The export can be carried out from Requirement, Test Case, Test Suite, and Issue modules. The Export activities in QMetry runs in background as scheduled jobs. This saves users from sticking to the export activity until it is finished.
Use Case 1: Testers want to export large numbers of assets in bulk; however, during the export process they need to keep doing other important tasks and do not want to wait until the entire export process is completed. So they just initiate the export, which then keeps running as a background process. When it is done they download the file to work on it.
Use Case 2: Users want to export assets; however, once the export process is finished, they may want to download the export onto their local drive, or another workstation later in the day.
