Pinned Items Overview

You can pin a requirement, test plan, or defect to enable you to jump to that item quickly, no matter which module you are in.


Assume you are a program manager and want to monitor the implementation of a specific requirement. By pinning it, you can quickly access it from any module in ALM, without having to open the Requirements Module and search for it.

ALM lets you pin up to 10 items for any project.

When an item has been pinned:

  • It appears in the Pinned Items panel.

  • The Pin/Unpin button in the toolbar appears "pressed" when the item is selected in the grid or tree view.

Note: A pinned item is specific to the user name with which you logged on.

For user interface details, see Pinned Items Panel.
