Using the Test Run Section
When there are test runs that have been assigned to you, after logging in to axe Auditor, the Dashboard screen displays the Your Test Runs page (which may display multiple "pages" of test runs). Otherwise, the Dashboard screen will simply display a Welcome message.
Section Table Overview
The Your Test Runs table provides the following 7 columns of information to give you a quick overview of test runs assigned to you:
Test Case: The name of the test case is displayed.
Date Created: A date/time indicates when the Test Run was created. Note: This date/time stamp reflects your local time zone.
Status: The status of the Test Run (either 'Not Started' in grey or 'In Progress' in gold).
Test Units: The total number of Pages and Components that have been added to the Test Case is displayed (at least one page unit is required).
Issues: An underlined numeric value represents the number of issues that have been logged, and the link takes you to the 'Issues for...' screen. For more information, see Issues.
Flags: When items have been flagged for review, this displays how many exist for the entire test run, and is linked to the 'Flags for...' screen.
Actions: The buttons displayed are based on the status of the run.
- Not Started: The Start Testing button allows you to navigate to the Test Run Overview page for each, then click the same button a second time to initiate testing for a particular page to be tested with a status of 'not started'. For more information, see Start Testing Your Test Run.
- In Progress: Similarly, the Resume button allows you to view the Test Run Overview page for each, view additional details for those runs with a status of 'in progress', review pages with a status of 'complete', and start testing pages with a status of 'not started'. For more information, see Resuming Your Test Run.
- Edit Test Run: Click the down arrow, then select this option when you want to modify the test run. For more information, see Editing a Test Run.
- Edit Test Case: Click the down arrow, then select this option when you want to modify the test case associated with this test run. For more information, see Editing a Test Case.
