New Feature: Apply Rules to Multiple Pages

We’ve added Rules for Groups to allow you run a check on multiple web pages. You’ve been asking us for this feature, and we listened. Now, you can define a rule and apply it to a project or a group of checks. This has been one of our most requested features. Some of you have been kind enough to share your workflows with our team and told us it would be helpful to define a rule set for more than one page to avoid manually creating a new set each time. It took us awhile, and we’re very excited that it’s finally ready.

Easy Uptime Monitoring with Testomato

Site downtime can mean loss of revenue and user trust, so it’s important to stay one step ahead by knowing when your website is up or down. In addition to Testomato‘s automated website tests, we wanted to ensure you also have an easy way to check whether or not your website is available to users. That’s why we’re excited to announce Uptime Monitoring & Response Time for all your Testomato projects! How Uptime Monitoring Works Testomato automatically tests your web projects every 15 seconds to check they’re online and how quickly they’re responding. Projects on your dashboard (All Projects) will now display a new circle icon in green, orange,…

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 note: This post was updated in July 2015.

Testing Locations for Testomato Projects

The team is always working hard to find ways to improve the quality of our testing. So, we’re excited to introduce our newest feature – testing locations for Testomato projects! How It Works The Testomatobot is Testomato’s crawling tool, which we use to download the HTML code of your page content. Testing locations means Testomatobot now downloads pages and measures response time from 2 different places: Europe (Prague) US (Chicago, IL) Once we’ve downloaded your content, the data is transferred back to our central location where it’s processed, saved, and any necessary notifications are sent. When you add a new project in Testomato, we use your server…

Severity Level of Alerts for Email Notifications

Whether you’ve been using Testomato for a long time or just getting started, you may have noticed that incidents have different levels of severity. It’s true that some tests are for non-critical elements, and we thought it was about time we gave people the option to opt out of receiving alerts for these issues if needed. So, we created a useful new setting for your Testomato projects – severity level of alerts for email notifications!   How It Works Last month, we released email notification delay to keep users from getting results for false or short term issues. Adding the option to select a severity level for…

New Feature: Email Notification Delay

This is a quick post to announce a new feature to improve Testomato’s email notifications. We’re excited to introduce Notification Delay! How It Works Notification Delay will allow you to set a period of time that we’ll wait before we send you notifications about issues. If an issue is resolved during that delay period, the notification will be discarded and you won’t receive any emails from us. For example, setting a delay period of 10 minutes means that if we find an issue at 2:45PM, we will wait until 2:55PM to send you an email alert. Why We Added It We noticed…

Our community is very important to us and has always been great at helping us better understand what easy automated testing should look like for teams. Listening to our users is one of our best sources for information and ideas, and one thing you asked for was the ability to test pages that are only accessible with a password. We’re proud to announce the launch of a new Testomato feature: Password-Protected Area Testing! You can now create tests for pages that are password-protected on your website.   You’ll be able to test system administration, membership areas, and applications behind a…
