Re: Welcome to the Telelogic DOORS discussion forum2008-11-03T14:01:06Z in response to SystemAdminThis is it? One forum? What happened to the separated forums for different topics? General Discussion, Administration, DXL, Bug Reports, etc?
You guys are going to have to do a lot better than this.

Re: Welcome to the Telelogic DOORS discussion forum2008-11-03T14:32:15Z in response to dpechacekCompletely agree with David.
Also, folks, you can expect the old forums to go away completely. There is a LOT of valuable DXL/DOORS knowledge there. And it's just going to be gone in a year.
Please use my site (http://www.baselinesinc.com) and others to store DOORS information. Since the old forums aren't going to be around forever, and in fact, you can't even reply to current discussions...in my mind, it has just been shown over and over that Telelogic cannot be completely trusted with this data.
I have a DXL repository and can post a discussion forum as well. If you're interested, please post here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know. I will only do it if people are genuinely interested.
My promise to you--even if I get out of this whole Requirement Management business, I will keep our data online as long as I am able to.

Re: Welcome to the Telelogic DOORS discussion forum2008-11-03T20:00:33Z in response to dpechacekAh, you can make posts. I just took Telelogic's/IBM's word for it. I also noticed that as of this morning, DOORS 8.1-9.1 are all available for download. Which, again, is not what they said would be happening.

Re: Welcome to the Telelogic DOORS discussion forum2008-11-03T23:41:07Z in response to kbmurphyI agree with dpechacek. We need to increase the granularity of these forums.
I looked at DOORS 9.1 earlier today for about an hour. Not much to get excited about. I see it has a new feature; History Check. Go to Tools -> Check data against history... when you are in a module. I don't remember seeing this in previous versions.
Re: Welcome to the Telelogic DOORS discussion forum2008-11-03T18:21:14Z in response to SystemAdminHi Andy, I fully agree with the other postings. The existing forum structure needs to be maintained including the ability to post dxl, and as the existing forums provide a valuable resource they really must be moved over and not lost. Anything else would be a retrograde step.

Re: Welcome to the Telelogic DOORS discussion forum2008-11-05T23:31:15Z in response to SystemAdminHello all,
I'm writing as forum thread police. This is the welcome thread that will remain stuck towards the top of the forum. I've started separate threads for two of the open topics about our online DOORS community:
how many forums
legacy forum info
Henceforth, please post new thoughts about those topics in those threads. Other, unrelated items should be put in a new, well-labeled thread.
Personally, I find that forums are more useful and easier to navigate if people make a real effort to confine topics to the well-named subject under which they fall. Am I being too picky or bossy here?

Re: Welcome to the Telelogic DOORS discussion forum2009-05-22T12:37:30Z in response to SystemAdminHi! I am an 18 yr stay at home mom that returned to corporate america 3 years ago - that said, I still have a lot to learn! When I chose my screen name for this forum I didn't realize I could use my real name! So much of this tech stuff is meant to be elusive! May I change from "DOORs" to eearle? If so, how? I really like having this forum available - there are times that we work harder not smarter just because we are not aware of little things available to us in DOORs! Hope someone replies!! Elysa Earle
