Configuration tour

Sometimes while I'm testing a new application, I struggle to get started. To help me focus and better understand my testing, I use application tours to support my testing. One the tours that I use is the configuration tour.

The configuration tour is similar to the variability tour and the data tour, but this time we are looking specifically for persistence and how it affects product features. Attempt to find all the ways you can change settings in the product in a way that the application retains those settings.

For a more descriptive look at using application tours, see an article I did for Software Test and Performance a few years ago. (It starts on page 20.)
