This tab contains the test run and log panels:

  • The test run panel includes two lists: Recent Test Runs and Archived Test Runs. By default, the latest test run is on the Recent Test Runs list. To select a number of tests to be saved, use the Number of runs to save drop-down list.

    To archive a test run, right-click its name and select Archive Run in the context menu. Set the run as a baseline test, so it will appear on the Archived Test Runs list.
