Updated over a week ago

The rich text editor allows for fast and convenient formatting and structuring of your instruction texts and feature descriptions, making it easier to communicate complex information and highlight the most important aspects for our testers.

NEW: Since March 2023 you can add pictures right into your texts, to enhance your feature descriptions & test instructions and provide additional visualizations that guide our testers in your tests.

The editor is currently available for the following text fields:

  • Feature descriptions

    • Where can the feature be found?

    • Description (expected behavior and functions)

  • Test instructions for Exploratory and Test Case tests

    • Goal of this test

    • Out of scope

    • Additional requirements

How to use the editor

You will automatically see the editor whenever you edit one of the related fields, or create a new feature. On small screens, the options can be scrolled horizontally.

The formatted text will be displayed wherever the texts are shown in our customer interface and also to our testers and teamleaders.

Using the rich text editor is optional. It is still possible to provide and write plain text instructions.

Options in detail

Example use of all rich text options: (without pictures)

Pictures can be added anywhere into your texts. You can drag and drop them into the text field, copy and paste them, or search and upload from your system using the "Add Picture" button in the tool bar.

Good to know:

  • You can add an optional caption text to each image.
