For the past several months, we’ve been knocking off some highly sought-after platform features, and v3.0.4 is no exception. And with this latest release, we’ve made it even easier to choose the perfect testers for your project and integrate with more of the top bug-tracking systems.
Easier Tester Selection
When our customers create a new test cycle, we want the process to be as simple as possible. But we also want to put the highest degree of power and precision in their hands when it comes to building their testing team. One of the more common feature requests we’ve heard is to make it even easier to select testers for private test cycles. Our product crew has heard your cries, and we’re pleased to introduce a dramatic overhaul of the tester selection process when creating a test cycle.
We realized that every customer has a different set of needs when it came to finding exactly the right set of testers for their product. So we made it easy to search within testers and handpick the best candidates. After a test cycle has launched, the tester selection will even tell you which invited testers have accepted your testing invitation. Need more testers in a certain region? Finding and adding more will be a snap. Check it out!
More Bug Tracker Integration
More and more companies are using bug tracking systems, and we’ve long made it easy to move bugs from uTest into several popular systems. Until recently, we’ve supported Bugzilla, Jira, and Rally. With this release, we’re adding support for Mantis. We’ve also added support for Jira Studio, and we’ve improved our support for Rally. Lastly, our engineers have even built integration with the bug tracking systems of some of our biggest customers.
Is your favorite bug tracking system not yet supported? Let us know, and we’ll add it to our list.
More Handsets for Tester Profiles
If there’s one thing that’s true in this world, it’s that gadget makers never stop making new gadgets, and that gadget lovers never stop buying them. We’ve added a whole bunch of new devices to our database, including the iPhone 4, the iPad, and more. If you are a tester who has the latest and greatest mobile phone or tablet, make sure you update your tester profile with that information so we can assign you projects.
All the Rest
That’s not all! We’ve also worked on a couple of other smaller, but still important features:
- Search for test cycles by their ID
- Misspelled words are now highlighted in text boxes
- Dozens of bug fixes and behind-the-scenes improvements
