What's New for January 2020?

We got a new booting screen!
 

Waiting for your tests to be ready? We’ve upgraded the UX in our booting screen to make it easier to customize with the information you need. 

 

Besides the new look & feel, we’ve split the screen into two parts, advanced and basic, with added functionalities. For example, you can see logs for specific sessions, filter information, see only added sessions to a current test that is running, and more!
