EveryStep Scripting Tool

Powerful and easy-to-use web testing automation.

What is the EveryStep Scripting Tool?

Record Script

Record Your Own Interactions with a Website

Mouse movements, hovers and clicks can all be recorded. Once a page has loaded you can select or enter keywords on the page to verify they exist. Select images or sections of an interactive application such as AJAX, Flash or Silverlight to verify that they show up every time the script is replayed.
Verify Script

Verify the Script Runs Successfully

Once you have recorded a script, you can play it back in the script editor to ensure there are no errors. If any errors are detected a prompt will give you the option to filter out those errors when automating the script.
Edit Script

Manually Edit the Script

After recording a script, if you find the need to inject certain verification steps into the middle of the script, or add time delays or timeout counters, you can simply right click the location you wish to change in the script editor and add the necessary tasks.
Record Script

Save the Script

You can save the script to a local file to edit or replay later, or you can upload it to a Dotcom-Monitor account to play back the script from multiple locations around the world.
Replay Script

Replay the Script

Schedule the script to play back in a continuous loop using the EveryStep script player. Set a frequency as often as one minute to replay the script and check for errors. The results of each playback are recorded on your local machine, and you can set up the player to send you email alerts if any errors are detected.
Analyze Script

Analyze the Results

Once you have recorded script playback details you can open the report to analyze the data from a number of different views. The report shows you overall percentages of page load speed for each type of element, a list of the fastest and slowest loading elements on the page and even a waterfall chart detailing the progress and speed of each element in real time.
