Definition of the day: Dashboard

Hey everyone,

Here is the definition of the day:

The Testing Status Dashboard

The image below is a chart on an excel sheet that anyone in the team can look at to show the status of a project at a glance. 

  • Green = Good
  • Orange = In Progress
  • Red = Bug or more info required

Happy Testing!
