Google for Developers: Pros and Cons of Google's Sheets API

Chris, one of Inflectra's latest interns, has created a brand new way to get data into SpiraTeam: Google Sheets (feel free to check out the code on Github). Google Sheets is great product, letting you create spreadsheets from anywhere at anytime. While it's great for us as consumers to use, what's it like for a developer?

Rapise v5.1 - Scriptless Automated Testing

We're very excited about the next version of Rapise coming out later this month. It has many enhancements and improvements for testing the web, mobile and desktop applications which we'll be discussing, but the biggest new feature is the ability to create scriptless tests, using a familiar Excel-based grid framework for composing automated tests. Unlike some other tools (cough cough HP UFT) this is natively part of Rapise, not some add-on.

Preview of SpiraTest v5.2 - Revamped User Interface for Incidents

We're very excited about the next version of SpiraTest (also SpiraPlan and SpiraTeam) coming out on April 26th. It features a lot of enhancements which will be the subject of future blog posts. However one big area is the redesign of the Incidents pages (both the one that displays the list of incidents and the one that displays a single incident when you click on it). This article explains some of the reasons behind the change and an explanation of what you can expect in v5.2. For those not heavily using the incidents module, it is still worth reading because in v5.3 we will be similarly changing all of the testing pages.

Listening to our Customers: Updated Product Roadmaps

One of the most popular sessions in our recent user summits in London, Zürich and Mannheim were the discussions of the future Inflectra product roadmaps.

Based on their feedback we have now published the updated roadmaps for the products for 2017/2018. Learn what users in Europe had to say.
