New Features

Pull Site-level Custom Fields

Insights provide ability to build custom reports based on custom fields which user created from qTest Manager.

Please note that Insights supports cross-projects reports, so Insights only pulls site-level custom fields from qTest Manager. Your custom fields should be set up at site level in order to be pulled.

See the Site Fields article in for a step by step guide on setting up site level fields for your qTest projects.

Quick Example

The first image demonstrates the field "SampleSiteLevelCustomField" has been created and added to the Test Run object of Project "AnhProject"

New Scheduler

This release introduces enhancements to the Insights Report Scheduler which replaces the main one is that it currently uses Greenwich Mean Time and not local time.   To address this, we have implemented a new report scheduler to make sharing reports more reliable.
 
"Migration" steps 
 
The user will need to choose to move from old to new. In Saved Reports the user will see a prompt message to migrate.  Users will not have to do this right away and can continue to use the old scheduler.  However, once they click to migrate then all the old schedules will be migrated automatically, after which they will only use the new scheduler.

Some notes of the new scheduler
  • All new accounts will only use the new scheduler 
  • The new scheduler has addressed the issue with timezone. The report now can be sent by user timezone which defined in qTest Manager, instead of always UTC
  • The user can customize the title of the scheduled report. It will be the email subject instead of always be "qTest Insights Report Delivery" as current. 
  • Validation on fields of the Schedule dialog to prevent issues with special characters
  • New Scheduler has all the same features as the old scheduler, except for one type which is certain numerical weekday of the month(s). For example: "the 1st Monday of November and December"

Color consistency across Insights and Manager 

This is an enhancement to pre-built charts about Defect status and Test Run Latest Result to ensure Colors are consistent across Insights and Manager.

Color of Defect status and Test Run Latest Result can be set up differently in different projects of a site in qTest Manager. Color set which is used in most projects of a site will be applied to Insights charts. 

If a status color is not defined from Manager, Insights will randomly select a color for it.

Shared Dashboard URL - outsider not to see data of all projects

The Shared dashboard URL now limits user who does not have qTest account to only see data projects of the admin who has generated the URL.

For example:

Given a site with 10 projects, an adminA assigned to 3 projects. When adminA generates the direct URL to shared dashboard:

  • Before: An outsider accesses the URL will see data of all 10 projects of the site
  • Now (after this release): An outsider accesses the URL will see data of 3 projects of adminA

Important:

Existing Shared Dashboard URL will no longer work, so you will see empty URL (as following screenshot). You need to generate a new URL.

Open a dashboard, from the slide-out Global Filter, click "Save with Filters" button. Your dashboard with its current filter will be saved into a version which we call a "Saved with Filters" dashboard

This feature is useful when you want to create many versions of the same dashboard for different projects, each with different filters applied.
