AST Bug Advocacy course teaches us that we must write bug report well, clear and dispassionate. We must:

For this bug report, (here is issue description) we will use following fields:
Summary: Missing send message icon

Report type: regression functional issue

Given that I am in All Contacts

When I touch blue + in upper right corner
And I touch add phone option
And I enter my mobile phone number: +385 92 1762 984
And I touch Done in upper right corner

Then number label is home by default
And there is no message icon
Can you reproduce the bug: yes, in iOS 7.1.2 and in iOS 7.0.3 simulator

Testers feedback

I presented Externalize part of RIMGEA at Zagreb Software Testing Club meetup #15 First impression was that tester would need to spend a lot of time just for one bug report.
I explained that tester does not have to note whole RIMGEA process, it only needs to produce final report. Other parts could be written in testers mind. Especially when tester masters the RIMGEA process. But RIMGEA notes could be very helpful learning tool for junior testers and that time could be counted as part of mentoring process.

Now is time to practice and use RIMGEA in your daily work. Please provide your progress as comments to this post.
