I need detailed testing of a collaboration website that I've developed. I need all of the features tested, I need to check for spelling and grammer errors, I need to make sure the site works on all major browsers (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Opera), and I need to know what is confusing or missing. I need someone who will not only test the normal scenarios, but can think of possible scenarios that a user might take which would cause the application to experience errors. I want someone who can "break" the app - someone who is looking for bugs, not someone who is looking to make things work. I want someone who will work hard to try things that the developers did not think of and, upon execution, will show flaws in the app. Your goal with this project is to break the application. Try all kinds of combinations and scenarios to attempt and find bugs. I also want you to document suggestions you have or improvements to usability, based on what is confusing to you. And, of course, please tell me any misspelled words or grammar mistakes. By placing a bid, you agree that if you change data that causes others to not be able to log in and test, you will forfeit the project and receive no payment. It is very important that you understand that I cannot have you causing problems for other users. I will send you the URL for the site in a separate message. All problems, suggestions, and bugs must be fully documented with screen shots, and be provided to me in either MS Word, MS Excel, or .pdf format. Attached to this bid request is a brief description of the program's features.
The defect report will be due 3 days after the bid is accepted. You will provide a report at the end of 3 days of testing. I expect a full three days of testing. Please do not place a bid, test for one day, and then provide a report. After your report is submitted, I will have the coders fix the issues you report. This might take a couple of weeks. When all of the issues have been fixed, I need for you to test the issues you report again, to see that they have been fixed by the coder. I will release 50% of the funds when your 3-day report is submitted. I will then release the other 50% of your funds when I receive the re-test report on issues that were reported to the coder, but were not [url removed, login to view] will be several people testing at the same time. You will need to create your own users and test data, and please do not make changes to data that you do not create (including changing passwords), since others will be testing at the same time as you. 1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.
