Can the delete buttons get a confirmation or moved away from other buttons?

Several of my QA engineers have complained that the test execute button and test step edit button are too close to the delete button. Too often they have accidentally deleted imporant data without any way of recovering it, short of using the entire backup.

FYI: We just went to Release and the Delete confirmation exists and works great!


Hi Greg,

Can you provide a screenshot of what your team is having issue with and, if possible, a visual description of where your team would prefere the button be moved to. This would help our design team when review enchancements.



My issue is that the delete trashcan icon is too close to the pencil in "Expected Result". It is also in the same spot as the "Add" and "Update" buttons. It would be best to add an "Are you sure you want to delete" message. Or remove the trashcan entirely and put "Delete Test Step" under the "More Actions" drop down. This would insure that someone really means to delete a step.

I tried that too ... much to my amusement I deleted a test step.

Moreover when adding test steps this isn't shown in the work log, so once deleted, it's gone. Best hope you can recreate the step ;o)

Any updates on this?

Thank you.

Confirmation dialogue in 2.1 release has fixed this issue.
