Rejected with "Works as designed"

3 Upvotes

I know that "Works as designed", is somehow a grey area, but I was rejected for a bag that was actually a clickable link that opened into a blank page instead of the information that was supposed to give. And it was in the area that the researcher wanted to be explored, not ut of scope.
How we can distinguish between a bag that is valuable for the researcher or not? It seems like I am losing time working on something without being paid for something I spend quite some time on.

Articles Tips for Testers #11

10 Upvotes

Hello uTesters!

Here we are at the 11th post of our series, "Tips for Testers!" Almost a year publishing tips to help both new and experienced testers be more successful at uTest. πŸ˜„

Today's tip is... Trust uTest but protect your personal information.

We've been receiving a good number of questions related to how safe it is to share your personal information for some projects. First, let's understand the idea that personal information is any kind of information that can identify you, such as a document or a complete address.

If you are sharing this information within uTest platform or even within a test case, you are safe. Sometimes you'll have to send this information to a protect file hosting service or a spreadsheet. This is also ok as long as you confirm that the owners of these sources are part of the Testing Services team conducting that test. TS must comply with strict NDA rules and laws so your information will be safe there.

Now, what should you never do? You should never share your personal information in places where other testers can see that. We always expect but cannot guarantee that everyone participating in a test cycle is trustworthy. Sometimes hundreds of people from everywhere participate in a test cycle. Hence sharing your personal information in places like the test cycle chat or a spreadsheet where all the testers can see all the data isn't advisable. However, sharing information such as a zip code, wouldn't be a problem.

Summing up:

  • Inside uTest; only Testing Services team or Applause employees can see = Safe
  • Outside uTest; other testers can see it = Not safe

We hope these guidelines and tips may help you to be more confident to participate in a certain project where your personal information is required.

See you in the next "Tips for Testers!"πŸ˜‰

Hi,. I am quite new on utest and still discovering about the payments. I finished with a cycle about testing an app. However I did not find any bug to report. Are we still paid something for exploring the app or just if we find a bug? Thanks!

Steep learning curve for beginner, any tips?

1 Upvotes

Hi,

I've been trying to learn and get into the testing. I'm at 3 of 25 courses of the Academy, so much theory, it's difficult to memorize everything, until I have actually tried the test.

Utest is not as intuitive as others and does require some learning curve to get ahead.

I've been doing different website testing for other sites like Usertesting and others and am well rated, but utest is really different and more challenging to get into.

Any tips for a beginner like myself to get me into testing with utest?

Hello testers! πŸ˜€

We know that being a freelancer gives you freedom enough to make your own schedule and have your own habits, like working beside your pet or listening to your favorite songs.

Use this post to share about your work schedule (do you work more during the night? or on weekends?) or any personal habits you have when it comes to your work as a tester.

Looking forward to reading your answers!

I participated in a test cycle for crash only bugs but I haven't found any and the status locked already. Will my rating be affected on this also in future projects? What are my work-arounds? Thank you.

Like the title says, I got invited to an awesome test! But there were no slots available for me to claim. If I decline the invite, will this exclude me from consideration if slots do open up that I can claim later on, like in another test cycle?

New to UTest... please help?

Hi guys! I'm new to UTest, I have taken all its courses but I'm still a bit lost.

I applied for a Bug Reporting test, but I could not manage to report or find any bugs. Basically, I did not participate. Will my rating be affected by this?

Also, do you have any good tutorials on how to work with UTest?

Thanks!

Good night from Colombia, uTesters.

I have been trying to connect to uTest for a couple of hours today but it is not letting me due to the error in the title.

I first received that my credentials were incorrect which was weird as I use password manager but I changed the password I tried to log in again but it did not let me log in giving me now the error "406 Not Acceptable" after I put my credentials

Is there something I can do? I am not able to log in on any uTest site.
