Dear ALMComplete customers!
SmartBear has based this EOL decision on market, customer, and Partner feedback. SmartBear will continue to focus on Test Management versus Application Lifecycle Management.
As of August 1, 2015, we are not accepting any new quotes for ALMComplete.
Customers can purchase maintenance renewals up to September 30, 2015. Customers on active maintenance will continue to receive product support until September 30, 2016. For customers on active maintenance, there is no interruption to product or service until that maintenance expires or until the official end of life date [September 30, 2016] <whichever comes first>.
After the ALMComplete maintenance expires, or at any time before this date, you can migrate to QAComplete. The two most popular features of ALMComplete will now be a part of QAComplete. These features are Shared Documents and List Management.
Will the shared documents and list management features be added in a future version of QAComplete? We have QAComplete enterprise and those were the two features we wanted from ALMComplete. Considered an upgrade last year, but were disappointed when we heard about the end of life. Thanks.
I cannot tell you if these features will be added to QAComplete. I suggest that you submit this as product improvement ideas in our QAComplete Feature Requests forum. Our Product Owner reviews the list of ideas on a regular basis. Thus, she could consider adding them to one of new product versions.
We are pleased to tell you that the shared documents and list management features will be added to a future version of QAComplete.
We really value your feedback.
Thank you for using our products!
Thanks, that's great news. Do you by chance know a timeframe when that may be implemented (or what version)? Also, are there currently any known workarounds for this in QAComplete? We've updated our testing process and are now trying to use QAComplete to add more test artifact types (e.g. use cases, data definitions, etc.). This is somewhat difficult because we only have a certain number of traceable object type to work with in the tool now. Thanks.
