If you provisioned Neoload Web, you can now share your test settings with your teammates.
Reservations is a must-have feature for any tool. Now you can schedule your tests in Neoload Web by reserving the timeslot.

Neoload now offers predefined functions which you can use only from 7.1. Go to Edit > JS Libraries, to see the functions. You can add your own function and call it in your test.
