Why testers love Bonfire
We all know the pressure most agile development teams endure as their release date gets closer.
It’s not uncommon for the QA team to be desperately under-staffed, while developers are cramming in last minute functionality and there is a growing mountain of bug fixes to verify. During this crunch time, the last thing testers need is to be slowed down by their tools.
And that’s where Bonfire comes in. There are several key features making Bonfire an invaluable tool for anyone performing manual testing:
- In-app bug submission – Because Bonfire is a browser extension, you can quickly file a bug or feature improvement without ever leaving the web application you are testing.
- Annotated screenshots – A picture is worth a thousand words and Bonfire instantly allows you to crop and annotate a screenshot of the page you are on with ease.
- Templates – Create bug report templates to quickly populate fields with both static and dynamic content and reduce the repetitive data entry that often bogs down manual testing. Templates are shared across browsers so testers can access them from each of their testing environments.
- Test Sessions – Most bugs and improvements are typically found when testing a new feature or verifying the fix to another bug. That’s where test sessions come in. Start a test session for any issue – be it a requirement, story, or another bug – and Bonfire will track every regression, new bug, or epiphany discovered during testing. All tester activity in the session is captured for easy linking and time reporting.
Bonfire let’s testers focus on what really matters – the quality of the your software – and keep up with the speed of agile development.
