Requirements Status

Wednesday, March 16, 2011 4:43:38 PM

I'm seeing that there is no means to modify (Administrator) the Requirement Status selections (Requested, Evaluated, Rejected, Accepted, etc).  Are there plans for Administrator making changes to these selections?  Some of these selections do not pertain to our project and I'd like to modify existing selections or add new ones.  Is there a document that explains the flow using these Status selections?  I'm not seeing this in any current docs.

 Not at this time, unfortunately. Once workflows are introduced for both Requirements and Tasks, then you will be able to edit/modify the Requirement statuses. At the moment, the new workflows should be available in v3.2.

Ability to change available Requirement Status values (or at least expose only a subset of those predefined status') would be much appreciated by my users, as well... 

This very topic is what brought me to search the forums today... :)

I'd like to also say that I wish to edit statuses for my requirements.

For example - as I write tests and increase coverage of my requirements, I might have some requirements for which I am awaiting further information before I can begin to cover them. I'd like to set their statuses accordingly so when I drill-down in reporting I can know at a glance the status - and can filter them out accordingly.

You mentioned statuses would be editable upon introduction of workflow. We're not too keen on using workflow just yet, but still wish to edit statuses.

Thanks Inflectra,
