Adding New Statements and Requirements

Last modified on March 5th, 2018.


To add a new 'Statement' or 'Requirement' to your Requirements Document, you will need to locate the blue '+ New Requirement' split drop-down button on the top left of your requirements document toolbar.

This button consists of a primary button and a secondary drop-down menu grouped together. By clicking on the secondary drop-down menu and selecting a menu item from the list, you change which function happens by default when the primary button is clicked. In this case, the drop-down menu allows you to save a user preference as to whether the primary button will add a new Requirement or Statement entity to your requirements document.

By default, the primary function of the split button is set to add a New Requirement entity, as denoted in the text of the primary button.

Adding at the End of the Document

  1. To add a new requirement at the end of your requirements document, ensure you are not currently editing a row and that the word 'Requirement' is displayed in the text of the 'Add New' split button. Click the left side of the button.

    * Note: The set of buttons available on the toolbar in will change depending on whether or not you are currently editing a row.

  2. Clicking '+ New Requirement' will navigate you to the end of your document, where a new row has been added. You will find the 'Number' input field already populated with an automatically suggested number based on the entity’s hierarchical position in the document. Here you can quickly type in a name, description and other attributes of your new requirement.

  3. When you have finished entering information, click the 'Save Changes' button to confirm adding your new requirement to your document.

Adding After the Current Row

  1. To add a new requirement after a specific row within your document, first ensure that you are not currently editing a row and that the word 'Requirement' is displayed in the text of the 'Add New' split button.

  2. Locate the existing document entity that you would like to add a requirement after, and click anywhere within that requirement’s displayed row to enter edit mode of that row.

    *Note: Once in edit mode, the set of buttons available on the toolbar will change to a set of buttons providing editing functions, which can be performed on the currently selected document entity.

  3. Click on the blue '+ Add After' button.

    This will automatically save any changes that may have been made to the existing row currently in edit mode, and a new row will be added, already in edit mode at the same level in the hierarchy after your original chosen document entity. You will find the 'Number' input field already populated with an automatically suggested number based on the entity’s hierarchical position in the document. Here you can quickly type in a name, description and other attributes of your new requirement.

  4. When you have finished entering information, click the 'Save Changes' button to confirm adding your new requirement to your document.

Adding a Child of the Current Row

  1. To add a child requirement to an existing row, or document entity, ensure you are not currently editing a row and that the word 'Requirement' is displayed in the text of the 'Add New' split button.

  2. Locate the document entity which you'd like to add a child to and click anywhere within the requirement’s displayed row to enter edit mode of that row.

    * Note: Once in edit mode, the set of buttons available on the toolbar will change to a set of buttons providing editing functions, which can be performed on the currently selected document entity.

    This will automatically save any changes that may have been made to the existing row currently in edit mode, and a new row will be added, already in edit mode, at a level below in the hierarchy after your original chosen document entity.
