Filter, View, and Search Requirements

The Requirements page allows users to view, search, and filter all Requirements and see their associated categories, dependencies, and test plans.

What are Requirements?

Requirements are the goals a piece of software must achieve in order to be accepted. For example, the Requirements of a website might be that it works on devices and is usable across browsers. Plutora Test allows users to create any number of Requirements that can be reused in multiple tests.
