Once selected QVscribe will open the text in the selected artifact into the QVscribe authoring view. The authoring view is made of 3 sections.

Artifact text

This section provides access to the text of the artifact with any alerts highlighted and colour coded. 


Within 2 seconds of any changes to the text,  QVscribe will automatically rerun the quality analysis updating the score and any associated alerts according to the active configuration. Once the text updates are complete, simply close the QVscribe authoring view to update the text in the artifact. 


QVscribe will not commit any changes to DOORS Next. It will be important to complete your changes in DOORS Next as you normally would.


The alerts section will identify all associated alerts with the selected text. Red alerts indicate issues that are affecting the quality score of the requirement while yellow alerts provide warnings recommending additional attention.

 Selecting any of the alerts will expand the alert, displaying additional information about the alert for the author's consideration.


The filters section provides users with the ability to filter the specific alerts that are displayed in the Authoring view. 

Selecting any of the alert categories will filter the alerts, displaying only the selected category. 

Additionally, the filter section provides the quality score for the requirement and also displays the link to select from several EARS Templates.  See QVscribe for DOORS Next EARS Templates section for more details.
