Release of siteSifter 2.10 (p24) (p25)

This week’s see mainly bugfixes, most of them related to the user interface. Some, specifically for the Analytics baseline, improve efficiency and reduce testing time.

Two new features, both related to reports, are in place. The HTML report type has been changed, making it more structured and easier to read and understand — or so we hope. It would be of great help to us if you could test, and report back. If the response is positive, we’ll also redo the Word–, OpenOffice and PDF report types.

The second change is the introduction of “archive” HTML– and Excel reports. This means siteSifter will create one report per checkpoint/test and store them in a ZIP archive which you can then download as usual, instead of one large report for all checkpoints.

“Archive” reports are aimed at those situations where you have a large amount of results, and wish to import them into for example MS Excel — which has a maximum line count of 65,000.

From the project details page, select “Advanced”, then “Report Options”. You can now create a new report based on old test data. If you do so using the HTML– or Excel report types, check the “Create one report per checkpoint … ” box to enable the “archive” feature.

If the feedback on this technique is positive, we will extend it to cover the CSV and XML types as well.
