We would like the ability to plan manual runs via an upload / import excel file. Many of our project teams have many udfs at the manual run level which need to be entered for each planned run, making the planning feature in version 15.0.60 of Octane within the UI cumbersome. Examples of the manual run level udfs are: planned execution date, executing team, security role, business unit, module, etc. along with the standard manual run fields like run by, sprint, etc.
Planning a run in Octane and then copy and pasting all of these field details from excel into the plan run dialog box can take several minutes per run and requires many clicks/drill-downs & back, so for larger projects who have for example 1200 runs to plan per cycle (typically 4 cycles), this could take 60+ hours just to plan all of the manual runs in the tool prior to test execution. Since the bulk of our projects are larger, many times ERP projects, this is a standard example for many of our project teams. The ability to plan manual runs w/field level population (including UDFs) via an Excel upload would greatly reduce the time it takes to plan an entire testing cycle and make Octane extremely more user friendly when it comes to testing.
