To avoid merge namemapping if import projects

Hi, 

 

I try to combine projects into a suite. However, projects are recorded by different members with different VM.

That means I would do lots of merge namemapping works. How could I avoid this issue? Since we all test same app in same VM environment.  Thanks for any suggestion.

  • We solved the problem of lots of merge work by doing it more often.  We also alternated who had to do the merge.

     

    Do a merge every couple of weeks.  Test the new name mapping with the master test, then when it passes, give everyone a copy of the new name mapping.  Now you are all starting from the same place again. 

     

    The merges shouldn't be too bad if you keep the name mapping cleaned up as you go.
