Results Workflow


#1

Is there anyway currently to do a workflow for specific results? For example, if we have a result “Question” where a tester might be confused on the steps or the goal of a test, we would like the only next state possible to be “Retest”.

Or another example might be that once a test has a “Failed” result, we would only like the “Passed” result to no longer be possible (we created a custom state “Pass w/ Retest” to track if a test had a failure but was fixed at a later date).

Is this possible? If not, is there plans to add something like that?

Hi Matt,

Thank you for your post. Currently TestRail does not include any workflow functionality like you are describing. That being said, we would be happy to look into this for a possible future release of TestRail as we can see how having some workflow logic within TestRail could be helpful.
