What do you like best?

The most interesting with this tool is the fact we can log everywhere with every computer. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

- The tool is very long. The reaction time after a click is very long

- The report is not precise enough. I would like to see results about all steps. We only can see results about test case :(

- When you open a suite, the first sub-suites open themselves automatically. I would like to choose by myself which one I want to open.

- Reporting UI is not really nice

- It is a pity not to be able to modify the test cases during execution Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

- I like to know the percentage of the work done

- Tracking the progress of executions is very useful Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Response from Shriti Grover of TestCollab

Thank you for the review :-)

- We have implemented new measures to improve speed of the software this week. If you still face any problem, please feel free to message us.

- Can you please let me know in which report, you would like to see step wise result as currently you can see step wise result by clicking on each test case name in that execution..

- Can you please message us about this as I just checked several times but a sub-suite does not get opened until you click on it. So, maybe I am unable to understand the problem.

I will be happy to have a call and make sure all problems you are facing are resolved.

Regards,

Shriti

What do you like best?

Very usable UI compared to other solutions in the same price point, and still prettier than Zephyr standalone. Workflows out of the box are very simple and the ability to create templates is perfect for generating smoke test cycles, while tagging can be used in conjunction with execution templates to generate targeted regression execution suites Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Graphs cannot be filtered. The reports are not very configurable. The inability to remove test cases from test cycles is irritating. Custom fields cannot be used for filtering in the new UI. Failing to set the assigned user before saving selected test cases to an execution removes selections which is poor UX when a handful of tests in nested suites were chosen. The timer on the test is a bit much, it would be nice to have a way to clear time data from all executions as it does not paint a good picture of how long a cycle would take us if someone left the window open for several hours over lunch or something. A simple field for a manual entry of time required would be fantastic for estimating the length of test cycles. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to reuse tests which provides an easier way to ensure we are thoroughly testing each iteration of our software solution. This is a major time saver and allows us to update tests easily when new workflows are implemented that impact existing tests. There is easy visibility into what has been tested by adding executions to milestones and allows us to see how many tests are run on average, as well as find tests linked to development tasks in the even a bug gets out so that we may implement new strategies to reduce bugs in the future Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Test collab promises a lot, especially when dealing with test cases that can be used across multiple projects (when for instance you're declining the same product to different clients with some specificities). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Performances drop significantly as you add more test cases and users to your project.

Many features are half-finished (linking test cases, could be improved and be less rigid), there are still bugs (we have had "ghost" test cases showing up in our database).

The UI is quite stark and you cannot fully preview a test case when in a test plan page, requiring to enter the test case page (which means loading a page, which takes a long time when your project starts to grow).

It is not possible to create your own reporting template, you have to use those included with Test Collab, and in our case none of them are suitable for our needs.

Overall the Test Collab still feels like a beta. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

There are probably better and cheaper alternatives. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We lacked a common solution for testing our product across all platforms and Test Collab provides that. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Test Collab is very user friendly to use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like the ability to have a base set of tests that can be edited. But running them in categories or by section is super helpful when testing through issues or problem areas. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I'm not a fan of the interface where you need a separate screen. Maybe a minimized version with a pass, fail, pause option only (like a mini tab on the side of the screen)...?

I would also suggest some sort of interface allowing the importing of excel/csv files with test cases into testcollab. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Section off a plot of time to enter test cases and organization Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I'm able to estimate and track testing progresses, and what has been covered by other testers on my team. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Hi Brian,

Thank you so much for the review. We do have a setting to disable the separate screen of test execution. You can ask you account administrator to disable "Sequential popup" in general settings. You can read more about this here-
