Since we released the new GUI last month, we got some amazing feedback from our users.
We did an online survey, to explore more about the things you liked and those you though we could still improve and we found that although most of you really loved the changes we did, you still thought we had some things that could be improved.
Many users found it annoying that when they moved their mouse over the id in the grid, the popovers would open automatically; and we also had couple of bugs in this feature (which we fixed in one of those patches we’re doing all the time…) We even added a place in the personal settings to disable those popover from popping automatically.
But we really think this is a great feature and so we decided to solve the issues that were “annoying” some users. We started by changing the functionality so that when the mouse is over the id (hover), we now show the “info” button, enabling the users to click to see the preview but only with a mouse click; and another mouse click to close it.
In addition, we added some useful information to those previews. Tests -> now you can see the first 5 steps, TestSets -> now you can see the first 5 instances, Requirements – > the traceability.
We are sure this feature is now a lot better and it provides even more value than before.
Note: the disable popover flag in the personal settings settings works (turns off the popover) in the places where the feature would have been opened in the “old way” without pressing on the popover button (not in the grids). But we foresee that in the next couple of releases this flag will become irrelevant as we migrate all the popover functionality to work as it is doing in the grids today.
