User acceptance testing (UAT) is one of the last, yet most important stages in the application development lifecycle. During the execution of test cases, it is important for both IT and the UAT team to document defects as they are uncovered. Use the UAT defect log to:
- Track and record defects.
- Assign a severity level to defects.
- Create an action plan for issue resolution.
By documenting defects during the UAT process, IT will have a better understanding of what needs to be fixed before releasing the final product.
