Can we have blank fields as default values for system fields as "Type" and "Priority"


Can we have have blank values instead of default values for Type, Priority fields? Engineer can forget changing this value and each case will be updated as the values of default field which is not true.


Hi Kmehta,

Thanks for your posting. Type and Priority are required fields in TestRail and blank/empty values wouldn’t be possible. Can you look into using some defaults that make sense even if your engineers forget to change the default? For example, for Priority a good default value would be ‘Medium’.
