0006431: Reuse of test case steps
In large software projects it often happens that in many test cases is necessary to do certain steps to reach the desired test scenario. That means you often write the same steps over and over again for similar test cases.

It could be possible that you have some kind of glossar or keywords which you can choose via a dropdown list to add a "keyword" in the testcase description. Behind those keywords there are some steps you want to reuse also in other test cases as well.

After saving the test case and another tester opens this case and is maybe not so familiar with this, he could click and the keyword and sees in a small new window all the required steps behind those "keyword".

We would be very happen to have such functionality. If you have any questions don't hesitate to contact me. I would like to hear your opinion.
