Duplicate Tests: More Efficient Dashboard Management

Duplicate tests reduces setup time to get you testing faster!


We’re always looking for ways to make automated monitoring more user-friendly and efficient. Duplicate Tests is our next step towards a faster test creation experience in Testomato.

Instead of having to add similar tests manually, you can now copy existing tests to your project dashboards with one click!

Important noteThis post was updated in July 2015.

Reduce Redundant Data Entry

As developers, we know how important saving time can be for the team. Copying is one of those functions that never fails to make life easier!

Many of you are working with projects that require you to create similar tests for the same page. Although adding new tests is a quick process for smaller web projects, we realized that for large-scale projects test creation was eating into time that could be better spent on other tasks.

Duplicate Tests will allow you to quickly create exact copies of existing tests, and remove the need to frequently re-enter the same information.

Don’t forget you can also drag & drop new test boxes around your project dashboard to organize them!

How to Duplicate a Test

  1. Click on the project you’d like to view or select a project from the All Projects menu in the top right corner.
  2. Hold Shift (on Macs Cmd) and click on the boxes you’d like to duplicate.
  3. Click Duplicate at the bottom of the page.
  4. Click OK to confirm. All new tests will be copied as disabled checks.

Tell Us What You Think

As a team, we never stop listening. We appreciate any and all suggestions about new stuff we add, existing features, and ideas you have about things you’d like to see!

The feedback we receive from you is an amazing opportunity to hear how we’re doing, what we can do better, and we also really enjoy getting to know you.

Our goal is that anyone using Testomato will be able to implement automated testing into their own development. By creating a service that is simple and easy-to-use, we hope that you can avoid performance problems and improve your web projects.
