Can I remove the 'comment' field from the test results?


I’ve configured the ‘result fields’ to use various custom fields that we want, and am trying to set up a new configuration for the ‘exploratory testing’ template that’s available now.

But I don’t see a way to control the ‘comment’ field (description showing underneath: “Describe your test result.”). I’d like this to show up only when using one specific template. Is that a system field that comes with TestRail? If so, is it possible to assign it only to particular templates?



Thanks for your posting. The Comment field is always there and cannot be disabled/hidden currently. The reason for this is that this field is typically an important part of the workflow and also part of the three-pane view and the basis for exploratory testing:

I’m happy to suggest the best possible implementation if you could share a few more details on what you are trying to accomplish.
