It is impossible to automate all test cases, so it is important to determine which ones to be automated first. There are some top candidates like:
- Repetitive tasks are primary candidates. Not only are those tasks boring, but they’re often the ones where mistakes are most common.
- Tests that require multiple data sets. Rather than manually typing in all the information into fields, automate the process to read in information from a data source, and automatically type it into the respective forms.
- Tests that run on several different hardware or software platforms and configurations.
- Manually exporting bulk of data, crunching the numbers, and making detailed graphs is time-consuming. You can invest in a tool or automation strategy that will do the task for you.
