Summary0001720: "Bulk user assignment" - the button for feature "check all" is not recognizable as a button
Description"The GUI is misleading in the feature", but, if to be more specific, I would say - The button for feature "check all" is not recognizable as a button.
Additional InformationSteps to reproduce:
1. Loging as admin
2. Create Project, Test Plan, Test Suite, Test Case and User
3. Click link "Assign Test Case execution"
4. Click link Project
5. Double click link Test Suite
6. Click link Test Case
7. Select "user" from "Bulk user assignment" dropdown menu
8. Click Button "Do" - nothing changed in "Assigned to" text box.
9. Select "admin" from "Assigned to" dropdown menu
10. Click Button "Do" - now "admin" in "Assigned to" text box is changed to "user".
TagsNo tags attached.

Yes, I did, but what I did not see - possibility to apply the same label, which I selected from "Bulk user assignment" dropdown menu, to all test cases, so I decided that if we need to do this, we have to use "Bulk user assignment" without any additional checking and, if we need to make some selection, we have to use check box of appropriate test case. I have checked manual and could not find any information about this. Only today, just by chance, I noted that exists feature "check all".
I cannot call it "button", because it is absolutely flat. If it is a button - it has to be relief to be recognized as a button, or it has to be a check box - to be more visible.

OK, that's a good point.

so please tell us, what exactly is the bug now

a) The functionality bulk assignment is not working
b) The GUI is misleading in the feature

Also please update the bug according to a) or b) so we all know what the problem is and what we have to do...

Yes, we can say:"The GUI is misleading in the feature", but, if to be more specific, I would say - The button for feature "check all" is not recognizable as a button.
What do mean "update the bug" - report new issue?

check all is not a button is an clickable image , and same concept has been used on other parts of TL.
And adding some label on it will destroy layout.
I've seen this kind of interface multiple time on other apps.

Anyway we can this how to improve interface.
Till now is firts issue rised for this feature, than can means that:
- nobody has never used or undesrtood it
- or other users have understood how this work, or have figured how it works

may be a little help text on page will help
