The UI for managing test cases, test sets, test runs could be a little more integrated, currently, these feel disjointed at times and confusing. Also, the test steps page needs to display the test steps closer to the top of the UI so as to not have to scroll down to find. While the training is adequate, I would like to have a more robust online training option available for various users of the system, since there are admins users and test creators and end testers I feel that having training targeted to each of the basic roles would be helpful.

The product search is user-friendly, but guidance for integration with other tools needs to improve further. If an organization decides to move from an existing tool to spiratest, a migration through integrstion is the best way, in my opnion. But the guideline and menu to such features needs some effort from the user. Some smart guidelines for integration can help. The bestvpart is that most plugins required for an integration are available. Just that the search friendliness can be improved further. For example, Migrating can be improved further by giving a trello like UI for a pick and choose. The plug-ins should be easier and more integrated rather than the user trying to integrate the tools which are more popular, like Jira et al. Particularly on the DevOps based development platform. I think there's a lot of exploration that needs to be done on SpiraTest.

It should develop integration with JIRA. We have some complexities which caused us not to decide to integrate it with our JIRA, like synchronous data. I would like to see a more flexible configuration of the reports in the next release of this solution.
