TestTrack Folder Task Board Report - Now With Configurable Columns

Helix ALM
The TestTrack 2010.1 release included a new Folder Task Board, which displays the status of TestTrack items in a Task Board format. The columns were hard-coded and determined based on time tracking. The How Items Are Grouped in TestTrack Release Status post explains this in detail. The upcoming 2011.1 release includes a new Folder Task Board Report With Configurable Columns report, which allows you to define your own columns and map them to states in the workflow.

Under the Options tab you can define the columns, assign them a color, and map the workflow events. Note that you are able to map states from different items under the same column.

For example, the following report includes development, test, and requirements artifacts.
