The keyword view is comprised of a table-like view, in which each step is a separate row in the table and each column represents various parts of the steps. You can modify the columns displayed to suit your requirements. You create and modify tests by selecting items and operations in the Keyword view and entering information as required. Each step is automatically documented as you complete it, enabling you to view a description of your test steps in understandable English.
