How to Opt into Kicksite Beta Testing
Beta refers to computer software (or features within that software) that is new or updated. The beta product or feature isn’t quite finished yet, but the developers need help from clients to test it out. A feature or program in beta testing is a work in progress, so it may not yet have full functionality, might have bugs, and may not include all of the features you asked for.
You may see alerts at the top of the Beta Test section to notify you of missing functionality or additions to come.
Having customers try out and test drive a beta product is a common practice and industry standard when it comes to testing software. For that reason, Kicksite encourages users to try out the beta features and submit feedback. Your feedback is crucial to help us release the best final product.
How to opt in and opt out of beta testing:
1. Navigate to the appropriate section in Kicksite that has beta testing available.
2. At the top of the screen, click Try the Beta.
- If beta testing is not yet live, the Try the Beta button will not be available.
- If beta testing is live, the page will refresh to incorporate the new view and/or features.
- After opting into the beta, you have the ability to leave and rejoin at any time.
3. Click Beta Feedback to record your thoughts about the beta and report any bugs found.
4. To opt out of (exit) beta testing, hover over the arrow to the left of Beta Feedback. The words Leave the Beta will appear. Click the link.
