A day at HQ

The office, your house or a coffee place: where and when will you start and end your day? It’s your call, as long as you attend any required meetings and keep your team up-to-date on what you're doing!

Today you decide to go to the office. After you grab yourself a cappuccino, you first retest where needed and update the status accordingly. Afterwards, you move on to a call with the Customer Support team to triage a couple of bugs reported by customers, their reproducibility and impact. Now you are ready to move on to test the feature implemented by Vasilis - the ability to download multiple attachments from the secure Zivver email.

Just before lunch, you sit with Anubha and Ahmed to discuss the plan for the week. You go over the features to be implemented, discuss and understand the requirements, prioritize the work as needed, and prepare the schedule for regression automation. There are some changes in the Plugin session handling, and it needs to be re-tested thoroughly.

At noon you grab lunch with your colleagues at the restaurant downstairs and chat about the new design of Outlook introduced recently by Microsoft. Although enjoyable, your heated debate with Ahmed about whether dogs are better than cats needs to be put on hold - it’s time to put your discussed plan in motion. You’ll continue with the design of test cases for features to come, and start your automation of regression scenarios.

Before you leave for the day, you do a final check of your inbox to verify if the status of reported issues have changed and run any pending test scenario.
