Folders

Folders provide a way to organize data so that you can easily locate your data. Folders allows to group items by a common attribute - functionality, features, environments, etc.

AIO Tests lets you create a Folder hierarchy (folders & sub-folders) for proper organization of your test. Folders are available for Cases, Sets as well as Cycles.

Managing Folders

A user can create a hierarchy for organizing test cases/sets/cycles using folders. Following actions are available for the folder structure - add new folders, rename existing folders, move folders for reorganizing and delete folders that are no longer required. Users can also create cycle from a Case and Set folder, and set from a Case folder.

Please note that by default the system comes with All Cases and Not Assigned folder. All Cases shows all test cases whether or not they belong to a folder and Not Assigned shows all test cases that are not inside a folder. These two folders cannot be renamed or deleted or moved.
