Link to defect from outside QC?
Is it possible to link to a specific defect from outside QC?
E.g. If I have a word document listing outstanding defects, can this word document contain hyperlinks to the defect in QC?
I realise the person clicking the link will need to log into QC, but it would be good if QC opened at the specified defect, i.e.
- word document contains link to defect
- user clicks on this link
- QC login page is displayed
- user logs in
- QC opens automatically in the Defects page, with the specific defect currently selected
If possible, if the user has QC opened when clicking the word document link, the login steps should be omitted.
Apologies if this has been answered elsewhere, but I had a look and couldn't find anything.
Thanks in advance for taking time to read this, your help would be much appreciated.
Re: Link to defect from outside QC?
I have just found out how to do this.
And it's fairly obvious too (sorry for wasting your time)...
Right-clicking on an issue on the Defects page displays several options, one of which is "Copy URL".
Pasting into a Word document is in a very useful format... it doesn't paste the URL, instead it pastes the defect number (in hyoperlink format, i.e. underlined/clickable), along with the title of the defect.
