Release Notes ReqSuite® 2.3

ReqSuite® 2.3 provides new features and functions as follows:

Dashboard

ReqSuite® now includes project-specific dashboards that graphically and/or tabularly display relevant metrics and progressions. In addition to an overview of the current state distribution, there are also diagrams for the state progression of requirements as well as for the visualization of relationships and attribute imprints. Relevant information about pending tasks, unstable requirements or recent changes complete the dashboard.

Enhancements in export documents

The MS Word® export has been extended with new tags for creating reports. In particular, counting and summing functions now allow you, for instance, to automatically calculate the effort involved in a release and compare it with estimated values. In addition, the Word export has been extended to include transitive output, so that it is no longer only possible to export direct relationships.

Dynamic value fields

The former attribute data type “Enumeration” has been extended to include dynamic values, which are created during project work, in addition to the values defined at configuration time.

Traceability analyses

The MS Excel® export has been extended to include not only content but also relationships that can be exported and re-imported. In addition, the tabular representation of requirements within ReqSuite® has been extended by new linking operations. Furthermore, traceability graphs have been implemented to see the dependencies of requirements at a glance.

Copy and merge

Requirements can now be copied or merged at the touch of a button within ReqSuite®. This supports in particular work with regard to the distribution of coarse granular requirements or duplicate avoidance.

Optional attributes

In ReqSuite® 2.2, you can now determine during configuration whether a certain requirement attribute must be filled in or only required as an option. This avoids superflous error messages in the completeness overview.

Usability Optimization

To further simplify the creation of new requirements, further usability improvements have been integrated into ReqSuite®.
