Is it possible to add 'Due Date' when assigning testcase/testrun to the team members


#1

Hi,
While assigning test_cases/test_run to the team members, I want to add ‘Due Date’ also to it. So, that when a team member login and view his ‘Todo’ list, he can work on those test cases that are due to complete on that day or coming days.
Is it possible to do in testrail?

Hello mbthomson,

That you for posting! It is not currently possible to assign a due date at the test or test run level. We are happy to review adding support for this in a future update. In the meantime, you can schedule due dates for milestones which you can then link your test runs to. Many of our customers already use milestones in this manner.

You may also be able to use a custom case field to manage this due date. That said, the custom field’s value would be managed in the parent test case. Any change made to this date field in the parent test case would automatically be applied to all of the associated tests in any open / active test runs and test plans. You can find more information about creating custom fields on our website here:

I hope this helps!

John
