Creating a Custom Tab

You can create and delete custom tabs with specific user-defined attributes.

To create a custom tab

  1. Click Administration.
  2. Click Requirement Types. The Requirement Types dialog box is displayed.
  3. Select a requirement type from the Requirement Types list. The Edit button becomes available.
  4. Click Edit. The window for the chosen requirement type is displayed.
  5. Click the New button to create a new custom tab for your new requirement type. The New Custom Tab window is displayed.
  6. Enter a name for your new custom tab in the Name field. The name should be 64 characters or less to avoid display problems.
  7. Click the Change Icon button and navigate to the icon you want to use to assign an icon for your custom tab.
  8. Select the user-defined attribute(s) from the Available list and click the Move Left button to move the attribute to the Selected list. To change the attribute order, select attributes in the Selected list and click the Move Up or Move Down button.
  9. Click OK.
    Note: Custom tabs are specific to the requirement type. Therefore, you must create a custom tab for each requirement type that you want to contain a custom tab. User-defined attributes are assigned to requirements and displayed on custom tabs. If you display the same user-defined attribute on multiple custom tabs in a single requirement type, the user-defined attribute will be the same on all tabs. If you change the data on one tab, the data changes on all tabs.

Adding a summary: The Summary tab provides a text area in which you may document information that may be specific to this requirement type for the project it is assigned to. You can edit this field at any time.
