Is TestDirector Relational?
We are in the first steps in making a transition from an Access database to TestDirector with the intention of making all our testing scenarios and results accessible to multiple company sites across the country. We are all still on the beginning level of experience with this product.
While this is all well and good, we are concerned with certain limitations within TestDirector. Access gave us relational functionality to tie in individual test conditions to make a complete testing scenario that was then sometimes split into multiple test cycles and/or multiple analysts. Each scenario was then assigned to a specific policy number for a specific project.
Later, the same scenario or conditions within the scenario could be reused but with a different policy number and project name relationship. All of this variable information would then be available through a set of predefined queries.
I am wondering if TestDirector capable of this type sustaining these types of relationships between its datasets or is more of a test repository. I would appreciate the assistance of the advanced users as I try to determine the potential functionality loss.

Well, I'm certain the TD functionality will not be a perfect replacement I'm sure you will find it satisfies most of your needs out of the box. Customizations will get you closer.
I think you should read the guides and install the demo and play around with it. If you have the budget you could also get a TD consultant for a couple of days to help you with the transition.
