In today’s post, we’ll show you how to automate a search form test using Testomato. Is testing the search function important?

In today’s post we’ll go over the different types of errors in our reports and the meaning of each error.  Error reports are meant to document when an error occurs on a website or in an application. Not only is it a great way to ensure you don’t forget about resolving it, but it’s useful for making sure that everyone is clear on what the error is. What’s in my report?
