Adding Delays in Automated Test Cases

Updated by Adnan Pandjou

Sometimes during an automated test, loading times from screen to screen can vary between high-end and low-end devices. To account for differences in loading times, and to prevent the automation from performing an action prematurely, we allow our users to introduce delays between screens where some load time is required. To add delays during an automated test, complete the following three easy steps:

  1. First, simply click on the clock icon, and select the amount of time you'd like to delay by.
  2. To add a delay in an existing test case, navigate to the test case you wish to edit under automated tests cases, and enter the edit view.
  3. Hover your mouse between the two screens you wish to add a delay to, click on the clock icon, and select the desired duration for the delay.
