Can I clone an existing milestone? Can I multiselect test suites to add to a milestone?



Create a test plan and add all your test suites into it. Then attach the test plan to the milestone.

Testrail will automatically start a test run for each test suite.



Thanks Tuomas, that’s what I’m looking for…I don’t know how I missed that before. From some more reading, I found that Rerun of a prior milestone will create a test plan with the same tests, which satisfies my cloning inquiry.
