QaTraq video Adding a Product to Test
Clip #1 in the QaTraq Software Testing Tool Tour Series
Before you can use QaTraq Software Testing Tool to help you manage and track your testing you need to define the product that you are planning to test. When we refer to a product in QaTraq we are referring to any application or system that is going to be the focus of our testing efforts. So in this clip we look: creating a new product, adding product components, adding product versions and adding product requirements.

QaTraq video Working with Test Scripts
Clip #5 in the QaTraq Software Testing Tool Tour Series
Within QaTraq Software Testing Tool we define a test script as a document that describes in detail how a series of tests are to be conducted. A test script therefore contains one or more test cases, where each test case will have an associated test result. So in building up a test script execution strategy we will need to work with test scripts, creating new ones, copying existing test scripts and modifying existing test scripts. So in this clip we look at: defining the products, developing the test scripts and copying/deleting/modifying test scripts.
