Now Export All Test Issues To XLSX Format

Your feedback is the fuel to our innovation. With every feature update we want to ensure our users have no roadblocks while executing tests using LambdaTest.

Considering your feedback for Issue Tracker, we have now added the feature to export all your test related issues in a spreadsheet (XLSX format)  

Earlier we had the option to export in PDF, however when a user logs in multiple issues it becomes difficult to consolidate for monitoring or sharing purposes. 

How to get there? 🚀 
As you sign-in, 

Click on issue tracker
Select the issues you want to export
Click on Export and select Export to XLSX

All you have to do is run a performance capability using our Desired Capabilities and get a complete understanding of how your website looks and acts across different browsers.
To get started, refer our documentation on Lighthouse Performance Metrics Using Online Selenium Grid

Now Reproduce Geolocation Tests To Make Debugging Easy

The Geolocation feature has been a real game changer for our real time testing users. However, we realized the challenges of reproducing a bug when you test your website for different countries.🌏

Until now, a user would mark the bug and share it across the team. The team members' challenge while debugging was to relaunch the same test environment, especially the test location, unless they do it manually🔄

Now you can Reproduce the Geolocation tests with just a single click. All you have to is click on the link provided, which will include your changed location. Whenever you relaunch the test using the link, it will launch with the same location. So it eliminates the need to change the location manually while you are busy debugging.🚀 

To use this feature, you can go to the 'Issue Tracker' to check your bug's status, you will see a link to your test (as shown below).

This is where our GeoIP reproduce feature comes into play; once you click on the test link, you will be redirected to your project management tool (Jira in our case), and you will be able to see an option to ‘Reproduce on LambdaTest’ with a link below.

 

Active Alerts For Concurrent Sessions In Real Time Testing

Earlier, if the user launches a new session while there is an ongoing session run by another team member, the session would abruptly stop! 🚫

It was getting a little difficult for teams, especially when everyone is working remotely. Hence we introduced an alerting mechanism for parallel sessions to help you function at ease. 🔔 

Now, you will be prompted whenever you are exceeding your maximum concurrent sessions limit (depending on your plan). This gives you time to intimate other users and ask for an ETA before you launch a session of your own, making it easier to work together as a team and plan the workflow.  



Now Capture Screenshots Behind Logins For Mobile Browsers

Earlier, we extended our screenshot testing capabilities by offering login profiles through which you can capture automated screenshots of pages behind login. This feature was only available for desktop devices. 📵

Now, you can capture screenshots behind login pages for mobile websites or web-applications as well.🚀

To get started, refer our support doc capturing screenshots behind login page.
