We have released ReqView 2.3.0 which is now also available as a native application for Linux. It introduces Calculated Columns, Traceability Columns, English Spell Checker and other exciting features.

Calculated Columns

You can add a template column displaying live dynamic content directly in the application UI. For instance, you can add a column calculating the risk priority number (RPN):

Traceability Columns

The template column can also display list of linked objects across multiple traceability levels including attributes of linked objects.

For instance, you can add a column giving you end-to-end traceability view from the top level user stories (NEEDS) via requirements (SRS) down to validation records (TESTS):

You can update traceability links of multiple document objects from CSV. In Excel create a CSV file with id column storing document object ID and a column per each updated traceability link type storing list of link target objects, e.g. satisfaction column. Then import the CSV by File > Import > CSV File > Update Document.
