Custom Data Sections for Documents
Matrix comes with many predefined document section to export data, e.g.
a sequential list of all items
items with some of the fields in a tabular form
various trace tables
Using custom data sections it is possible to create documents and excel table with your own rules and design.
Each custom section defines the input (items to be shown) and the layout to be used.
The layouts itself are stored in a dedicated project called PRINT.
Adding custom sections
Once the layout has been defined you can add a custom section to your document:
In the section you define
(1) the items over which to iterate
(2) which items to possibly include (by default all, but you could use this to exclude some items, e.g. from previous test runs)
(3), (4) the layout to be used
There are two kinds of layouts: Tables and Lists. Both can be generated as word documents. Tables can also be exported to excel.
