Add capability to edit test steps during a test run

We have a team that could potentially run hundreds of tests at a time. Many times during these test runs they'll need to make test step adjustments on the fly. In other tools, they were able to edit the test steps while running the test but we can't seem to do that in Octane.

We would like to request the functionality be added so users can edit test steps in a test case during a test run, without leaving or ending the test run.

This has been brought up a few other times on threads and definitely something that is lacking with Octane.

Agreed this would be very beneficial

If the test is changed during the run, this should at least be shown in the run summary in some way.

@yael are there any updates on when this will be slotted into a future release? There are 8 votes so this would be beneficial for many

I am checking back on this.

The interface would look like this: When running a Suite Run there will be an Edit button. When you click Save there will be a message that asks if you would like to propagate the edits to the entire Test Suite.

Would the edits just be in one particular test suite, or would those edits be for the test itself regardless of test suite?

That is a great question, I am open to people's suggestions. There could be a list with two options and the user can select if they just want it to apply to this Test Suite, or all Test Suites that include this Manual Test.
