At Launchable, we are on a mission to make software testing faster and smarter. While we are focused on helping teams build data-driven pipelines, we are also obsessed with helping improve developer experience.
That’s why we are over the moon excited to share the latest dev-focused release: Test Notifications via Slack.
The new free Slack integration sends real-time notifications to developers of software test results directly, rather than relying on email or CI notifications. These personal alerts help you move your pull requests forward without unnecessary context switching waiting on test run statuses.
Developers context switch a wild amount any given day. The responsibilities often cover so many areas – Developers spend more time testing, maintaining, and securing existing code than they do writing or improving code.
With so much on your plates already, as a developer you don’t have the luxury of abundant free time. Asking developers to step out of your daily flows to check on test session statuses via email and CI is not an effective use of your time.
With the number of people using Slack daily exceeding 10 million, we understand that as a developer you are likely amongst the masses that rely on the messaging tool to keep in touch with your comrades and get updates in real time. Now you can add personalized Test Notifications by Launchable to the list of alerts Slack can include.
Avoid excessive noise with general blanket alerts. Setup your personalized Test Notifications through Slack and only get updates on test sessions run against your branches, pull requests, or other test sessions you care about. Continue moving your pull requests forward without the unnecessary context switching while waiting on test run statuses.
After setting up a subscription, Launchable’s Test Notifications sends you a personal message for each new test session that matches your subscription criteria. If a test fails, the notification includes a link to view the results in Launchable, as well as a summary of the failing tests.
That means when your test sessions finish, you can immediately get to work merging a PR or triaging failures. You can also create subscriptions to receive personal notifications about test sessions run against your branches, pull requests, or other test sessions you care about.
Who doesn’t love staying informed without constantly having to check for updates?! 🙌
Stop juggling your email inbox, Git hosting service, and CI system for updates. Quit clicking through clumsy CI interfaces to get to the important test information. Quickly deep dive into test results by jumping from notifications to the Launchable test dashboard.
