In the Desktop App, click to create a new Test.
Select the mobile device you’d like to emulate.
Click “Create Test” to begin training in the emulated device setting you selected, and add steps as you normally would for a mabl test (clicks, assertions, Flows, etc…)
What should I do before creating mobile web tests in mabl?
Before creating a mobile web test, a best practice we recommend is to analyze data from customer usage patterns.
This can be done using Audience reports in Google Analytics, or by connecting with product management or marketing teams at your company and review the data they’ve collected
What strategies can I use when creating mobile web tests in mabl?
Run the same tests against desktop and mobile devices and use Conditional Steps coupled with Flows to account for changes between the devices (navigation, resolution, lack of hover actions on mobile devices, etc…)
Maintain separate desktop and mobile device Tests and use Flows to reduce maintenance time if there are common steps between the different tests
How do I run mobile web tests?
Add them to a Plan as you normally would a Browser or API Test
Execute an ad-hoc run in the Cloud
