Test Case Steps

Testmo supports different ways to enter and maintain test cases and test steps. Admins can configure the available templates, custom fields and field options globally or on a per-project basis. You can learn more about configuring custom fields.

By default, Testmo comes pre-configured with two case templates, namely Case (text) to manage test steps with a simple text field, and Case (steps) to enter steps in separate fields. Optionally you can enable more sub fields per step, to e.g. track the expected result, test data or other information.

Let's review the different typical use cases and configurations below. Note that you can change the default field config in Testmo, so you can further customize and/or add more templates.

Simple steps text field

The default Case (text) template is configured with a simple text field to enter test steps. This is a great choice for cases with short steps or for cases where you don't want to track separate step results.

Separate case steps

The default Case (steps) template is configured with separate test steps. This also enables separate test step results so you can select a status for each step during execution.

Separate steps with sub fields

You can optionally enable and name up to four sub fields for separate steps, so you can track additional details such as the expected results or test data for each step. You can learn more about editing and adding sub fields below.

Enabling sub fields

Testmo already comes with a Case (steps) template pre-configured. To edit and add sub fields for the included Steps field (such as Expected or Data), simply go to Admin > Fields.

  • Then click the Steps field in the Case Fields table

  • In the Edit field dialog, click the All projects options entry in the bottom list

  • From the Edit options dialog you can then enable and name up to four sub fields for the steps
