The automation rule test mode allows you to check how triggers and automation rules work in a demo deal, whether conditions are fulfilled or not. It also shows errors and records all actions in the log.
Go to the CRM section and click the Automation rules button.
Click the Test mode button in the upper right corner of the page.
Start the Test using demo deal. The automation rule test mode will create a demo deal in the first stage. In the entity form, you can add customer data: add products, bind a contact or a company, fill in any fields.
After that, the test mode window will be opened. On the left side, you will see the automation rules that are in the first stage. On the right side, there are two tabs:
- Fields - you can select the fields that you want to track changes in. Suppose you have created an automation rule that will change the deal name. Add the Name field.
- Log - all technical information about the automation rule actions is recorded in the log.
Click Start test.
