Acceptance Criteria in User Stories 

What's the best format to use when writing Acceptance Criteria in User stories that suit both Devs and testers?

I like the GHERKIN method. 

Given, When, Then 

Given (some pre-condition is true)

When (something happens)

Then (this is the expected outcome)

I like the classic user storie structure,

As a <User type>,
I want to <goal>,
So I can <benefit>

And as for acceptance criteria, I go with ordered lists, with sub items if needed, e.g.

  1. The system should allow users to enter their flight number.
    • Users should be able to enter the flight number via a text input field.
    • The system should validate the format of the flight number.
  2. The system should display the current status of the flight.
    • Status information should include departure time, gate number, and any delays.
  3. The status check should be available 24/7.
  4. The system should provide real-time updates.
    • Flight status should be updated at least every 10 minutes.

if you're interested in supercharging your user stories and acceptance criteria, check out - you can get done in 10 minutes what could normally take 10 days.
