How to manage test case folders?

QMetry allows testers to organize and manage test cases in a Folder based hierarchy. Testers can group related test cases and organize them systematically during authoring or post-authoring.

It helps to carry out bulk operations like Move, Copy, Editing, Deleting, Executing all test cases under one folder, etc.

Adding a Test Case Folder

The tree/folder panel is expandable that facilitates stretching of the area if you want to view longer folder names. You can also hover over the folder to view its full name.


On the Test Case module toolbar, click on the New Folder button to add a new test case folder.

Enter the following fields to add a new folder:

  • Folder Name: Enter name of the folder.

Click Create. The new folder is reflected on the tree.

Note: The following permissions related to the Test Case module are set from User Role for individual roles.

Editing a Test Case Folder
