  1. Module Groups Including Other Module Groups

    Today Module Groups can contain recordings. I am constantly wishing I could create a module group which included other module groups. This would go a long way toward both DRYing up code, reducing time spent during design, and improving reusability.

  2. Allow selection of multiple modules in Projects view

    Sometimes I need to move or delete multiple modules quickly. Moving or Deletion of modules only possible from Projects view.

    Unfortunately it is not possible to select multiple modules e.g. using Ctrl or Shift key in Projects view to do that.
    Please implement multiple selection in Projects view

  3. Merge Ranorex reports together into one report.

    It would be nice to be able to merge 2 or more reports together into one. For example if you run two individual Test Suits on seperate virtual machines and then export the report into a folder then it would merge those together to form a single report.

  4. Use wildcards in processes whitelist

    If we automate a process with dynamic executable name, it would be nice to usewildcards for whitelist entries.

    Example: setup file with buildnumber
    setup_2.3_buildXY.exe
    setup_2.3_buildZA.exe
    setup_2.4_buildAB.exe

    --> setup_*

  5. Ranorex Script should run in headless mode

    As Ranorex script requires a active desktop. It is always not possible to open the desktop in case script is integrated with the build. Ranorex script must be executed in headless mode similar to selenium.

  6. I would like to use Breakpoints from my Solution page on Test cases and Recording modules

    It would save time to be able to stop the test where I want, look at the state of the application the continue the test if the application is working as expected. This would also be useful for training so I could stop the test where I want explain what the test has just done then continue to the next break point.

  7. Add search boxes for parameters and variable binding

    Foremost in big projects there are many parameters and variable bindings. Sometimes it is really messy to find the correct one. In addition, the parameters can not be sorted by name, which makes the search even more difficult. Maybe filters for unbound and bound might be cool too.

  8. Action Mouse Move+Click

    When testing a HTML form, before performing a click in an item it is recommended to perform a move operation to avoid clicking in mistaken positions of the screen, This two operations (move and click) will resolve the item path independtly increasing not only the execution time but also the length of the test. It would be nice to have an integrated move+click action.

  9. Allow users to create TestCases(or SmartFolders) with the same name.

    In different hierarchies of a test suite, allow users to create TestCases(or SmartFolders) with the same name.

  10. Make Offline Help available again

    Since version 7.1.0 there is no offline help available any longer. Since we are using Ranorex on PCs without connection to the internet, no help in Ranorex is available any longer.

    It would be good, if offline help would be re-introduced in Ranorex. version 7.1.0

  11. Ranorex on Mac

    It would be a really great idea to have Ranorex being able to test Mac Desktop app. .NET Core has been released for Linux and Mac, so it would be something interesting to look in order to make this possible

  12. Toggle Button for Turbo Mode

    Simple on/off button for Turbo Mode applicable in all recording modules would be fine. I believe that most of us would appreciate this enhancement. Thank you

  13. Image Compare

    The Implementation off Image comare is actually not so convined for Web testing. An Image compare will fail with Other Browsers. we need differet images for differet Browsers. We have a lot of different Images for other customers. It is not easy to handle lot off Images. Also would be nice to have different algorithm to comapare Images.

  14. Support enum as parameter-type in UserCodeMethods

    Currently basic types as parameters are supported for UserCodeMethods like string, double etc.
    It would be very helpful, if enums would also be supported:

    [UserCodeMethod]
    public static void MyUserMethod(RepoItemInfo repItem, MyEnum action)
    {

    }

    public enum MyEnum {
    A,B,C
    }

    In the recording view the user should see a dropdown with the all the possible enum-values listed.

    Current workaround is using a string as parameter without providing the user any help what are possible values. Also I have to validate the user-input before usage.

  16. Using variables as parts of repository paths

    Currently it is already possible to use variables inside repository-item-paths as placeholders for attribute values (see $test1). This could be improved by allowing variables as parts of the path as in the attached screenshot (see $test2). If this is possible, controls used often in an application could share repository items and just replacing a part of the path with a specific path.
    At the time we accomplish this effect by a code module that does the replacement for us, but this is then no longer necessary.

  17. Create several test reports in one execution of test suite

    It would be useful if we could run a whole test suite but create several test report files, selecting which test cases/smart folders will be included in every report file.
    It is usefull because we can run all the test suite once and create a report for every test set regarding a specific functionality or specific type of test...

  18. Optional recording variable (with default value)

    It would be useful to have a way to disable the warning when a variable is not meant to always be bound.
    When the 'optional' flag is set, change the warning to tell the user to set a default value.
    When 'optional' and default value are set, the warning disappears.

  19. Progressive Report Preview for Remote Test Execution

    When my tests are running on some Agents it would be great to see the progress / status of the execution. E.g. which tests did pass already, what went wrong so far, ....

  20. Ranorex Mobile Test Cloud - Real device support

    It would be great, if ranorex support mobile test cloud environments, so that we no need to buy the devices and we can use mobile devices (real device) on cloud environment and pay as we use.
