Basic Testing Checklist Developers & Testers

This post will help you mark all the basic testing checks so that you don’t miss basic bugs and thus save some scolding from your boss. Please note that this is a basic testing checklist. Please add your suggestions in the comments and we will add them to the File. 

This checklist can be used by both developers for unit testing and also by the software testers to check whether the developer has done some basic mistakes. The Testing Cycle proceeds further with Integration Testing, System Testing, and Acceptance Testing.

Please note this is a basic testing checklist, I have added columns where the first one is of the Type of fields in the application, the second one of the checks you have to do and third in which you will mark whether the check failed or passed.

Here is the list of the various manual checks you can do on the application to find bugs.
