HP Quality Center Test Run Progress ReportThe Test Run Progress report is the ultimate at-a-glance dashboard for your test suite execution.

Itís been said, ďNo man is an island.Ē No one team within that greater whole of software product development is even remotely island-shaped, either. No matter who I am there are those upon whom I rely, and who place their trust in me. An important lesson, learned too often under unpleasant circumstances by many of us. Donít fall into the same trap as many of your colleagues Ė you can communicate your groupís progress early, often, and in as great detail as you need.
The Test Run Progress report offers a great deal of power and flexibility in a deceptively-simple package. Just choose any custom period of time (days, weeks, months, etc.) and start/end dates and you have yourself an easy-to-read indicator of testing progress across the entire product, including: test case counts, percentage of unique test cases covered by these tests over time, as well as the status of the last run. If you want more detail, there are a total of 12 configurable parameters, adjusting levels of detail, depth of information, and more!
Numbers are all well and good, but this report can do even more. Remember how there are no islands in software development? Anyone from other managers, to team members, to executives looking for a quick timeline of your progress can use this report with ease. Two words: Graphical summaries. Take your data, aggregate it to its most concise forms, and let everyone have a look. And would you believe this report isnít done being useful? The same qualities that make the Test Run Progress report useful for at-a-glance summaries in your everyday progress-tracking duties will make this one of your best tools for executive summaries, meetings, and e-mail distribution lists to all concerned parties. This report can go anywhere due to exporting functionality and do it all in a number of formats suited to the common office tools.
