Overview of Test Plan Templates

Because a test plan is initially empty, you may want to insert a template, which is a hierarchical outline you can use as a guide when you create a new test plan.

The template contains placeholders for each GUI object in your application. Although you may not want to structure the test plan in a way which mirrors the hierarchy of your application’s GUI, this can be a good starting point if you are new to creating test plans.

In order to be able to insert a template, you must first record a test frame, which contains declarations for each of the GUI objects in your application.
