Learn the Screener workflow for reviewing UIs. Each UI state under test has one of the following statuses:

NewA new UI state that has not been reviewed yet.
ChangedA UI state that has changed visually when compared to its accepted baseline.
AcceptedA UI state that is visually the same as its baseline

OR has been reviewed and accepted by a team member.

RejectedA UI state that has been reviewed, found to have defects, and rejected by a team member.

1. Start Reviewing

When a test has Changed or New UI states, it will show a Review button:

Clicking on the Review button will display a list of your UI states filtered to only those needing review.

Click on the first UI state to start reviewing:

2. Review UI State

You will be presented with screenshots of the selected UI state:

E2E Review Screenshots

If a baseline exists, a side-by-side view will be displayed with the baseline screenshot on the left-hand side and the current screenshot from the latest build on the right-hand side.

Changed UI states will include highlights of visual changes directly overlayed on the screenshots.

After reviewing the UI state, you can either:

  • Accept: if the screenshots are as expected, which will set the current as the new baseline (tip: keyboard shortcut is Shift + Up Arrow).
