Administering Testify

The Administration is the last tab on the left side of the application. In this area, users with appropriate permissions can manage the settings of the entire environment. The administration is used to define the environment and the settings for the internal processes and use cases. All settings related to the management of issues/checklists and organization can be found in this area.

Export and import of data in Testify

Content creation is possible either directly in Testify by manual creation or by export/import. Using the context menu (the three dots) of the respective entity in the administration area, an Excel list can be generated or uploaded for download.

This feature is currently available for the following entities:

An empty (or pre-filled) exported Excel list can be manually filled with the desired content and then imported again so that Testify is supplemented with this data. This is especially convenient and efficient when multiple contents are to be imported at once.

To ensure that only those cells are updated for which there is also new data, the following rule exists:

  • Cell has a value: new value is saved

  • Cell has no value: old value of the cell is kept

  • Cell has value {clear}: old cell value is deleted

  • Optional columns: If an entire column is not to be changed, the column can be deleted in the Excel file and all entries remain unchanged.

Multilingualism

This feature makes it possible to translate the desired content before importing it. For this, columns can be inserted in the Excel list in the desired language. Example:

Title_en-US

Description_en-US

Title_de-AT

Description_de-AT

Title_nl

Description_nl
