improve the ergonomics of research (test and cycles libraries)

In the Tests or Cycles parts, when a folder has been selected and a search is performed, only the elements of the folder are part of the result.


We would like the selected folder not to be an implicit filter during searches (tests or cycles).

  • Perhaps a checkbox near the search field (or as a system/project setting), which allows you to filter (or not) according to the selected folder ...

  • Or maybe you could just remove the selected folder as a search filter, and explicitly make it a filter.

As a... QA/Tester
I would like... to be able to choose to (or not to) include the selected folder as a filter while I am searching
So that I... get by default all the searched items regardless of the selected folder

    IMHO (I am not ergonomist, just experienced user) people using a "search feature in the upper right corner" expect a search without any criteria except the text they put in the field, by default, like many softwares/sites use to handle searches.

    The current behavior may be disturbing for many people : say you are navigating into folders, trying to find the item you look for, not managing to find it, typing something in the search field, and finally not finding because the search is already narrowed to the last folder you were browsing...

    Thanks for this feedback. What would be the difference between a button and what is possible today by clicking on the all test "cases/cycles" so you look into all folders?
