Add a Back button when looking at results in the Desktop app

When looking into results from a plan run, it would be super helpful to have a Back button to navigate back to the plan from individual test results.

Current Scenario:

  1. I run a plan from a branch to ensure my changes haven't broken everything.

  2. A handful of individual tests fail and i need to investigate each one.

  3. I click the first failed test in the results to see where it failed.

  4. Make notes.

  5. I have to click on the Plans button so see all of our plans and sort through the list of plans again to find the one I ran

  6. Click on that plan

  7. Expand the resutls

  8. Click on the next failed test


Ideal Scenario:

  1. I run a plan from a branch to ensure my changes haven't broken everything.

  2. A handful of individual tests fail and i need to investigate each one.

  3. I click the first failed test in the results to see where it failed.

  4. Make notes.

  5. Click a Back button & am returned to the plan I was already looking at with results still expanded.


The "Ideal Scenario" cuts out a few steps that aren't overly burdensome, but this would be a great Quality of Life improvement, especially in the case I'm dealing with at the moment where 5 or 6 tests failed on my branch run and I need to investigate why.


On the web this is easier because I can use the browser's back button to get back to the plan and/or open individual test results in new tabs.

    Hi Chris, thank you for submitting this feature request! While we currently do not have a Back button from the test results page, the desktop app will allow you to navigate to the previous page by selecting the "Back" option from the right-click menu
