Adding Instructions to an Existing Test

Adding Instructions to an Existing Test Overview

New Instruction is an action available on the Test Details page and Slider View for test cases. Instructions are a great way to organize tasks being tested on your site.

Note: Instructions cannot be added before the opening PageInit Action of any test or between the last action of one Instruction and the first action of the next Instruction. This is to prevent any empty Instructions.

How to Add Instructions via Test Details Page

  1. Open a Test
  2. Hover over any action, an Insert Action ⊕ icon will appear, giving the option to insert a new action at the selected location
