For any tester, attention to detail is a must-have trait. At Testlio, we expect all our testers to follow instructions and guidelines about the scope and objective of testing.
To understand what is expected from you, you should make sure you read all the instructions carefully.
1. Project Details
On your project dashboard, go to Project details - there you will find generic information about the project. What does the app do, what are the core functionalities etc? It will give you a grasp of the wider testing objective.
Project Details might also include details about test environment setup and test accounts.
After you read project details, you can also check out Mindmap to understand how features in the app are connected.
2. Test Cycle Details
Test Cycle Details can be opened by clicking on the green "Go testing" button under an active test cycle.
After you have clicked on "Go testing" you will see a screen with Test Cycle details (information about the testable build, cycle focus, etc.) and Project details (testing specifics, test accounts, etc.).
Please look for the scope and updates from recent builds. It is a more specific overview of what is expected from that particular test cycle. You will find relevant information like Scope, New features, Focus points, What not to test.
Specific instructions on what functions to test will be given in your assigned task list but you will also need to keep in mind the overall information provided in the cycle details.
3. Task List Description
This is the most specific part of your testing guidelines. Below is an example of it. When you have reviewed which device you have been assigned to test with and are familiar with the cycle and task description, you can start testing by clicking on the green "Start" button.
