Changing the status of a test run


My team is evaluating a new test tool for us to use. So far TestRail is leading the pack in our trial runs; however I just encountered exactly the same limitation described in this thread. Even creating a new status of “In Progress” with the option “This status is a final status” unticked, the test resul with “In Progress” still can’t be edited.

Our problem with this is that we’ll have junior testers and we’ll be adopting this as a new test tool; therefore we are expecting experimentation and non-final test results that need to be edited. Having multiple test results in a test case in a test run is not what we want.

This may impact our final decision unless you have a suggestion how to circumvent this limitation?
