Auto-refresh test run status, marking test case as "Needs Update"


#1

There are two features I’d like to know if they exist, and if they don’t, would like to request.

First, auto-refresh or real-time updates of test run status. I’d like to be able to navigate to a test run that’s in progress and just park a browser tab there, knowing that anytime I look at the page I’ll know the status of testing.

I’m pretty sure this doesn’t exist but please correct me if I’m wrong.

Second, as I inherited a suite of old test cases we’re constantly coming across tests that needs to be updated or rewritten entirely. It would be great if there was a way for a tester to mark/flag a test as needing to be updated, being able to leave some notes as to what changes are necessary, and for a person or group to be notified in some way that this work needs to be done.

Again, I’m certain this doesn’t exist as I’m imagining it, but maybe there’s a way to do it?

Thanks in advance.
