The rich text editor allows for fast and convenient formatting and structuring of your instruction texts, making it easier to communicate complex information and to highlight the most important aspects for our testers.

The editor is currently available for the following text fields:

  • Feature descriptions (since May 2022)

    • Where can the feature be found?

    • Description (expected behavior and functions)

  • Test instructions for Exploratory and Test Case tests (since October 2022)

    • Goal of this test

    • Out of scope

    • Additional requirements

Example: Test instructions in a test case test

How to use the editor

You will see the editor whenever you edit or add a feature on the Feature & User Stories page or add a feature to a new test cycle. On small screens, the options can be scrolled horizontally.

The formatted text will be displayed wherever the feature texts are shown in our customer interface and for our testers and teamleaders.

Using the rich text editor is optional. It is still possible to provide and write plain text feature descriptions.

Features with previous markdown format

Customer features that included markdown for formatting until May 2022 have been converted to the rich text format.

Part of this step was to align all headlines to one size, exchange italic text with the colored highlight and substitute horizontal line with a text equivalent. (-------- )
