You can add a follow up flag to a specific requirement, test, test instance, or defect to remind yourself to follow up on an issue. For example, you can set a follow up flag on a defect to remind yourself to check the status in a week.
When you add a follow up flag, ALM adds a gray flag icon to the record. When the follow up date arrives, ALM sends you email and changes the flag icon to red.
A follow up flag is specific to the user name with which you logged on. You can open the follow up flag at any time to view or modify the details.
For user interface details, see Flag For Follow Up Dialog Box.
