Who Should Learn This: Event Organizers and Assistants
Purpose: For the Organizer to test the form using a Private Browser, ensuring that the test environment directly reflects how the real user experience will be.
How to: Push the form into Test and copy the Test URL, open a Private/Incognito browser window, and use the Test URL to enter test transactions.
In order to get the most out of the testing experience, it’s important that you ensure you are not logged into InviteRight anywhere during testing. Being logged into InviteRight gives Organizers “All Power”, and will allow you to bypass set limits, access payment options that are not available to guests, and see items (such as “Admin Only” fields) that will not be shown to the real registrant.
Private/Incognito Browsers: One way to ensure you are getting the full Testing experience and are not logged into InviteRight as an administrator is to open a Private or Incognito browser. Depending on which browser you are using, this may be called something different. Here is a breakdown of the most popular browsers, and how to access a Private Browser in each:
Google Chrome – called “Incognito Mode”
Mozilla Firefox – called “Private Browsing”
Internet Explorer/Microsoft Edge – called “InPrivate Browsing”
Safari – called “Private Browsing”
Opera – called “Private Window”
Once you have opened the Private Browser, you can enter the test URL into the address bar, and commence with testing.
Expert Tip: Here in RightLabs Support, we recommend having one browser that you use most often for logging in as an Administrator, and having a second browser available for testing only. This way, you can always ensure you are 100% logged out of InviteRight during your testing, as you will only ever log in as an Administrator on one browser, and will do your testing on another.
If you’re using the same browser and think you may still be logged in, try clearing your browser History and Cache before testing. Occasionally, an old session will still be logged in somewhere, causing the form to behave as if you’re still logged in. Clearing your History and Cache will log you out of any ongoing sessions.
