Simplify Manual Testing With Testpad

Automation can significantly enhance delivery throughput and product quality, but it can be costly to implement and maintain. This is particularly true for tests that are complex, mimic human behavior, or are rarely executed. Exploratory, user experience, and user acceptance testing are just a few test types where manual practices are the best approach.

Many of today’s testing tools are built for quality assurance (QA) teams who have significant technical skills and will be using these tools as platforms for automation. However, the tool’s workflow, the degree of documentation, and the setup can be overkill for QA roles performing certain manual tests. Advertised as a “spreadsheet-checklist hybrid on steroids,” Testpad provides a test case management platform that maintains the feel of Microsoft Excel (which is still a popular test case management tool) and minimizes the technical jargon and specifications in the documentation. A key Testpad goal is to motivate everyone to test on a common platform whether they are in a business or IT role or even external to the organization. Testpad is gradually expanding its integration partners; qTest, Jira, GitHub, and Pivotal Tracker are just a few out-of-the-box integrations currently available.

Our Take

Testpad takes a unique approach to test management. It focuses on enhancing the manual testing experience by providing intuitive features that are natural to both technical and non-technical roles. However, organizations looking for automation capabilities will likely need to look at other options as Testpad’s focus is on manual testing.
