Offsite Exploratory Testing Guidelines to Bug Reporting

Because it's such a good post, I'm stealing Anne-Marie Charrett's post from yesterday on "Do your bugs only glow when its dark?" In the post she outlines some guidelines she uses to report bugs when doing offsite exploratory testing:

  • Provide the time it takes you to write up the defects in your estimate

  • Get agreement on the level of detail for defect reports

  • Write up the bugs as you find them, don't let them queue up

  • Encourage customers to use a defect tracking tool
