In the fast-paced world of performance testing, every moment counts. LoadFocus is dedicated to ensuring that our users can hit the ground running, without getting bogged down by lengthy tutorials or complex instruction manuals. Enter contextual documentation: our solution for streamlining your learning curve and maximizing productivity.

What is Contextual Documentation?

Simply put, contextual documentation is information provided within the interface itself. Instead of navigating away to a separate help page, users can get real-time explanations and insights, right where and when they need them.

Inline Test Creation Guidance

Step-by-step, we’ve got you covered.

When creating a new test in LoadFocus, inline tooltips and hints appear to guide you. Whether it’s deciding on the number of users for a test, choosing a location, or setting up your test parameters, our inline guides offer instant clarity.

Example: Unsure about setting the ramp-up period? A small info icon beside the input field will provide a concise definition, helping you make an informed decision without leaving the page.

Metrics Definitions at Your Fingertips

Performance testing is rife with metrics. Response times, throughput, hits per second, and more – it can be overwhelming, especially for those new to the field.

With LoadFocus’s contextual documentation, a brief hover over any metric name instantly reveals its definition. So, you don’t just see numbers; you understand what they represent.

Quick Explanations for Faster Onboarding

The first experience matters. For users new to LoadFocus, the platform’s interface is designed with onboarding in mind. Every section, from dashboard analytics to test settings, comes with concise explanations.

For instance, if you’re setting up a load test and come across ‘concurrent users’, an inline description explains how this affects your test, helping you gauge the right number for your needs.

Feedback Loop

Because we believe in continuous improvement, LoadFocus offers users the chance to give feedback directly within the platform. If an explanation isn’t clear or you feel a crucial piece of information is missing, let us know! We’re committed to refining and enhancing our contextual documentation based on your insights.

Why Contextual Documentation Matters

Contextual documentation represents our dedication to making your journey smoother, more intuitive, and, most importantly, efficient. We’re excited for you to dive in and witness the LoadFocus difference. And remember, we’re always here to assist, learn from your feedback, and evolve.
