Block test case if precondition test case failed

Hi all

Quite often the preconditions for a given test case are simply another test case (or a few of them). I know I can reference one test case from within another to create a link, but is it possible to build functionality on top of that link? Specifically, is it possible to automatically set the depending test case to Blocked if the precondition test case/s have failed?

A couple of more complicated automations also come to mind, but I’ll leave them out of it for now.
