Filter Changes

To filter all objects with history of attribute changes, move to the filter input field by CtrlShiftF shortcut and choose Changed from the filter suggestions list, see Filter History.

Filter Comments

To filter all commented objects, move to the filter input field by CtrlShiftF shortcut and choose Commented from the filter suggestions list, see Filter Discussion.

Maintain suspect link flags to propagate changes of high-level objects to downstream objects linked by traceability links. A link becomes suspect if its target object changes. A suspect link displays the icon:

Traceability suspect link flag in the Links column

For more information about suspect link flags, see Suspect Link Flag.

Baseline

When you save a project, you can choose whether to save the project history. Tip: Save a project as a new project baseline stored as a Project File or Project Folder with clear history.

Version Control Systems

Store ReqView files under a version control system (such as SVN, GIT, or Mercurial) to baseline document revisions and to manage requirements together with source code and other documents.
