Tests list > Pause Test

The Pause Test sheet slides out from the Monitor window when you choose the File > Pause Test... menu item, or the Pause Test toolbar button. Choose the desired units from the pop-up menu, and type the corresponding value in the field. The options in the pop-up menu are Minutes, Hours, Days, Weeks, Months, and Indefinitely. Simon remembers any interval you previously used, to make it easy to pause for the same duration again.

If you confirm the pause, the indicated tests will not be checked again until at least the requested interval has elapsed. The time remaining of the pause will be displayed in the tests list. When the pause time has elapsed, the tests will be automatically resumed. However, if Indefinitely is chosen, the tests will remain paused until you manually resume them.

This operation is available when zero or more tests are selected. The confirmation text will change depending on whether there is zero, one, or more tests selected. When no tests are selected, the operation applies to all tests.

When tests are paused, you can choose the Resume Test option to un-pause them. There is no confirmation sheet when resuming.

Note: Simon can also pause a test for you on specified days and times, via the Auto Pause feature.
