How to use BugHerd for Test Scenarios

Sure, you can just let clients user acceptance test by randomly clicking through their new website. However, it's much easier if you agree and identify likely test scenarios and test cases before you begin. Once you've created a test plan, use BugHerd to create tasks around those UAT test cases and assign them to a particular member of the testing team, or your client for end user testing.

Make sure the test cases and tasks are real world scenarios that reflect the way an end user would interact with the website. Say you've built an e-commerce stall - create UAT test cases that cover what happens when a customer abandons their shopping cart, or tries to change an item. Creating user acceptance tests based on likely business processes means you're more likely to uncover any issues.

As the user acceptance testing is completed, any issues can be pinpointed easily using BugHerd, without the need for the tester to leave the website. Capture video for multi-step business processes, glitchy animations or simply pin the feedback to the page, right where the problem occurs. Let BugHerd capture the technical details like Operating system and browser and a screenshot to remove all vagueness from your feedback.

Benefits of effective user acceptance testing

Good user acceptance testing ensures that the website you've built for your clients can handle all scenarios actual users are trying to accomplish when they visit the website. It ensures visitors to the website will have no problems finding the information they need, performing any actions (like purchasing items, watching demos, working out if a certain business is the one for them) can be completed without a hitch.

User acceptance testing (UAT) ensures that the websites you build for clients are exactly what the client requested too. Anything you can do to make user acceptance testing (UAT) easier for your clients will go a long way to ensuring they have a great experience with your agency. Using BugHerd as a user acceptance testing (UAT) tool simplifies a complex process for your clients by letting them simply point and click on their website to report any feedback and bugs.

User Acceptance Testing Process

Who performs user acceptance testing (UAT) for a website build? While we've borrowed the term from the software development lifecycle, it's still a relevant stage in the business process of building a new company website. It's the stage where you and your clients make sure the website meets the acceptance criteria you agreed on. Here's where you can run your UAT test plan to confirm if the website meets it's purpose. Does it do what we need it to do? Do our visitors find the information they need? Can we get user feedback?

A good place to start is with test case creation. What do you need to test? Break and identify test scenarios in this plan. Then follow the How to use BugHerd for Test Scenarios below to create a perfect testing process.

What is user acceptance testing software, and how does a feedback tool with annotation features enhance the UAT process?
UAT software is designed for User Acceptance Testing, where end users evaluate the website, product or system before it goes live. A feedback tool with annotation capabilities allows users to provide detailed feedback by annotating directly on the software interface/website, making communication more effective and facilitating a smoother UAT process.
Can BugHerd support collaboration among UAT testers during the testing phase?
Yes, the feedback tool promotes collaboration by enabling testers to annotate and comment on specific elements of the software. This fosters clear communication among team members, helping them discuss and resolve issues collaboratively, ultimately leading to more efficient UAT testing.
How does the annotation feature of BugHerd improve the accuracy and bug reports in UAT testing?
The annotation feature allows testers to pinpoint and highlight specific areas within the UAT testing software, providing a visual representation of issues. This visual context enhances the accuracy of bug reports, making it easier for developers to understand and promptly address the issues reported.
Is it possible to track the history of annotations and feedback over different iterations of UAT testing?
Yes, a robust feedback tool such as BugHerd has a version control or a history tracking feature. This allows users to review and compare annotations made during different UAT testing phases, aiding in tracking the progress of issue resolution and ensuring that feedback from previous iterations is considered in subsequent releases.
Can BugHerd integrate with other project management or bug-tracking systems used in UAT testing processes?
Integration capabilities are crucial for a feedback tool. Seamless integration with project management and bug tracking systems streamlines the workflow by automatically transferring annotated feedback into these systems. This ensures that all relevant stakeholders have access to the information they need and that issues are tracked and managed efficiently throughout the UAT testing process.
Is User acceptance testing the same as Beta testing or QA?
During the website development process there can be many stages of testing and many different types of testing completed. Functional testing or system testing ensure that the website can handle the volumes of traffic required. Continuous testing throughout the development cycle is important, but there's certain testing once the site is built that's important too - primarily QA testing and user acceptance testing.

User acceptance testing differs from alpha testing or beta testing in terms of who conducts the testing. User acceptance testing is normally done by business users, while alpha and beta testing is done by end users.

QA or quality assurance testing is usually the first type of testing conducted once a website is built. It differs from user acceptance testing in that it's primarily to ensure that there are no broken links, typos, problems with navigation bars, etc. In the software development cycle QA includes regression testing, which is testing that a new feature hasn't broken other parts of the product.
When does Acceptance testing or User Acceptance testing, UAT occur in a website build?
User acceptance testing most commonly occurs after QA testing is completed. Unlike QA, UAT is more concerned with making sure that the website fits the requirements or reasons for being built.
UAT, User Acceptance Testing or UAT Testing - is there any difference?
"UAT" and "User Acceptance Testing" (or "UAT Testing") essentially refer to the same process: the final phase of testing in software development to ensure that a system meets the requirements and expectations of its end-users. While the terms "UAT" and "User Acceptance Testing" are often used interchangeably, "UAT Testing" explicitly highlights the testing aspect of the process. In practice, both terms are widely understood to refer to the same essential activity.
