I’ve been using TestRail for almost 5 years, and Test Plans are still painful to use for our team.
We are often adding new suites to our Test Plan and need to re-organize them. It’s tedious to click up & down arrows, when we have the ability to Drag cases and Sections within the Suite itself. It would help us a lot if we could click and drag Suites within the Edit Test Plan area too.
We have team members who have their own ways of doing things, and this is one thing that I’ve struggled with since the beginning. When we have new features or bugs that require a new test case, they only get Automatically added to the Plan if the Suite is set for “All cases”, OR require us to MANUALLY edit the test case if we select out cases that aren’t needing to be tested.
We have people who like a clean workspace and will pre-select the cases, which leads to MANY edits of the Test Plan, and also increases the events of multiple, simultaneous edits. But, if I try to leave it as “all cases” for convenience, a lot of times they will get confused with all the extra, unneeded tests, and well… this causes friction sometimes.
What I am suggesting, and this might even be a bug, I don’t know… is that when we “Select Cases” and select the Checkbox for a whole Section, that any cases that get added to that section also get added Automatically/Instantly to the Test Plan. This alone would make everyone here happy, and a lot more efficient, and also keep our analytical pie chart a bit more accurate.
