 Hi Brett, it really depends on your concept of exploratory testing, in general terms you can create a new category "Test Type" with value "Exploratory testing" and use your test cases with scripts, create execution records, etc as normal and of course you will also be able to create and manage reports for them. Hope this helps.

Hi Brett,

in order to run ET sessions, we run test cases which have no test script associated. When these test cases are run, you will get a rich text editor, which we use to log our testing notes of the exploratory session. Here, we actually use a template derived from the Bach&Bach paper about Session Based Test Management, which includes some metrics used in exploratory testing. Apart from that, test cases run in that way have also the standard RQM attributes (start and finish time) which you may also use to track the efforts.
