Areas for QA Focus

  • [QA] Suggested areas of focus for QA:
    • Hearty re-test of ToS/PP feature, please do this first so we can get hotfixes in if needed
    • Test email addresses with uncommon chars in them (like '+')
    • Test that on all devices you can select an email address in the picker by clicking on the email in addition to the radio button.
    • vet new caching setup for domain names - try an email from a domain name that hasn't been tried on beta yet. is there a delay? try it again, is there a delay? Is the delay uncomfortable?
  • In addition, QA should focus on the following:
    • iOS compatibility
    • Android (older than 3.0) compatbilility
    • FF compatibility across all four channels


  • Train 23: 03-14-2012
