In a previous blog post, I mentioned some of the reasons why the Planning and Testing views in MTM look very similar but behave differently. Today, in this post, I will continue talking about this.
As you can see when playing around with the product, activity pages contain toolbars, with buttons which invoke specific actions. There are certain actions that are needed for planning purposes, and others –very different for execution. Since we have limited space in these toolbars (and because planning actions are very different from execution actions), we decided to have two separate views.
Look at the toolbars in the Planning view:
We have the following actions:
Now compare these planning actions to those actions in toolbars that live in the Testing view:
As you can see, actions that can be taken on suites/test cases in each view are very different. Many of these actions will also affect how test cases appear in each view, and I will be talking about this in a later post.
