'Right-sized' between capability versus ease of use and maintenance.

Pros: We are a small development group that does not have the bandwidth to justify dedicated resources to learn and customize a complex tool. We have periods of heavy activity followed by months of not touching the tool, so ease of use was at the top of our list of priorities. Additionally, being in the medical device field, we already have many systems in place and do not want to disrupt what is already running smoothly. ReqView is very specific about what it is trying to accomplish, and does it well. It is easy to learn (we have only needed the online documentation) and the pricing makes it a no-brainer to start playing with. The product is definitely a work in progress, with new features being added on a regular basis. A couple of them have been as a result of requests I made personally, so you can't get better responsiveness than that! Rather than trying to do everything, ReqView provides straightforward import and export to standard MS Office software. For version control, we treat it like source code in a Subversion database, but it can be used on a shared drive. Updates are easy and automatic. It's not SAAS, which our IT department would have nixed for security reasons, plus there's not the delay involved with remote servers.

Cons: Customization of outputs to fit the needs of the project documentation is usually a bear, and ReqView is no exception. We had the same issue (except worse!) with previous RM software. Someone who is well-versed in HTML and CSS might find this easy, and there is copious documentation available at w3schools.com, but I admit to spending much more time to generate a half dozen or so output scripts than the rest of the first project in its entirety! Now they are done, so it's no longer an issue for the future, but it was a steep curve. Obviously, if you only need formats closer to those provided, your experience will be easier.

Overall: An easy-to-implement and -maintain requirements management system. It doesn't try and be the answer to everything we have ever needed in our development process, which usually leads to overly complicated software which drives your system, rather than the other way around. ReqView fills just the slot we need it to.

It works fine, very flexible and easy to use. I miss the possibility for trace and impact anala

Pros: Easy and flexible. Use of standards e.g. json. The csv export is useful. Exporting from a csv is a useful feature, but sometimes it won't work.

Cons: I would like tpo have a intelligence in some rows. Referencing others and esecute a small script (e.g. LUA ). I miss the possibility to run two instaces with different projects.

Overall: Linking between requirements of different documents (but without analysis)

Hello Bernd,

thank you for your review.

Regarding missing possibility for trace / impact analysis, you can generate custom multilevel traceability HTML reports enabling coverage / impact analysis. Please file a support ticket if you are unsure how to use this feature or if you have additional special needs. We will be happy to help.

Good news is also that we are going to release soon the first beta of Templated Columns feature which will enable adding custom logic directly in the UI. For instance you will be able to display additional traceability information from the linked objects (even across multiple traceability levels) or display value of a calculated expression (e.g. Risk Priority Number).

Pros: Very easy to get started with and use, like a spreadsheet specifically designed for requirements. I like the plain text storage, since i can get keep it in a git repo for changes.

Cons: some areas are a little too basic + theres some annoying features of the workflow i.e. when jumping between docs the page will often jump to the top when you wanted it to stay on a specific requirement.

Overall: Easy requirements management vs excel

Pros: It has apparently been created by people who understand requirements management.

It checks almost all boxes that are important to me. It pretty much takes the good parts of DOORS, and leaves out the bad ones.

The ReqView team are very responsive, and attentive to the desires of their users. I have great expectations for future releases.

Cons: There are currently three different implementations (native app, web app, Chrome extension), all of which are missing a bit of functionality that's important to me, even though other implementations have it.

Great software that is easy to use and most importantly, they are responsive to new feature requests

Pros: The software provides traceability within and between documents with customizable outputs. The web-based program makes working from different machines a breeze.

Cons: The fields sometimes exhibit quirky behavior. If I am editing a field and switch applications, the text is lost - it works fine, if I change fields before leaving the app; so the work-around is not a real problem.
