In a prior blog post, I wrote about the limitations of automation. Today the Toffee team is pleased to announce support for mixing automated and manual steps inside a single script. This fulfills Toffee’s design goals of both embracing automation, while accepting its limits.
Toffee Composer now supports:
- Mixing automated and manual test steps together in a single script. You get the speed and consistency of automated tests, and the reach and simplicity of manual test steps.
- Defining predefined actual results for manual tests, so the tester can choose a predefined outcome with a single click.
- Requiring testers to enter an explanation for why they chose any actual result.
- Allowing testers to enter an explanation for any chosen actual result, whether required or not.
Watch the tutorial video below for instructions on integrating manual steps into your Toffee Composer test scripts.
