In terms of what could be improved, I would love to be able to take the font of the application that the team is working in and upload it or import it into Eggplant Functional, so that the OCR is more accurate when it comes to that type of font. Because sometimes when you get into legacy applications where the fonts get a little wonky, they look really old, so a 1 could get mistaken for just an L. So I would love to have that part where it could read fonts that you import into it a lot easier for the OCR. Additionally, there is some stuff around images they need to tighten up. Sometimes it has a hard time finding fuzzy images. I couldn't really tell you what they need to brush up on with the images. But for the most part, it's on point. I would like the company to have a dummy desktop application that they could send or download from the site that you could run Functional against. One of the biggest hurdles we had to go over was when we got Functional and installed it - what do we use it against? We did not really have an application. So we had to just write automation against the calculator or write automation against Notepad or Microsoft Excel. It was kind of lost on some people. They would say, "Well, this is stupid. I actually want to see this being utilized against something that looks like an application." So I wish the company would come up with a dummy desktop application, something that doesn't require admin privileges. Just a little lightweight MSI file or RPM that you could put onto the machine that just has weird dropdowns or windows or buttons that you can click on just to test stuff against them. Something like that would be good.

The biggest issue I had was the crashing. You could be in the middle of setting up and writing up a nice little script and then it would crash. It was a common occurrence and frustrating but we handled it.
