This year, we introduced Record & Replay for teams that want to automate tests without scripting. This method of codeless automation has allowed teams to maximize the value of every manual test by reducing execution time while increasing speed and coverage. And just like with Selenium testing, once your tests are recorded in Record and Replay, you can run them in parallel to get even more out of each suite.
Additionally, when paired with automated screenshots, teams of any skill level have the ability to visually and functionally verify their web application on thousands of browsers at once. By leveraging our Comparison Engine, you can take visual testing to the next level by evaluating differences that are highlighted at the pixel level.
Now with Scheduling for Record & Replay and automated screenshots, you can set tests to run on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis and have the results sent to you via email or Slack. Scheduling is the next step in helping our customers achieve continuous testing without needing to learn highly technical CI tools like Jenkins, TeamCity, and VS Team Services.
If you’re thinking this sounds too good to be true, find out how easy it is to get started with Scheduling in CrossBrowserTesting and see for yourself.
How to Get Started With Automated Test Scheduling
For Record and Replay:
- Go to Replay a Suite under Record & Replay in the CrossBrowserTesting app
- Select one of your suites. Note: You need a previously saved suite in order to schedule a Record & Replay test. Follow these directions to find out how to create a Record & Replay suite.
- Scroll down to “Suite Schedules” and click “Add Schedule”
- Decide if you want to run the suite on a daily, weekly, or monthly schedule and set a time for it to run. Choose if you want notifications via email or Slack and select “Add Schedule”
For Automated Screenshots:
- Go to View Test Results under Screenshots in the CrossBrowserTesting
- Select which screenshot test you’d to schedule and click “Test Results”. Note: You need to have previously run a screenshot test in order to schedule one. Follow these directions for how to take an automated screenshot of your website.
- Click “Add Schedule” and set to run daily, weekly, or monthly at a time of your choosing. Select whether you want notifications through email or Slack and click “Add Schedule”
That’s it — just a few steps to functionally and visually testing your UI on a continuous basis with no code.
If you want to learn more about Scheduling for Record & Replay and automated screenshots, join us in our upcoming webinar to learn just how easy it is to start scheduling your tests today. We’ll run through the new feature and give example use cases of Scheduling that you can immediately start implementing in your workflow.
We’ll also go through CI with Jenkins to further our pursuit of continuous testing in CrossBrowserTetsing for teams that may be interested in Selenium automation.
