Changing the Requirement Order

If you are an administrator or if the move requirement is enabled, you can change the requirement order in any of the following ways:

  • Using the commands: Using the commands in the Edit menu, you can move requirements only within the parent.
  • Using the buttons on the toolbar: Using buttons on the toolbar, you can move requirements only within the parent. You cannot change the hierarchical level of requirements using the toolbar buttons, nor can you move a requirement to another requirement type.
  • Dragging and dropping the requirements: Using drag-and-drop, you can move a requirement anywhere you want, even to another requirement type.
