Display the ID and Title in the Web browser's window title

Display the ID and Title in the Web browser's window title

Currently the only information displayed in the Web browser's window title for ALL windows with Defects (I suspect it's the same for all other IDs) is this: "Defects - Details".

When there are multiple windows / tabs opened to different Defect IDs it is not possible to determine the ID and title just by looking at the window's title, you have to actually switch to the window, bring it in the foreground and look at the contents.

Displaying the ID and the Title in the Web browser's window title would make the process of identifying the window with the ID that you are looking for much easier and faster.

Although i understand the issue, since the ID and title are long it is problematic to present them in the web browser title. Obviously the information will be presented in a tooltip.

A tooltip won't do it. The idea is to have the web browser window with a certain Octane ID more easy to identify and switch to when doing Alt+Tab. I regularly have at least 10 Octane windows opened at the same time and it's impossible to identify which is which when doing Alt+Tab.

Yes, I've also heard this from some developers......they just want the same option as Jira which is kind of old fashion compared to Octane UI.

Octane UI's and filters offer things a bit different as both overview and details is viewable in same UI.....so I actually wonder if its sooo necessary as you can just swith detail by clicking/selecting on another defect.

Maybe its a matter of them getting used to a more modern UI........working as they always have is not necessarily the best way:)

I don't really understand your comment. Are you proposing that we should use Octane in a single window? Ok, fine, then how can we have multiple issues opened at the same time in a single window? Like I said, I always have more than 10 active issues opened that I have to juggle. Not everyone has the luxury of working and focusing only at a single issue at a time.

Owner = Me ....and you have details in the side ....just select another defect

Unfortunately the preview cannot be modified

I have entered a Defect from the list above......use arrows in top-right corner to browse between defects

This workflow is not fast enough. When I have an issue opened and I want to switch to another one, I have to move the mouse and click to go back to the list with issues and then click again on the issue I want to switch to. This takes at least 30 seconds.

Compare with : Alt+Tab -> 1 second.

This was two different ways....

In the first screenshot you can click on another defect or just use keyboard arrows keys to switch....1 sec that also:)

Still slow. The keyboard navigation means I have to go sequentially through all the issues until I reach the one I want.

With Alt+Tab I go to any random issue I have opened in a window.

Alt+tab and Arrow keys up/down to choose whatever defect and tab again to choose column to update

Thank you Jesper for the great ideas. Adrian -  I personally dont think it will help much since you will only be able to see the ID (the title is usually too long).  But we will add this capability.

 

Thanks
