New User Tutorial & Upcoming Features

The Testomato team is happy to announce that we’ve put together a short user tutorial and it’s ready for action! The tutorial was created to introduce our basic features to those who are new to Testomato.

However, it will also be available to our existing users as well as a quick guide to make sure you’re getting the most out of your tests!


The tutorial covers the following:

  • Adding projects to your user account
  • Adding new tests to your projects
  • How to schedule your test suites
  • Managing your notifications

While this is an exciting extra that we’ve been working hard to implement, we still have a long way to go.

The team has been finalizing our next steps on Testomato’s roadmap, and we thought we’d share a sneak peek of what’s coming up in the future.

A Dashboard Redesign

Currently, we feel that some of our dashboards do not offer the easiest or cleanest experience to our users. And since, this is a major part of what we feel Testomato is all about, our designer has been planning a complete overhaul to bring us back to the basics.

We’re planning to redesign the following:

  • The Main Dashboard where you view all your active projects
  • Each individual Project Dashboard
  • The History Dashboard where your test suite results are displayed

Take a look below at one of our initial wireframes from our designer. What do you think?


Monthly Email Reports

The second thing we’d like to add in the coming months is a monthly email report. This would offer users an overview of their account, including things like a summary of errors found and the uptime of your website throughout the month.

A monthly report would let you view a project’s performance over time, and an added plus would be that we get to touch base with all of you each and every month!

User Scenarios

User scenarios are something we’ve been working on for some time now, and it’s a more complicated feature that will take us a lot more hard work. Adding scenarios will definitely be a step-by-step process!

Right now, we support testing forms pages separately, but we would eventually like users to be able to test a sequence of actions and simulate real user flows within a website or application.

The first step in our long list will be to add support for logging into an application within a single test. This means that you’ll be able to access pages that require you to sign in.

Since this part of our plan is still in the preliminary stages, this step is just the beginning. The whole team is looking forward to adding more complex scenarios to the roadmap!

This is just a sneak peek of what’s to come, but we’ll be sure to share more details and news every step of the way.
