Creating a New Project

To create a new project in AppPerfect products, follow these steps:

  1. Start the desired AppPerfect Product.
  2. Once the product starts. Click File -> New...

AppPerfect uses a project dialog for AppPerfect Web Test, AppPerfect Load Test and AppPerfect App Test products. Once a project is defined, you need to specify certain values related to the specific product (Web Test, Load Test and App Test) for which you are creating the project. Listed below are the various properties which can be set using new project dialog.


The 'Project' panel requests information regarding your project's name and its location on your system. By Default, all the projects are stored in the 'workspace' folder of the AppPerfect installation directory.

NOTE: If you provide a project name that already exists, AppPerfect will over-write the contents of the existing project's folder.

Notification Settings

AppPerfect can send you customized notifications of your test results. This feature is very useful in cases where you want to schedule AppPerfect to run tests and do not want to wait for the results. For example, you can receive the results in your mailbox with (optional) HTML reports attached. You can choose to be notified on test completion or only if the test fails.

The following settings are required for the Notifications feature:

1. Send Notification on: Project completion or Project failure, as is your requirement.

2. Notification Message: Click the button to create your own customized notification message using the variables relevant to your AppPerfect product.

3. Email / Custom Notification Settings: Provide the required email or custom notification settings where you want application to send notification.

NOTE: If you opt for Notifications you must configure notification settings in AppPerfect Test Manager application and you must configure Test Manager information in tools > Options > Server Connections dialog in AppPerfect product, otherwise, the Notifications feature will not work.
