Did you receive an email notification that someone shared an iRise project with you? Or perhaps someone sent you a direct link to an iRise project? Now what?
This article answers just that. It will take you on a tour of the Reviewer experience in iRise Manager and touch on all the important functions you can utilize while managing requirements in a project
As a Reviewer, you can manage Requirements in iRise. Utilize the Dashboard to look at a list of your most recently accessed projects, or the My Projects tab to look at a directory of projects on your Definition Center. Once you’ve found a project to review, click on the ‘Manage’ icon to open the project up in iRise Manager.
While in Manager you can utilize the Filter Bar to filter through requirements based on string values or attributes. This allows you to properly sort through your requirements to look at specific data. Click into the filter bar and start typing a string or attribute name to see your options to search. Manager will attempt to fill in the blanks and provide you comparisons to check against, such as whether an attribute equals a specific value.
The Requirements Panel allows you to review any requirements tied to the project you are currently reviewing. Opening the panel by clicking on the requirement card will show you the attributes of the requirement in addition to attachments, related items, and comments.
On every requirement card you’ll see a Details tab. This tab shows you the attributes of the currently selected requirement. You can manipulate any of these attributes as the requirement is updated. You will initially see a default requirements schema set by the Administrator. The iRise Administrator has the ability to update the default schema should you need to add or remove elements.
Each of the attributes can be grouped categories that allow you to further separate them based on purpose.
The Related tab allows you to keep track of screens, links, and other requirements that tie directly to the currently selected requirement.
The Attachments tab allows you to attach files to a requirement so that others will be able to view them. Most file types are accepted as attachments in iRise, including image and other media files in addition to document files.
The comments tab allows you to leave detailed feedback regarding your requirements. Commenting on a requirement in Manager allows the team to organize their feedback and keep track of the various changes that have been made throughout the life of the requirement. You can tag team members with an @ mention to notify them that you have made a comment they need to be aware of.
Columns & Rows
Manager allows you to organize your requirements into a card view based on specific attributes. You can choose to sort them into columns, rows, or both. To set the table view, click on either the columns or rows dropdowns in the top right of the interface and select which attribute you want to organize by.
In order for you to be able to organize either columns or rows by a specific attribute, that attribute needs to have defined options instead of being free-form text.
When utilizing the filter bar or columns and rows, Manager can save your setup as a view. Saving a configuration of requirements as a view will allow you to come back into the project and view that specific configuration at any time, as opposed to having to set the configuration up every time you come back into Manager.
