qTest has robust features that helps you
organize and manage your test activities
qTest offers a simple and flexible interface for managing a project’s requirements, allowing users to automatically sync the project requirements structure with the test case structure.
With qTest, you can link requirements to test cases and associated defects, so you can get a complete view for traceability in the project.
Change History and Baselines
qTest enables users with proper permissions to create, baseline and modify requirements while keeping track of all changes made to requirements for proper versioning.
qTest import wizard allows you to map fields and quickly and effectively import test cases from your existing Excel spreadsheets or test management solution to qTest.
In addition,qTest also allows exporting of your test case to Excel, if desired.
Test Case Management
qTest provides a simple, intuitive way to organize test cases and to have them automatically synchronized with your project’s requirement structure. The qTest interface features a context-sensitive menu that makes it fast and convenient to create and manage test cases.
Creating Test Cases
Creating efficient design and hot keys makes creating test steps and defining expected results simpler and faster than any other test management alternative.
qTest enables you to link test cases to any number of requirements, and also to link requirements to any number of test cases, so you can efficiently make updates to requirements and test cases, and ensure associated workflows are revised accordingly.
Test Case Versions and Approvals
qTest enables you to create multiple versions of a test case, so they can be executed for different releases, customer environments, or testing configurations. Each time test cases are changed, qTest tracks the full details of those modifications and ensures proper approvals are required.
qTest automatically synchronizes a project’s schedule in the test cycle management module, which helps improve test planning accuracy and convenience. The test cycle, and its associated sub-structures, such as test suite and test run, can be configured to have common properties, such as environments, testers, releases, and testing type. Further, simply by copying and pasting, you can reuse these structures in multiple releases.
Creating Test Runs
The qTest allows you to simply select the requirements of the build’s scope or fixed defects, and qTest will automatically add the associated test cases into your test suite execution interface.
In addition, test cases can be added to a specific test suite based on its type, status, version or properties. You can also assign testers and environments for each individual test run or for an entire test suite.
Executing Test Runs
qTest features TestPad, a miniature version of the text execution module that can display next to the target application and provide a compact view of the steps that need to be executed where you can also mark results, update test cases, and create defects.
As your testing progresses, qTest will automatically track execution results, update test cases, and load subsequent test cases in your suite into the TestPad interface. In addition, you can create test case baselines, without having to go back to the main interface.
Filtering and Tracking Test Results
qTest retains a history of all test runs, execution sessions, and associated defects. You can filter, track and review execution sessions and filter by test result status, test type or defects.
The test execution dashboard lets you view the real-time status of the test cycle, statistical data on test results, and associated trends.
Given the product’s seamless integration with defect creation and test execution, submitting a defect into qTest is simply a matter of assigning it a title-saving staff time and boosting productivity.
In addition, qTest enables you to export your test cases into Excel, so you can efficiently use these files for other purposes.
Managing the Defect Tracking Lifecycle
qTest provides powerful yet convenient capabilities for tracking team workflows and for managing defects across their lifecycles.
Optimal metrics tracking and measurement.
Advanced Query and Search
qTest comes pre-configured with the most common queries. In addition, it offers an advanced query system that ensures you and your team members can quickly customize your queries and locate the defects desired. All query results can be exported to Excel
Real-time Interactive Reports
qTest reports and dashboards are flexible and interactive, enabling users to drill down to get more details and to specify various criteria in order to locate the most important details. By changing parameters, you can get different views of project status.
Pre-packaged and Customizable Reports
qTest comes with several pre-built reports that offer useful insight on projects, covering such areas as quality, progress, and productivity.
In addition, qTest offers custom report capabilities that enable you to effectively build your own reports to track and assess team activities. All reports can be exported to Excel
With qTest’s intuitive interface, you can quickly set up project resources and milestones. Defining releases and the scope of builds is simple, and fully integrated with the requirements module.
With qTest, project managers can assign tasks when creating test cases, composing requirements, or executing test runs. For each task, users can specify due dates and define outputs.
qTest comes equipped with the properties and data types that are required for the vast majority of organizations and teams. If needed however, you can use the qTest customization module to easily add new fields.
Integration and APIs
qTest offers native integration with most popular defect tracking tools, which makes it easy to synchronize defects between platforms.
