Using Tags and Notes

Applies to CrossBrowserTesting SaaS, last modified on January 10, 2023

You can #tag your complete tests or individual test results by using hashtag prefixes in your notes, just like you would with Twitter. These are helpful to flag issues and group certain tests together for searching and sharing.

How tagging and notes work

  • After a test is completed, you can add notes to the test itself or a single results of the test, like a video recording, or single screenshot result. This applies to Live Tests, Screenshots, and Selenium Tests.

  • To add a tag, simply prefix a word with the hash symbol (#) and you will see these tags highlighted in the notes box. As you type, an autocomplete dropdown will appear with suggestions to help you choose tags you've used previously.

  • Once you have finished adding your notes with any tags, save the notes to review and perform searches.

  • The notes and tags are easily viewable on the History pages listing your tests.

  • On the Search page, you can search for tags or keywords in your notes to quickly see those tests and results grouped together.

  • A shared link can be created for the search to share those results with others.

Tag restrictions

  • Can only use letters, numbers, and underscores.

  • Must contain at least one letter (cannot be all numbers).

  • Case insensitive. Any upper-case letters will be converted to lower case.

  • Accepts Unicode.
