Requirements history comparison, make it more user-friendly plz!

Monday, July 12, 2021


Let's imagine that BA-team is changing a requirement and dev-team estimates it. BAs could change a requirement through several "save" operations and as soon as all changes are done,  dev-team needs to reestimate. Dev-team is interested only in what was changed (they prefer not to read all the long description).

And it is a place, where Spira has a lack of UX (not user-friendly):

  • It is very complicated to see what was changed, see examples below, could you manage to see that I've added only "test 2" phrase?
  • Especially when the text has some mark-ups like tables or bullet list.
  • Especially when it is needed to compare not the closest versions but two different (in a screenshot below it takes a lot of effort to compare a version at the bottom from the version at the top).

We plan on adding features for viewing the changes in textual content in Spira using a similar system to that which we already have for viewing code differences:

(see the section marked - "Source Code Difference Viewing")

Good that we have the same view that it is needed.

Are there any news when it is going to be implemented?
