Introducing Calculated Fields in TestTrack

Helix ALM
TestTrack 2012 includes calculated fields, which allow you to configure custom fields to automatically calculate numeric, text, date/time, pop-up item, and time span values based on other field values. This new feature will have a big influence on how TestTrack can be used in different organizations. For example, you can calculate key metrics that are important to your projects, manage risk with custom risk scores, or consolidate values into a single field for simpler reporting. Over the new few weeks, we'll be sharing more videos and blog posts to show you specific calculated field examples. In the meantime, the following screenshots will give you a sneak peek into calculated fields. The first change you will notice is the new Calculated field format on the Setup Custom Fields dialog.
