    Hi.
    Is that possible to run the tests in the list randomly everytime without modify the order manually?
    Thanks in advance

    Hello Lin,

    The closest we currently offer is Dynamic Test Lists. Can you share what automation challenge you're trying to solve with this approach?

    Hei.
    Sure. I have created several tests and added it in to a Test List. Every time I run the list, i want the tests inside can be ran in a different order. Like first run, test 1,test2,test3,test4. second run,test2,test4,test1,test3. Order can be changed automaticlly.

    Hello Lin,

    I understand what you're trying to accomplish (random test order within test list), but I'm more interested in why you'd like to do it. What automation problem do you currently have that will be solved by randomizing the test order within a list?

    If tests are dependent on one another, then the order is typically fixed and the RecycleBrowser test list setting is set to True. If tests are independent, then their order typically isn't important and it's unclear to us the advantage gained by randomizing their order.
