"Board" has a really neat feature: it can show an icon summarising the count of linked Test Cases. It ensures we can really good visibility of the test-plan and outcomes for User Stories as part of our sprints.
However, it will only activate if we quick-create a test from that mini-module :(
We nearly ALWAYS link our User Story's to pre-existing Test Cases. But the tests mini-module doesn't appear in this case (as mentioned above, we have to interact with the quick-create. So we dutifully create a "dummy" test item [which we subsequently delete].
It seems to be "by-design". But the teams are experiencing this as a Quirk (bug). Could it be made to behave as: When displaying the Items on the Board, if an Item has any items linked using "Tested By", auto-activate/show the Tests Mini Module on the Board?
@Ian_Donaldsonyeah you're right!: - When I open a Workitem from the board and create or link a sub-task; when I return to the Board the Workitem will display the sub-tasks mini-module (a count of the sub-tasks, nicely expandable when clicked).
- But if I do the same for Test Cases (linked using Tested By); when I return to the Board the Workitem doesn't show the Tests mini-module :(
That's annoyingly inconsistent, and missing out on this really helpful feature.
