeliness is a crucial feature in issue management. To help you to keep up with the issues (especially issues assigned for you) Testlab notifies you via e-mail if preferred and offers real time notifications in your user interface about events in your project.
Coverage and reporting
To get good quality software, it is of utmost importance to see the quality situation always as it is, and to be able to communicate it accurately. This is one of the strong points of Testlab - the tool has many methods for showing the situation to user and sharing it to others.
Share the situation with radiators
Often the projects work better when everybody knows what is happening. Testlab has radiator views - automatically updating views that you can set up for example to your project room.
All enterprise software should be easily integrated with your existing systems. We in Meliora regard this highly and we provide many integrations out-of-box and a possibility for custom integrations on-demand.
Webhooks are HTTP-protocol based callbacks which enable you to react on changes in your Testlab project. Webhooks can be used as a one-way API to integrate your own system to Testlab.
Manage your tasks with Pivotal Tracker
Meliora Testlab integrates with Pivotal Tracker making it possible for you to plan and track your project activities in Pivotal Tracker and in the same time, test, verify and report your implementation in Testlab.
Testlab can be integrated to Atlassian Confluence with a plugin providing a set of macros to pull content from Testlab to your Confluence.
