Description Robinson Tryon (qubit) 2013-02-10 21:10:04 UTC
On Step #3 and Step #4 of the BSA, the user is not prompted to select or enter data in particular fields. It can be unclear what fields must be filled for the bug submission process to continue.

Suggested Fix:

Make a 'Next' button visible from the start. If the user clicks the Next button and additional information/selections are required, give the user instructions (in red text) next to each required field.

Note: This might be related to bug 60207.

Thanks qubit :-). As discussed on IRC, I can confirm this'll be a great enhancement. Therefore I set this as NEW.
Comment 2 Rob Snelders 2013-06-16 13:00:12 UTC
This is already fixed for the fields in step #4. Step 3 will need to be added still.

Rob thanks for the update. Can confirm step 4 shows which fields need info. Would be a great addition for Step 3. Any chance you could take care of that?

just a ping. this would be great to have fixed.

qubit / rob? any chance you could look into this? Only Step 3 is missing currently.

Hi James,

I'm a bit swamped with other work right now, but feel free to throw this back on my radar in the future and I might find some time to take a look at it.

Rob is also very busy, but he might be able to get a fix in faster than I :-)

Closing as WONTFIX. BSA has gone away and in the (hopefully near) future we will be using BZ's improved guided entry template: http://bugzilla.readthedocs.org/en/latest/integrating/templates.html#particular-templates
