Testing Checklist

Ensuring your websites are top-notch is essential.

Our QA checklist guides you and your team through the  quality control process to ensure nothing is left to chance.

Based on years of agency experience with hundreds of client, our checklist is the #1 quality control resource for agencies and freelance creators alike.

That's a great pitch, but...

What does your checklist cover exactly?


Content is the most important part of your website. Let's make sure it's well formatted and easy to read.


Quality content is the key to success, but if visitors can't find that content, it's of no use at all.


Interactive elements are great when they work, but they're infuriating when broken or unintuitive.


Good design stuns and amazes.
Great design connects with people and helps them fill their needs.


Everyone should be able to use your site. Ensuring that this is really the case is simply a must.


Forms are a great way to gather information. But if users can't fill or submit them, they're next to useless.


People love to share links with one another. Let's make sure your site looks great when it's shared.


People browse the web on all types of devices: phones, tablets, laptops, TVs... is your site ready for that?

Browser support

Each web browser has its own quirks. Better make sure none of these quirks break your site!

On-site SEO

Search engines are always getting smarter, but the more you help them, the more they'll help you.

... and more!

The web is changing everyday. We stay on top of the news to make sure you're always up-to-date!

• Every page loads correctly and in a reasonable amount of time.
• The purpose of the website is immediately clear when opening the homepage.
• The website has a working favicon that matches the brand.
• The 404 (Not Found) error page matches your brand and contains link(s) to the website.

• The logo in the header links to the homepage.
• Every link in the navigation works as intended.
• Dropdown menus and mega menus work as intended.
• The menu button opens the navigation when it is clicked or tapped.
• The search feature provides appropriate results or suggestions. (if applicable)
• The search feature indicates clearly when no results are found. (if applicable)

If your website offers a search bar, make sure it works well.

Here are a few pointers that might help test your search bar:

• What types of content can appear in the search results? (pages, articles, events...)
• Is the body of my content searchable or only the title?
• Do special characters and capitalization affect the search results?
• Do spacing and punctuation affect the search results?

Followed by a collapsible section labeled "Here are some Koalati-curated resources to help", followed by links to relevant articles from the Nielsen Norman Group website.
That's quite a lot.

Can a developer really check and fix all of that?

Having dedicated QA resources is ideal, but with the right tools and guidance, any web developer or designer can test and improve a website.

Koalati's checklist guides you through every step of the process one by one, providing explanations, examples, tutorials and research-based user experience articles.

We make sure you not only understand how to fix the issues, but that you also understand why they are issues in the first place.

Need to let others know something?

Collaborate with real-time updates and comments!

As you work through the checklist with your team, you'll see everything your teammates are doing update in real-time on your screen. A bit like Google Docs, but for your QA checklist!

Plus, you can leave comments and reply to others on the different tasks within the checklist, and mark threads as resolved when they're dealt with.

No need to create issues and tickets in twelve different systems to get things done anymore: our quality control checklist provides everything you need to test your website in one easy-to-use platform!

Screenshot of a checklist task's details in Koalati, in which there is a comment section with the following exchange: 

Émile Perron says:
"The 404 page is a generic error message from the server.
Could we do something fun but simple, like this? [image]"

Julie Descartes replies:
"Absolutely! I just built a new error page with our brand's colors. It should look much better!"
Still not convinced?
