Why is it only possible to select one milestone in drop down?


Hey guys!

Just thought of one thing, there’s a milestone drop down list in test cases view and can also be added as a custom field. But why is it only possible to select one milestone? Wouldn’t it be better to be able to select all milestones where the test case applies? Maybe there’s something I’m not thinking about?

Best regards,



The current milestone field for test cases was added so that you can mark the minimum milestone this test case applies to. The plan is to allow you to filter test cases to be included in a run by this and other attributes. The idea was also to add a field that allows testers to specify the maximum milestone a test applies to, but I like the idea of doing this in a more integrated approach (e.g. with a single custom control instead of two separate fields) and we will definitely consider this.
