Under Projects view users are able to create, remove and manage their projects.  By clicking ‘+’ button new projects can be created after the type of project is selected. The types of projects are: Android, iOS UI Automation, Android UIAutomator, Calabash Android, and Calabash iOS.
NOTE! Appium projects are generated on the fly and automatically detected by Testdroid Cloud. These projects cannot be created manually in this view.

On the right hand side, users can create project specific test runs, reports or share projects with other valid Testdroid Cloud user accounts.
In test run section users can edit, insert tags or delete test runs. The view also shows the percentage of successful test runs, success of tests, the status of test run (how many devices have been finalized the test run), date and time information, as well as application specific information (e.g. the name of test and application file).

Create a new test run (multi-page widget) 

Step #1: Upload your application
Click Choose File button to locate APK or IPA file from your local harddisk. For further configuration, click Next (either on bottom or top of the view). 

Step #2: Select the test type
Testdroid Cloud provides a feature called App Crawler that automatically crawls through the app and tests its functionality by exercising UI components (e.g. button clicks, opening menus, changing views). App Crawler automatically handles the screenshot taking, log writing and generally it keeps the record of application’s status.
When user selects ‘File’ instead of App Crawler the view asks user to locate test script files for the app.
When proper test method has been selected, click Next (either on bottom or arrow on top).

Step #3: Select devices for the test run
The view shows all created device groups. User can also create a new device group by clicking the left-top icon with a ‘+’ button. Device groups are either for Android or iOS. By default, Free device group is selected.
NOTE! Device groups can include only Android or iOS devices.

Step #4: Advanced options for the test run
User can specify test run name, tags, scheduling of the test run (if tests is desired to be executed simultaneously on all devices, one device at a time or on a first available device for test run).
User can select the language for devices. There is great variety of different languages available and all devices will be configured with selected language for the test run.
User can input login credentials for the application. If app requires user authentication at the beginning, login and password information can be included here.
User can specify how test cases are used – e.g. from specific package or class and then definitely the name in given field.
User can also specify hooks for finished tests by giving an URL. If this option is used, the POST call will be performed when test run is finished.

Start the test run by clicking Start button. User will now redirected to Test Run view.
