I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Search and Replace

    The ability to find a certain word/variable and replace all instances of it in one go. Should also have the ability to change some of the instances and not all (maybe you could skip to each instance similar to the find feature on Mac when in a window and you press Command + F and then use the arrows to skip to each instance)

      • Reviewing Test Cases Support

        Is there a way of making reviewing test cases easier?

        We can mark the tests ready for review, but would be easy if we have some GUI support to add the review comments to the steps or description.

        We don't have to rely on other tools to send review comments etc if it is supported in PT itself.

          Hi,

          Thank you for contacting us.

          Kindly note that you can add comments to tests within General tab and also you can use rich text formatting in steps in order to leave comments in different color.

          Will it work for you?

          Best regards,
          Christine

        • Suggestion on the "Call to test" feature

          The feature "Call To Test" brings some limitations to us. I want to see if your team can provide some solutions or improvement plan. Thanks you!

          1. No tracability between parent test cases and the called tests
          * Tester is difficult to trace the relationship between parent and the called test
          2. Cannot preview the called test steps in the test cases. The test case only show the title of the called tests
          * It's time consuming to open the new tab to view cases one by one
          * Suggestion: Preview by clicking a button
          3. Export test cases: Test…

          • Clone parent folder structure to child project if does not exist

            As a practitest user, I want to clone my test cases and attributes, specifically folder location.

            Acceptance Criteria:
            If the folder structure does not exist, create the folder directory (a unix example would be mkdir -p /root/parent/leaf where if only /root exists, the rest of the directory is created.
            Provide an option not to create and place in the folder structure

            • Task Board - Add Option To Continue run for Test set

              Currently you can select "Run" and start from scratch, but no way to continue from where you left off.

              • Ability to import the mapping between requirements and tests.

                Currently I can import the requirements (eg: 1,2,3) and the tests (eg: 101, 102,103) but I cannot import the links between the two and need to link them manually. I'd like to be able to import the mappings by creating a csv file.
                eg:
                Req, Test
                1, 101
                2, 102
                3, 103

                • Generating Test Cases From Jira into Requirements

                  The ability to go into the 'Requirements' section in PractiTest and have an option to 'Generate From Jira'. This would grab an attachment (Excel, CSV etc) from the Jira ticket, import it into PractiTest, generate a test case from it and link it to the requirement

                  • Create filters with OR statements that span item types

                    Currently it appears that filters can only be created using OR statements that meet the same item type which can reduce the ability to find what you're looking for when your test library gets to be particularly large.

                    For example I can create a filter that says:
                    (Name is this or that) and tag is this

                    And cannot make a filter with:
                    Name is this or tag is this

                    Or advancing even further to:
                    (Name is this and tag is this) or (name is that and tag is that)

                    It would be nice to be able to have this grouping…

                      • Add "Automation" checkbox to filters

                        It is not currently possible to filter test cases based on the "Automation" checkbox on the test case. Please add the ability to filter test cases by that element.

                            Would be nice to have a global search/replace string within a project for tests. Last minute code implementations could necessitate 100's of test case step updates to keep the tests current.

                              • Ability to copy a Custom View within a project at different levels for one module.

                                e.g. I have created one Custom View as 'View1' which has several child custom views such as 'View1.1','View1.2'. Now i create another custom view below 'View 1' as 'View 2'. Having the ability of simply copying 'View1.1' and 'View1.2' under 'View 2' would save lot of efforts for users. Especially if you see your project having number of similar tasks being created under it repeatedly.

                                • Width of Test Instance Name column in a Test Set is defined by the longest Name

                                  Currently, when you enter an existing test set, the Test Instance Name column is very narrow, cutting off most text of the test name. I constantly have to increase the Test Instance Name column EVERY time I reload the test set page. It's very annoying. At the very least, it would be nice if the column width would be remembered while I'm actively so I don't have to constantly increase it.

                                  • Add more data types/field formats to custom fields

                                    For custom field use, add more field formats such as:
                                    * time (hh:mm)
                                    * External Link (URL)
                                    * Multiple hierarchy levels in a linked list and not just one parent-child (also grandchildren etc)
                                    *link other data types to a parent list
                                    (eg: if you select A from parent list then a text field appears instead of only a child list)

                                    • Ability to get all filters for a project through the API

                                      We need the ability to get all filters for a project through the practitest test API. Currently we are trying to use the API to generate an internal report based on test sets in a test filter.

                                      We can filter the test sets by the filter-id but we have no way to prompt the user which filters are available to generate the report on.

                                      Maybe something like:
                                      https://api.practitest.com/api/v2/projects/YOUR_PROJECT_ID/filters.json

                                      • Include pictures / attachments in reports.

                                        It would be nice if there was a way to include photos and attachments that are included in test in the final report for reference. It can be odd at times to have a test that references a picture or attachment and it does not show up in the report.

                                          Hi,

                                          Thanks for your feature request.

                                          We are planning to add link attachments and names of image attachments to the new Reports.

                                          Will keep you updated.

                                          Best regards,
                                          Christine

                                        • clone or copy views in the tests library

                                          For example we have a view with a lot of child views and now We would like to create the same view but with a different parent filter. So we would like to clone the existing tree and modify it instead of creating it from scratch.
