Smart Reporting Enhancements

Failure reporting enhancements

Custom failure reasons can now be edited for administration purposes. Users can add custom failure reasons to add clarity and to simplify report viewing. Click here for more details.

Multiple drivers support

Users can now see multiple drivers (devices) side-by-side on the same reports. This allows multi-device scenarios (such as calling from phone A to phone B) to be viewed under a single test execution report. Click here for more details.
