I have been using Testim extensively for two months and here are some of my thoughts.
My Background & Getting Started with Testim:
I am a college student who has limited coding (basic python) and no test automation experience.
Overall, I thought the tool was easy to use and quite powerful. I was able to create test really quickly as the tool works almost as if you are doing screen recording. The amount it takes to click through your process you wanted to test is generally how long it takes to create the test. However, the most time consuming part was after the initial recording, when you have to go back and make sure your process was recorded appropriately.
In addition to using Testim for quality assurance testing, we also took advantage of the tools ability to create test data. For our testing purpose, we used to have to manually create 20 - 30 test orders in Salesforce. Now with the automated tests, we just need to update our test parameters and Testim automatically creates our test data as it runs the tests.
- Easy to learn, no coding required
- Stable test runs
- Quick test creation
- The ability to recognize and adapt to layout changes
Areas of Improvement:
Better help documentationThe help documents on the website are great source of learning. They cover all the general topics. However, I found that sometimes the articles could small details that are key to making the tests work. I wish there were step-by-step instructions with some of the articles. Maybe also a Q&A of common user questions.
A Lack of CommunityThe Live Chat function was very helpful. However, there is limited source of help/community beside the live-chat and the help document center. It would be nice to have a community where people share their insights and problems.
Test Organization/ Export Data Although the tests are organized beautifully on the UI, it would be nice if I could export a list of tests and test parameters in Excel format.
Hope this helps!
