Summary0002428: Create requirement spec printout word format
DescriptionJust like we've option for Test Plan/Reports to be exported into Microsoft Word, it'll be great to have similar option for the requirements to be exported in a Word format. Right now the requirements can only be exported in csv & xml format. It'll be a perfect feature to have as then we can export the requirements in a human readable and common format which can then be sent out to the rest of the project's stakeholders.

Export is not the right word IMHO, you want to create a document with requirements.

exports are done to share information between systems, not to display it to users (IMHO)

You are right fman. Create a document is the right word..
I hope this feature will be added soon :)

Basically we're looking to capture all the requirements under one parent tree (incl. all children) in a word document.

There is confusing button 'print' which generate HTML page.
TODO modify the name to 'Generate document'.

Is it correct my impression that it generates just one level of requirements but not all child suites?

is not an impression is a fact, all req features need to be refactore to manage hierarchy.
What was done on 1.8.0, was enable possibility to manage in a limited way this hierarchy.

Ok. I will add a note to User guide for 1.8.
Child printing should be fixed within 1.9. Added target release.

As fman said, it just prints one level of requirements. None of the child requirements are printed. I've already raised a separate bug for this [^]
I think both the issues can be fixed together.

With this new feature, we should be able to create/print a spec in word format that includes all the chlidren under one parent tree.

2434 is related to generate ndepth document.
This request is asking possibility to call msword to receive the document. I can acknowledge this. I have prepared functionality for test plan/report to be reused also for SRS. So, it should not be too difficult.

I was confused that you choose severity for bug instead of feature.

Thx mhavlat for acknowledging this bug. Can you confirm if this bug will also be fixed as part of the 1.9 release or will it be fixed before that?

Feature exists in TestLink 1.9.16 :
in Requirements Box -> Generate Requirement Specification Document (Pseudo MS Word)

Should be closed
