Test suites are listed alphabetically - can this be changed


#1

I have created a project and added some skeleton test suites that are named to match entries in a tree view that our users see in the software - I entered them in the order we see them in the tree eg:-

Overview
Configuration
Reports
Logging
(and 20 or so more entries)

But test rail lists them alphabetically so the tester still has to scroll up and down to find the entry they want.

Is there a way to keep the original order (other than prefixing each entry with a number) ?

Hi Dave,

Thanks for your posting! I would recommend modeling this with a single test suite/case repository and you can use sections and sub-sections to organize and group your cases instead. This supports a custom order and don’t need to be ordered alphabetically. Once you added your sections/sub-sections, you can freely change the order in the sidebar via drag & drop.

Cheers,
Tobias
