Understanding the Test Run Overview Page
The Test Run Overview screen is a dashboard that gives you a quick snapshot of the current state of your test run. There are 8 tiles that provide information and summary level statistics on your test run. You can stay high level in your analysis or you can drill down into the issue details to take action and create your remediation strategies. This 8 tile view is created for each test unit.
Test Run Cards
Start/Stop and Assignments
This card has the start date and time of the test run. The statuses are Not Started, In Progress or Completed. And the card lists the name of the person the test run is assigned to. The start and complete time could be used to track your team's throughput and help with planning. Or it could point you to investigate further if the time elapsed is too long or too short and discover if there is a training opportunity.
The pages card gives you an indication of the size of the test run and lists the number of pages in the scope and their status.
Similar to the pages card, the components card lists all of the components in the scope of the test run and their status.
