Previous Monthly Releases (Since 2007)
August 4, 2019
Summer (for most of our users at least, sorry all of you in the south hemisphere…) is always a good time for vacations. For our users – we’re here, working for you, so when you’re back Testuff will be ready for you, as it always is, just better. So our main focus this month was on some fixes and background improvements. Nothing fancy in the front, but important enough.
We are working on an industry-unique enhancement to our great bug-trackers integration. Stay tuned – it’s around the corner.
June 30, 2019
- Requirements new report: We’re continuing to make the Requirements module better. And now a new report to show the results of the requirement’s test by their configuration breakdown.
- Test Planning Management: Tests filters include now a new status option for showing all of the unassigned tests. This will result in tests that were never assigned yet (unlike those that were assigned but still not run).
- Tests Structuring: Introducing a better, easier and faster, approach to changing tests position within the suite. Use the Set position option on a test’s menu to re-order your suite.
- Audit trail: Label changes are reflected now in the audit. See who added/removed labels from your tests, defects or tasks.
- Tasks management:
- New status filter on My Tasks screen
- Printing tasks includes attachments and comments list
June 2, 2019
- Test Runner: Web-app Test Runner shows now the list of saved video files, so you can add any video to the test, be it passed or failed status test.
- Reports: New report on Defects – Burn down. This report, together with the defects Progress report, will help you to better manage your defects handling process.
- Requirements: Export and Import of the requirements are included now the field values (type, risk, category and owner for export).
- User Management: When deleting a user from the account, their assigned but not-run-yet tests are saved in the lab (under No tester). Note that completed tests are never deleted.
- Print to browser of assigned test (Labs, My tasks) includes now not only the project and branch names, but the test’s suite location as well. Making it easier for the tester is always our priority.
April 28, 2019
- Test Runner:
- File attachment names can be edited and changed for better description of the file.
- Defects, reported from a test step to the tracker, show the tracker’s ID already in the Test Runner. This improves the follow-up and understanding of the defect management, between Testuff and your tracker.
- Reports: Share and Scheduled Reports include the exact details of each report, its filters and the report’s date.
- Web App Enhancements:
- Time Management: Following up on estimated vs. actual time of test execution got easier with the new Operate on all menu option. This option enables setting up the estimated time of all tests in the list, in one action.
- Tests Management: a new Comments icon was added to the icons of each specific test or task, in tests/tasks lists. Easier and faster access to write or review a test’s comments.
- Desktop Test Editor has now a Preview option. See how your test looks while writing it.
March 31, 2019
- Reports Scheduling: Need to send a weekly report to your manager? A monthly report to your client? No need for reminders any more, no wasting time on creating these reports again and again. You can now simply schedule any report and continue with your testing, untroubled.
- Defects filtering: Additional filtering options for defects. Choose Do Not Include a value to get all other values at once. Better filtering, easier defects management.
- Tests Execution Estimated Time: Managing your testing time with Testuff just got better. Set your own estimated default estimated time for new tests.

- Defects: Editing of the defect’s comments is now available on the desktop client, as is already on the web app.
- Tests: Soft-link tests show now the originating test numbering ID, for easier orientation, and better sorting.
December 2, 2018
Better exploratory testing experience
When it comes to exploratory testing, the quality of a test management tool is measured by two main criteria:
– Speed. The tester’s valuable time must be used and managed as efficiently as possible. You want a tool that allows users to easily and quickly start testing.
– Documentation. The extent, ease, and depth with which tests and results can be documented. The ultimate goal centers around one’s ability to reproduce the defects found, without any additional information requests and communication between testers and developers. This includes the:
- Ability to open a test with no content, just as a general idea or direction.
- Ability to write the test while executing it, based on actual actions taken.
- Test execution recording. A way to show the developers the findings/defects found in a comprehensive and visual way.
Testuff does exactly this, helping you with your exploratory testing. And we’re always making sure to add and enhance it around this important methodology, including in this month’s new version. During the years we’ve implemented many industry-unique features, making your (exploratory) testing better, easier and faster. Our new version includes fine-tuning of some of them, one example is the synchronization of the test in the Test Runner and its latest edited version.
November 4, 2018
Managing your Requirements
- Managing requirements is an important part of your testing project. Testuff enables you to create (or import) your requirements, under a dedicated requirements module, and to follow up on their test coverage.
- Requirements can be created with a hierarchy, to group related requirements, and better follow up on tests covering certain areas of your software. There are specific reports for requirements, which allow additional views of your progress and requirements status, filtered and cross-matched with other parts of the testing elements.
- Assigning tests to the requirements is quite easy. You have your list of available tests, which can be filtered by many fields and criteria, and then it’s a one-click-action to assign them.
- Any reported defect on a test from the suite is registered as related to this requirement. It will show up in the coverage table and the requirement’s statistics data.
New on this version:
We’ve now improved one of the test assigning options: Linking Suites To Requirements. A suite can be linked to a requirement (or many requirements), and its tests will be then automatically assigned to the requirement. This is a dynamic linkage: add a test to the suite and it will be added to the requirement (same goes for removing a test of course). Add a new sub-suite, and you don’t need to worry about assigning its tests to the relevant requirements, as it is done automatically for you.
September 30, 2018
- Testers Teams: Create teams of testers, and assign teams to projects, for better resource management
- Go to the new Manage teams option.
- Create a team and assign testers to it.
- Assign a team, or teams, to a project (or projects).
