Project teams can provide feedback on requirements and projects through the Group Discussion feature. This collaborative feature enables team members to enter and reply to comments to help define, refine and prioritize requirements.

There are two levels of discussions:

Tip: When a requirement has a discussion item that has not been read, an unread discussion indicator is located to the left of the requirement name in the requirement list. When you read the message, the indicator disappears.

Project Level discussion

Project level discussion is available for each project. You can access it by selecting the project name in the requirement list and clicking the Discussion tab. See related information on “Reading a Message”.

Requirement Level Discussion

There are three ways to determine if a requirement has an unread discussion item:

  • the unread discussion indicator in the requirement tree
  • the unread discussion list
  • the unread discussion indicator associated with the message entry on the Discussion tab
