Jackie, here are two workarounds that get you close(er) until Gurock gets around to this request.
Option 1: Import XML into Excel
- Export as XML
- Use Developer tools to import XML
This will get the steps on their own line although it’s still busy since it repeats all the other cell data for each test step.
If it were me, I’d write a quick tool to process the exported XML into a format/viewer that works for my users. Another option is to just hand over the XML. They can open the XML in any browser to get a structured and collapsible view. Might be too busy for some users though.
More on XML->EXCEL approach here:
Option 2: Provide xslt (stylesheet) to format the xml into a styled web document. This is the recommended approach.
Save the following xslt code to a file named MyTestStyle.xslt to your preferred document folder. Export your testsuite as XML and place in the same folder. Edit the xml and place this line at top, save and close.
<?xml-stylesheet type='text/xsl' href='MyTestStyle.xslt'?>
Now, open the xml file in a browser and it should display as a web page. From here you have some options.
- Provide both these files to your users and instruct them to open the xml as you did.
- Save the web page as a single .htm file and post/send your users just htm file.
- The Edge browser (IE), has an option to import the .htm into Excel (assuming you have it) which would get you back into Excel with each step on it’s own line but the result is similar to the 1st option.
Lastly, I only provided enough style to get the example done. This stylesheet can be enhanced with nicer formatting and more data. Up to you.
[XSLT FILE - COPY EVERYTHING BELOW HERE INTO THE .xslt file]
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<td><xsl:value-of select="index"/>. <xsl:value-of select="content"/></td>
