It's not easy to create a custom report. It's not straightforward. A good improvement would be if there was a way to report and create a custom report without using a plugin or scripting language.I've encountered at some point, some difficulties on the administration side, but I don't remember exactly what they were.It would be useful if it had its own issue management system. At the moment, it's purely a test management tool and you have to link to a defect management tool, like JIRA. It would be useful if there was an option to use its own defect management tool so that it's integrated and not two separate tools.Better prediction of text.The TestRail API to integrate reporting of automated tests is complete, but requires many requests to identify the appropriate entry.There are a number of improvements that have been requested. While I don't have a list of these requests available, many can be found on Gurock's forum.It would be nice if they would add an export to Word.
