Relationship matrix counter
« on: July 17, 2010, 03:23:17 am »
Hi,
having worked with our own version of the relationship matrix I'm missing a feature which we have in our excel files and I can not create in a relationship matrix in EA.
Our Excel matrix looks something like this:
REQ1REQ2REQ3
Totals102
REQA2xx
REQB0
REQC1x

The useful bit is now the totals row/ column, where we have a Null for items which are orphans and do not have any relationship.

To see orphans in this kind of view is currently not rely possible but this would make it possible (there are other ways to find orphans I know... ;D)
Additionally it would be very useful to filter the total row/ colum, to show only orphans or items with at least a number of relations...

Currently I achieve this by exporting things to Excel and adding the countIF statement to get to the required information.  

Hope this makes some sense and would not only be useful to me

Best regards

Hi Pablo,
just while revisting this post I've just realized the request to file this request properly.
I've done it now and the name is: Relationship matrix counter
