  1. WYSIWYG for Description Field and DocFactory

    The content of the Description Field in CaliberRM can bee edited as RTF. But the output by the DocFactory to the generated Word-Document does not look allways good. Tables are not the same size, embedded objects are to big. The font depends on how an how edited it the last time. The font and size depends on the personal option settings of the IExplorer.

      • Allow Caliber Review to open ALM links

        If you only have access to Caliber Review and do not have the Caliber Author component installed, you are not able to open ALM links.

        Therefore I am asking for Caliber Review to be able to handle ALM links

        • Set default font for requirement descriptions and text.

          Would love the ability to set a default font for all requirements in Caliber. Right now, if I cut and paste from Word to Caliber, the font from MS Word is kept. it's annoying when looking between requirements to see many different fonts and font sizes.

          • Improve Table functionality with the description field.

            The current limitation of the table functionality in the description field, prevents us from utilising this feature fully including features such as resizing, colour shading, alignment and shading.

            As this is a HTML table, I believe a good example would be something similar to what Google use for Documents in Google Drive

            • Ability to output user defined attributes of traced requirements in DocFactory

              Currently the DocFactory syntax supports the output of builtin requirement attributes of traced requirements when using the $begin_traces command.

              I would like to be able to output user defined attributes of traced requirements inside a $begin_traces command.

                • Enable the filtering of Traces using DocFactory syntax

                  The ability to break out traces based on a pre-defined attribute. For example, let's say I have a user defined attribute set up that captures the type of requirement - use case, business requirement, business rule, functional, non-functional.

                  Within my project, I have a use case that traces from a Business requirement, and traces to business rules, functional requirements and non- functional requirements. Currently, when I produce a doc factory export using my SRS template, I can only filter on the trace type i.e. Trace From or Trace To. What I would like to be able to do is for…

                    • Table height problems: TheTables do not dynamically resize itself in Caliber

                      The tables copied into the requirement description field do not dynamically resize themselves. If a standard 3 row by 3 column tables is copied into a requirement description with text in each cell then if any extra text is added to any cell so that it is longer than the ROW length the table is not dynamically resized. The bottom row is however resized. Can this be developed to ensure the tables copied dynamically resize themselves.

                          Editing of Caliber via web will be available in Atlas 1.0 which will be available on 1/7/2014. Existing caliber customers can use this in parallel with their existing Caliber installation. More information will be provided as we get closer to the launch date.

                          Create a module that you can push a baseline (or set of requirements) to approvers to review requirements. A formalized review where you can track who, when and what requirements and Visualize artifacts were reviewed. Need abiliy to set a deadline date for review, allow for comments. View the total number of requirements for review and the approval states. View the approvers and the approval states for their requirements.

                            • Extend spell checker to cover requirement name and textual user defined attributes.

                              It would be very useful if the spell checker could spell check requirement names and text user defined attributes in addition to descriptions.

                              When I produce requirement specifications using the document factory I have perfectly spelt requirements, but Word immediately highlights all my errors (mostly typos) in the requirement name and in textual UDF fields.

                              I would be useful if these could be highlighted at the point of entry.

                              • Enforce CaliberRM setting so that users have to enter a comment

                                In CaliberRM end users can set many preferences such as whether or not to hide tabs and whether or not to request a comment on saving a requirements.

                                Is there a way to enforce one or more of these settings so that caliberRM users have to enter a comment?
                                Or so that preferences can be disabled.

                                    I would like to have a approval workflow for baselines, in a way that only approved baselines would be shown in Caliber Review and those pending approval whould display only to there´s signatories. In addition, rejected baselines would not be shown in Caliber Review. and rejected baselines would have a difrerent icon in Caliber Author. And Caliber Review would always show newest baseline when openning a project.

                                        Currently, you have the ability to choose a baseline which will show specific versions that are associated with the baseline, but not at the individual requirement level.

                                        This capability is available in Atlas 1.0 on 1/7/2014. It will work in tandem with your current Caliber projects and is available to existing Caliber users.

                                        Web Client – As a system owner, I want the full features/functionality of Caliber RM to be available as a web client and keep me out of the business of client install support and version management.

                                        • Functionality for branching and merging

                                          Most business units have parallel development projects working on the same product family. Consequently, there is a urgent need for branching and merging, as they already use in software development environments. Branching enables them to make changes on the same requirement without disturbing the other development projects. They also need to generate documents for each branch and create baselines for each branch. At a specific moment in time, there is a need to merge the branches again, where they expect the tools to support them in the process of determining the exact changes and choosing which changes are merged back…
