Add multi-requirement selection for delete/undelete/remove/replace operations Hot

by Joshua Trosclair on March 03, 2017

Let's face it, the .csv import tool is scary for a new RM user and can mess things up if the user doesn't know what he/she is doing.
Sure, the .csv import tool is great and I wish the Dimensions CM tool had something similar, but most of my users would find it more intuitive if multi-requirement selections could happen so that they can save time on making multi-requirement changes.

    I know... the "replace" multi-select sounds weird, right?
    Scenario:
    A requirements manager has a query for a set of requirements which are now all obsolete.
    He needs to update each requirement in his query to have the "obsolete" attribute changed from false to true.
    Doing a .csv for that is a pain for an end user.
    By the way, if RM had a "changeset" idea like Dimensions CM has, it would be easy to rollback mass changes of this sort if the user has a "whoops" moment.

    The latest 12.4.1 RM version has a split view that permits multi-selection of requirements for linking.
    That is a plus and a step in the right direction, but when it comes to delete/undelete/remove oprations, users have to do .csv operations.

    Thank you for considering this enhancement.
    I probably should create a separate "changeset" enhancement request, but I won't get my feelings hurt if someone beats me to it; in fact, I'd be happy to see it.

    Update:
    1.)Sometime after making this post, I realized that the editable grid view allows you to do multi-requirement replace operations.
    2.)As of RM 12.4.1, ability to select multiple requirements at a time for deletion is not possible; .csv imports have to be utilized.
