Today we've updated our TestLab, where you can upload your Selenium IDE tests and schedule test-runs, with 2 new features.

The first new feature is an optional custom error message. Before, TestingBot sent the error message received from Selenium to your e-mail or phone (SMS text message). Now, you can specify a custom error message for your alerts and use variables like %test_name% or %browser%, which will then be sent to your e-mail or phone.

The second new feature is an optional recover notification. When enabling this, you'll get notified through e-mail or SMS that a previous failed test is now successful.

Should you have more ideas on how we can improve our TestLab, please let us know.
