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 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.
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.
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 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 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.
Designed to Automate Testing
EveryStep was designed to allow anyone to quickly and easily create monitoring scripts for their websites through simple point and click actions.
Once you have recorded a script you can:
• Save script locally for later use
• Upload script to Dotcom-Monitor and run from locations around the world
• Run the EveryStep Script player from your local machine
The EveryStep scripting tool was designed with the flexibility to allow you to specify how frequently you wish to check your site, from as little once every few hours to every minute.
When errors are detected, EveryStep emails you error diagnostics in real time. Instantly discover the root cause of issues and avoid customer frustration and poor user experience.
Whether you need to utilize the Rich Internet Application (RIA) tools on interactive sites with Flash, Silverlight and AJAX, capture onscreen images, or manually edit a script in the script panel, all of these tools are at your fingertips in the free version of the EveryStep Scripting Tool.
As the website monitoring industry grows, Dotcom-Monitor is constantly evolving it’s toolsets to provide you with everything necessary for monitoring your infrastructure.
We saw a need in the development cycle for a simple scripting and browser automation tool for testing web applications. We built the EveryStep scripting tool from the ground up with this very purpose in mind.
