Yes. An overhaul would be nice. I would think that Katalon would have concerns for losing market share to tools that pay more attention to their user base.
Feel free to open a feature request and wait for feedback.
I am tired of doing such and being ignored (and I have a strong feeling I am not the only one from the comunity in this regard)
I’m actually a little dismayed there is no staff response to any of the suggestions made in this thread. To me, calling something a “platform” without these facilities is stretching the meaning of the term beyond its accepted usage.
EDIT: I moved this thread to Feature Requests. Let’s see.
If you submit a feature request or if you report an issue (bug). All of these are reviewed and prioritized by the product team for scoping into future releases. There’s a lot going on at Katalon, from new products and new features to yes, even bug fixes. Scoping these releases takes a quite crafty hand. While it might be comforting to share what is scoped in roadmap, the hesitation in sharing that information is simply sometimes things fall out of scope (for a number of reasons).
(That’s why you never see Apple fixes communicated out until the product is delivered)
That said. As I was reading the above threads I noticed the amazing job some of our community members are doing as it relates to sharing “how to links” and mentoring where they can. thank you all for caring and supporting each other. That’s what community is about.
Thank you very much for your patience. I have raised a ticket to our product team and will inform you if there is any update or respond from their end.
@mike.verinder Hi Mike,
Let me guess, you are either a new hire in Katalon company or an old member promoted to a certain management position.
My best guess will be Product Manager or Product Owner, altough I started to have some doubts that Katalon is using a certain Agile methodology … but this is just my opinion.
So you have started to take the pulse of the comunity by raising various topics here and there … to get a better understanding of the product and use-cases.
Which is not a bad thing.
As for your answers:
If you submit a feature request or if you report an issue (bug). All of these are reviewed and prioritized by the product team for scoping into future releases
- Yeah right, we heard that many times
There’s a lot going on at Katalon, from new products and new features to yes, even bug fixes.
- We are not stupid. We know there is a lot going on. We only doubt the focus is on the rights priorities, from our point of view
- You may like to either re-phrase that, or take some action.
Lack of visible feedback is the main concern for us, old members, and for new members too.
Which can be read also like “Katalon is overhelmed and do not have a clear path”.
AKA lack of proper management.
That said, welcome to the comunity!
Thanks for your feedback bionel.
A little about me. I’ve been leading Automation teams for a little over 20 years.
for the last 15 years, I’ve also have a small little Selenium User Group I created on Linkedin.
(we have around 190,000 members). The Katalon team knows I’ve always been a fan of Katalon and asked me to come into the Katalon family as the Chief Community Advocate.
Here’s a link to my Linkedin profile if you’d like to know more about me. Feel free to connect with me if you like
Have a great day !
I believe you’ve effectively made your point. It’s now time to let Katalon act. Continuing to berate the Katalon team accomplishes nothing.
Thanks for the intro Mike. A pleasure to make your acquaintance. It’s always good to know that there’s a user advocate on the tool vendor side.
bionel is just enough, but thx
I am sorry to say, but you will have a lot of bad stuff to deal with, with regards to Katalon actual image.
I wish you luck!
you have a lot of stuff to repair, so i already hear your scream.
