Color Code External Requirements

External requirements can be color coded on a diagram, to provide quick visual cues indicating the status of a requirement. The color code requirements use these default conventions:

  • Yellow for 'Proposed'
  • Blue for 'Approved'
  • Green for 'Validated'
  • Orange for 'Mandatory'
  • Black for 'Implemented'

You can change these colors, and add or remove status types, using the 'Status Types' dialog.
