How to set Test and Defect reminder notification?

Reminder notification emails can be automatically sent to the relevant testers and defect owners who are currently blocking the test progress. 

From within a Project -

  1. Hover over the Tests tab and select Test List
  2. Select the relevant Tests and click on Send Reminder
  3. Add a note that will appear in the email notification, then click Send Reminder

    Send reminders only for overdue tests
    Select this option if you wish Panaya to only initiate email notification for overdue tests
    When selected, Defect Owners will not receive email notifications



Who will receive the notification?

  • Testers assigned to Ready to Test Steps
  • Defect Owner - for Steps with associated open Defects
  • If no Tester or Defect Owner is assigned, the notification will be sent to the relevant Project Manager

Can't find this button?
The Send Reminder button is only available for users with the Mass Edit permission

Good to Know!
If multiple reminders are initiated for the same users, a single notification will be sent with specification of relevant Steps and/or Defects
