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


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.



is there any news about the question above ?

Thank you!
