Squash TM - Experiences Needed
I have just moved to a new company and they are in dire need of a decent test management tool. We are currently working from excel spreadsheets which is painful.
I am a log time user of ALM/QC, but we do not have the budget for such a beast. I have been looking into the Open Source option and came across Squash TM. I have tried the demo and it looks as if they have modelled the whole thing on QC.
The questions I have are:
- Ease of install, including linking to a postgres DB. Windows or Linux?
- Can test cases be uploaded easily from an excel spreadsheet. I read so but in the demo project I think this must be disabled.
- Any major problems that you have encountered using it.
Thanks in advance for the replies,
In my present company, we were looking for a opensource tool that can solve our purpose of TC management as well as execution allocation. We did evaluation of various tools like TestLink, SquashTM, JIRA GreenHopper plugin etc. But we narrowed down to Squash TM.
To answer your questions
1. It is easy to install on Windows & Linux

3. No major blockers from my perspective. The major problem that we faced not sure if applicable to you, but we have JIRA custom fields that are compulsory and we want to create defect directly while execution in Squash. This will require some extra efforts.
