How to Copy Steps

In addition to adding, editing, and moving steps, you can copy them as well. The goal with tests is to make them as easy to edit and maintain as possible. Make sure you are familiar with the benefits and how to use Reusable Snippets.

Copy steps within a test instead of embedding another test if there are variations between steps or you want to change items. For example, let’s say you have a form where you need to fill in multiple similar fields such as email, but the addresses are unique. In that case, copying steps is more efficient.
