How a Website Testing Project works
The aim here is to agree what the testing should focus on and on what browsers and devices the testing should be carried out on.
Other factors to consider are where issues are to be raised and how test results are reported.
Also, scheduling the testing date(s) is key and you can view my Bookings Calendar to check availability.
Issues are raised as they are found, in the method agreed: this could be in your own issue tracker – such as JIRA, DoneDone, RedMine etc – or within an Excel document, or perhaps a Google doc, or, where applicable, within my own hosted JIRA issue tracker.
A Test Summary Report includes sections such as Overview, Main Findings, Gap Analysis, Deliverables, Testing Types Performed, Test Browsers & Devices, Bugs Statistics and Summary of Main Bugs.

- * Working with Developers, Designers, Project Managers.
- * Testing can be focussed on the most important functionality or can be generalised, to cover all areas of the website.
- * Testing can be added in phases, as new functionality is developed and available for testing e.g. on a sprint/iteration/release basis.
- * Most cost-effective time for testing.
- * Find Bugs before website is released to the public.
- * All functionality can be tested at this stage, and emphasis can be given to certain functionality depending on priorities.
- * Still a cost-effective time for testing.
- * Testing at and around the go-live stage, to find any last-minute issues
- * Testing new Features and Functionality
- * Finding Bugs in enhanced websites
