September 29, Session Recap
Q: How can we upload test cases from excel to Rally do we have any templete ?
A: You have two main ways to achieve this: (1) if you go to Quality -> Test Cases and click import then you can download our template, you can use it to upload your test cases (2) What many do is use the Excel add-in to export the fields you need, then use that as a template to upload/import test cases back into Rally.
Q: I know different organisations will have customized version of templates - is there any Rally recommended Quality Dashboard Template that can be shared?
A: Dashboards are very specific to customers, teams and even individuals and as such we aren't providing dashboard templates. This should be an enhancement request. Please follow this process to submit it. We

Q: We are in the Central time zone and I have found that the Throughput report includes work items as Accepted prior to 1 am on the next day. This indicates to me that the Throughput is based on the Mountain Timezone, because it includes the hour after midnight central time.
A: This is a defect. The collection service does run at midnight in the timezone of your workspace, which you had said is Central. Sometimes there are glitches in this collection and Support can re-run it for you. Please open up a support case and they'll work it for you.
Q: We've recently transitioned from a Kanban Board to a Team Board in Rally. Two of the 'quirks' we've noticed is the card colors (which is not as prominate) and WIP Limits (banner has been removed). Any thoughts on making these items more prominate in the Team Board?
A: These are very good enhancement requests. Please follow this process to submit then.
