How to Submit a Video Walk-Through

Learn how to submit a new test suite request using a screen recording.

Overview

A video walk-through is a screen recording of the test you want to be written. We recommend using CloudApp or Loom for easy recording and sharing of video file URLs. To help clarify what you want the test authors to write, narrate the actions you take and the expected results you want them to verify.

Here’s an example of a video walk-through for Amazon.
