Inspector - Status

The 'Status' tab on the Inspector window provides a quick outline for reviewing the status and priority of all elements of type Requirement in a diagram. This triage tool helps you to focus on what is most important right now, as well as provides a clear view of what can be postponed.

With a diagram selected in the Browser, and the 'Status' tab selected, you can see:

  • A list of all elements in a diagram
  • An indicator of the element Status
  • An indicator of the element Priority

For each element in a diagram there is a line in the 'Status' tab with:

  • Element name
  • Status icon
  • Priority icon

Note:The listing indent respects the Browser nesting of an element.

Configuring the Status color

The color of the status indicator can be user-defined in the 'Status Types' dialog. The shape for the 'Status' indicator is fixed as a circle.  For more details see the Status Type Help topic.

Configuring the Priority shape and color

To give each Priority Type a clear visual reference you can assign a particular shape and a color. The shapes available are:

  • Square
  • Circle
  • Triangle
  • Diamond

For more details see the Priority Types Help topic.
