Test Case Management in Lean Testing has Changed

If you’ve been around long enough, you’ll remember that our first foray in test case management at Lean Testing was through the acquisition of Overlook.io, which we operated as a separate entity for a little while. Well, we quickly realized that managing two separate tools was not optimal for us or for our users, so we merged what was then our “bug tracking tool” known as Damn Bugs with Overlook.io to create Lean Testing: a comprehensive test management solution. The initial version of our test case management system was fairly limited in scope and functionality. To be perfectly honest, it was an experiment.

In simple terms, mobile deep linking is when you tap on a link in your browser and it takes you directly into a specific location in the corresponding mobile app. It might be a specific page of information or a product page.
