Drop-down options:

  • New Defect. Opens the New Defect dialog box, enabling you to manually submit a defect.

  • Submit Defect. (Default) Enables you to automatically include defect scenario information in your defect. For details, see the Smart Defect Settings Dialog Box.

When you create a defect from the defect reminders pane, the same information is available for you to include in the defect as is available when you open the defect during the run. You can include a screen capture of the application as it appeared for the user action when the reminder was created, and the steps or actions in your test run.

When you create a defect from a defect reminder, the defect reminder is deleted.
