I find it very useful near the end of a test cycle, to keep one page open with my test run, and another page open with my coverage report of all my test runs for my test cycle. I work my way down the list in the report and test cases which are still untested, retest etc. When I enter my result in my test run’s corresponding entry, I need to refresh my report to include the 1 or more test results I just added. Currently I need to click the “create similar” button, which brings you back to the creation page, scroll to the bottom and click the run button. It then brings you back to the reports list page where I need to delete the old one and click the new one again. Scheduling the report helps kick me out a new one every morning but it’s usefulness for tracking my progress real-time ends there.
Having to do this quite a lot - could I ask that a button get added to simply re-run the same report and have it refresh in that page directly? Maybe F5 could re-run the same report? I realize I could pre-filter my test run based on past results but we still re-test some passed results depending on risk areas for that run.
As well, on the report list page, it seems odd that clicking the link a second time doesn’t create a fresh run of the report - just the existing data. Much like other databases, if I wanted to get a snapshot against a specific time, I’d export the data from that query the day I ran it. Maybe the option to run fresh or grab the original pull would be useful.
