The Test Library screen in Test Management allows you to create, edit, and organize your tests.

In QAComplete, you can create two types of tests:

  • Manual tests are items describing tests that should be performed by a user, with step-by-step instructions for each action.

  • Automated tests are items that have an automation script associated with them.

To start using QAComplete for test management, determine the organizational structure for your Test Library, then construct your tests.

Tip: To enhance your experience, your test items can include custom fields specific to your needs.
