Not Able to Add Multiple Steps


Our QA usually has two testing steps, one for the QA environments and one for prod. Using Test Case’s custom fields we tried to add a new field for Prod Test Steps, but it returns an error saying you can only have one step field.

In this case, I can recommend using test plans and configurations and this would make it very easy to compare the production and QA environments and spot differences between both systems:

For example, the following report can be found to compare test runs (Results > Comparison for Cases):
