Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with Zeenyx AscentialTest.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
I would like to see an improvement in the user interface. UI looks to be more trendy and attractive . I am looking forward to API testing and mobile testing with Snapshot technology allowing drag and drop capabilities that are similar to Windows and the web.
The product can be improved a little bit with regards to the UI as the panels are too many. This is the area where I feel improvement is needed.
Limitations are found to be primarily in the ux of the tool; for example when in doubt one often right clicks in an unfamiliar product to get unstuck, and AscentialTest lacks some of these fineries. Having to double click on certain fields in order to get into edit mode is a bit non-standard, and again some care needs to be put into the ux so that the user does not get stuck. The Elements Tree should be searchable, with hits when the control is Clipped, Hidden etc. The otherwise fine online Help lacks a “See Also” section. These are growing pains and being addressed.
Classes are not as object-oriented as I would like, but I am a programmer and not QA so I expect a lot. The interface has a lot of features and took a while for me to master, although I have to say transferring that to my part-time programmers has been very easy.
