Easier to write and maintain than automated UI tests

Pros: It is easy to write set up the tests, to run them, and to edit them as needed. No special knowledge or skill is needed for any of this.

The customer support is phenomenal, because you can always chat the Rainforest team and they get back to you right away.

Also it is easy to schedule runs, and they have really improved the visibility of results, as in, you can see exactly what happened when a tester went through the test including a screen shot, the directions given, and then notes from the tester about anything their description of any problem observed. Multiple (usually 3+) testers are assigned to a test per browser when you "run" a test.

Cons: False positives and false negatives are common. Mostly this is not a big deal, because they have multiple testers run through the same test in the same browser, so if one tester misunderstands the directions or makes some error, the Rainforest algorithm will automatically ignore that tester's bug report, so that you don't get a false negative for the overall run. But sometimes multiple testers will make multiple, different mistakes during a run, resulting in a false negative (i.e., a report of a run failure), even though the software actually worked fine. Oftentimes if a step is proving confusing to testers, you can easily re-word the test step to make it work out better.

We actually set up 50 users on our test systems, because when you run a few tests using a few different browsers, you want them all to use unique user logins so that their work doesn't conflict. You also have to think about how to design the tests such that multiple users can create and find objects within your web app such that their simultaneous usage does not cause conflicts.

Since the testers are real people using a real web app, you cannot run too many test configurations at the same time, otherwise you will get dozens of people hitting the (test) server simultaneously -- and who wants to pay for enough test servers of high bandwidth in order to handle high loads of traffic, when all you really want to test for these sorts of tests is application functionality and logic?

Overall: Rainforest provides end-to-end testing without the high cost of dedicated QA resources, and without the high cost of writing and maintaining automated UI tests.

Pros: RainforestQA has allowed us to automate testing of features that are not able to be tested . We also been able to start linking JIRA tickets to their RainforestQA tests which allows continuity between testing and dev tickets.

Cons: The site lacks reporting features that would allow us to better track our tests and coverage, but the Rainforest team helps provide these reports when we request them.

Rainforest lets you test web-based tools with ease. The team responds quickly to issues as well.

Pros: - Easier learning curve than other products

- Can run massive test suites quickly and get fast results

- Screenshots can be added to test steps easily

- Can run tests in a variety of browsers/environments

Cons: - Testing environments run slowly, which can make some features difficult to test (definitely not a deal-breaker)

- Images can be clunky to manage at times

I can describe Rainforest QA as an easy way to run a large number of manual tests.

Pros: Easy and straightforward to write manual tests.

No setup for multiple platforms and browsers.

Acceptable integration with CI systems.

Cons: The UI can be improved to better organize tests.

Writing tests could be easier by sharing screenshots between tests.

Rainforest has helped to transform our CI/CD pipeline.

Pros: The simplicity and ease-of-use for the utility is probably the best feature for us. We could probably get the same outcome with a more laborious process of writing/maintaining automated tests using Selenium or similar, but Rainforest allows us to quickly get up-and-running with new tests. Not only that, but nearly anyone can write them for us, which helps us find the bandwith to write them.

Cons: Occasionally we still get some false negatives that can be frustrating. (Admittedly, this is superior to the opposite problem of false positives.)

Rainforest provides a great hybrid of automated and real user testing.

Pros: There is no limit to the number of tests that can be executed simultaneously. Full end-to-end testing could be accomplished much more quickly than before.

Cons: No self-service test import feature. It is tedious at times to enter tests from scratch. If tests are written elsewhere first, it would be nice to be able to import them.

Your interface while took a little to learn was straight forward and got the job done well!

Pros: I like most that I can duplicate tests and make tasks that can be duplicated too. I also like the Slack integration that worked well with my business' workflow.

Cons: I liked least that the ability to search and sort through tests was not fully optimized. It would be nice to be able to use filters and sorting to find the tests I need more efficiently especially when there are hundreds we've created.

Love Rainforest QA

Pros: Test are super easy to build, and have been very happy with the results. Working with the QA team has been extremely easy and they are also quick to reply to any questions.

Cons: The platform has been super easy to use, and run large amounts of test. I'm still getting used to the interface but think, but no major dislikes so far.

Pros: It is so accurate in testing all my test cases and rain forest made me easy to duplicate my test cases.

Overall: i used rain forest in many of my recent projects and it's made my life easier to run the test cases in bunch and duplicate my test cases. I am very pleased to customer support and taking the reviews from customers.

It is really easy to write the tests, to tag them, to run them, also It let me to be more confident

Pros: Scheduler to run tasks, a lot of platforms to run my tests, very helpful and quickly customer service, you make me feel that my money works everything. Also to mention that the new feature looks so good I just want to try it, also the goals of the company creating job opportunities is incredible awesome.

Cons: Some testers are nor reading carefully the instructions, I created a test that the user need to remind a code, the reason it is because is dynamically and also the tests is evaluated by more than one tester. So a feature to create notes to the tester, or well probably just a pen will do it.

Overall: Easy to use

I am not an intensive user, I like the application very much, but features are missing

Pros: ease of use

support is really nice and effective, they are available and solve your issues and they make it enjoyable

Cons: on the missing features side, I would say:

- the current repository is done for "a single" application. For larger companies with multiple applications, it can quickly become a nightmare to identify what feature belongs to what application, what module of the application, etc.

That's the only one I see for the moment.

Overall: fast and reliable execution, friendly and effective support

Overall it was a very positive experience

Pros: The ability to run exploratory tests is very helpful. The fact that your application is being tested by different people gives us a broad and reliable feedback. I also like that we can run tests in different browsers and different platforms. Something that is harder arrange in our office.

Cons: The browsers are pretty slow so sometimes something can be marked as bug but it's just a slow machine.

Few words? Outstanding!

Pros: Its extremely convenient to use. Just run a test suite before deploying to production. You can be sure if you did not break things which were already working. It has good integrations.

Cons: Custom variables and screenshots are slightly difficult to maintain. There are cases when the test environment changes and changing the screenshots is difficult.

I enjoy the new interface, it is easier to find and edit tests.

Pros: The ease of use and how many testers you can access at once. I also am very pleased with the Customer Support team.

Cons: Reviewing the tests is clunky and difficult. I often abandon the review before getting a few steps in.

Overall: Ease of testing on a wide array of platforms.
