Provide comment text when hovering over test results in reports


I have seen other enhancement requests asking for the ability to see details of a test case when hovering over the link. I’d like to make a similar request along these lines. I create a report of my last 10 test runs which provides a nice roll-up in a Latest (Coverage) column. I love how test rail lays it out in the “Comparison & Coverage” section but it would be very handy if the UI could provide the test result comment text when hovering over the individual test results, especially over the entries in the Latest (Coverage) column for non-Passed entries.

If you guys could triage this in, I’d appreciate it.



Hi Liam,

Thanks for your posting and feedback. I’ve added this to our list of features to look into. You can already click on the result or test and then see the result details (e.g. comment) in a tab but I agree that seeing this directly in the report would be great to have as well. Thanks again for the suggestion!
