Testing is a process of facilitating development team/ project team in improving the quality of software before it is released to the customer for use. Some key essential steps are always there that need to be followed by the Testers during Software Testing to streamline the process. The most important checkpoints for testers during software testing, in my opinion, would be:

(1)- Complete document of customer and business requirements specifying all the requirements for the development of the product.

(2)- Latest completed build and URL of the application to hit for Testing.

(3)- Software requirements for installing the application on PCs for testing or for database connectivity.

(4)-Training/Demo of the project by development team to Testing Team so as to understand the flow/functionality of the software.

(5)- Scope of testing should be made clear by the development team/Head.

(6)- If the build comes for retesting, then it should be accompanied by the revised document which includes the updated changes incorporated in the software.

(7)- Clarity regarding which member of development team should be contacted in case of any clarification required during the testing phase regarding the functionality of the module or if testers encounter a showstopper in the Software.

(8)- After release of the bugs list to development team, how much time they will require for fixing the bugs.
