revised How can I create a bug report
the author is clearly talking about writing bug reports but the title and some of the text said "manual report" which doesn't make sense.

How did you write the tests in Test Studio? Coded using C# or using their record feature?

comment Responsive website testing tools
Firefox has a built-in responsive design tool (tools > web developer > responsive design tool) and so does Chrome (in the developer tools).

comment Is there a good mature SaaS development checklist?
Building (or adding to) your own checklist is probably the best solution since it will be customized to meet your needs. If you have a blog it may not be a bad thing to publish the more general items for others to see and get ideas from.

I think the ability (skill) to do internet research well is something broadly useful to most disciplines - not just testing. I also think it's important to write about the solutions to problems you find in case someone else has the same problem.

comment from Merchandising Major to QATester
No one is ranting - I'm merely stating an opposition to your use of the word. I think what you have written proposes a narrow view of testing and maybe an overly-broad view of someone's impact on ensuring quality. That's fine, we disagree.

I disagree with your use of "please avoid the term 'tester', especially in interviews". That's how I self-identify and I think it's a more accurate term.

comment Testing matrix: occurence/impact/probability of bug
"I would expect testers to document every possible way they could test their owned areas.. This allows them to communicate what they WILL and WILL NOT test. Both are equally important for communication up the management chain." - I completely disagree. The higher you go up the management chain the less the executives care about the details of 1. documenting everything (bad idea in general) 2. the specifics of what you did / did not test.

I would be careful about stating you know what communicating professionally is like at a company you don't work at.

Do you use the Heuristic Test Strategy Model (satisfice.com/tools/htsm.pdf) when designing tests? Is that in your curriculum?
