Ability to have configurations that are the combination of selections
Currently in Manual Test Planning, if you want to select configurations, you must have each configuration entry with all the info needed.
For instance, I want to test a certain feature in a certain OS with a certain language and version of IE.
In this case I must have a configuration that represents the exact combination, something like "Win7|English|IE9".
This forces me to enter in the configurations list all possible combinations I want to test.
It would be great if I can enter in the configurations list all the values separately, like all the Oss, all the Languages, all the versions of IE, etc. and then in the Manual Test planning area I can pick and choose the various elements of the configuration to create the one I need automatically.
This not only will allow fast use of configurations but also reduce errors because people needs to look in each configuration line to make sure all the combinations needed are there to then select it. Most of the times is faster and easier to just create a new one that could be a duplicate.
at this stage we will review for inclusion – as well as consideration for import of configurations from excel
