Conduct, record, and repeat manual tests

A fully-instrumented, configurable test runner captures detailed records of steps performed, behaviors observed, and the status of each test step. Pause testing to report a bug, even if it’s not directly related to the current test. High-fidelity defect reports go directly to the development team, including all the technical data needed to reproduce and resolve the error. Record tests for later playback to speed test sessions and enable automation.

Use Test Case Management

Visual Studio Test Professional 2013 includes Test Case Manager to help you define and manage your testing efforts with test plans. At any stage in the process, a simple query tells you where the project is in relation to the test plan. Testers can follow the test plan as they execute test cases and post the results to Team Foundation Server or Visual Studio Online, including any bugs that are found.

Deliver value regularly and predictably

New release management capabilities in Visual Studio 2013 make it easier to automate releases so you can deploy continuously. As release cadences accelerate, it becomes more difficult to automate deployment in repeatable, reliable ways while tracking simultaneous in-flight releases. Visual Studio 2013 enables you to define release stages, acceptance criteria, and approval workflows to automate the release process.

Create and manage lab environments

Automate your virtual lab environment with Visual Studio 2013’s Lab Management capability. Use templates to launch previous environment configurations for consistent environment testing, enabling you to provision lab environments quickly for testers and developers.

Capture requirements from the business team

Use the storyboard tool to easily capture lightweight requirements from stakeholders. You can foster new ideas, get feedback, and integrate the results with the development process. Plus, you can gain full traceability and visibility into the progress and quality of each requirement by tracking back-work items and test cases against business goals.

Integrate the customer view

Include stakeholders in the development process by capturing their rich feedback, including screenshots, audio, video, and attachments. You can then seamlessly integrate that feedback into the development process to make sure your team builds what the customer wants.
