You can use Text-to-software to create all the use cases and requirements for your application. For more information, see the Help topics in this book.

Creating Use Cases with Text-to-Software

For information about what a use case is and how to use it, see Working With Use Cases and Requirements.

To create a use case using Text-to-software, you use the general format “[Name1] has a [component] named [Name2].” where [Name1] is the name of the application, [component] is use case, and [Name2] is the name of the use case.

If you haven’t named your application, you can use the format “SageTea has a use case named [Name].”, where [Name] is the name of the use case you are creating.

For example, if you want to create a use case named “Bravo” in an application called “Alpha,” write “Alpha has a use case named Bravo.” Here’s the same thing if you haven’t named your application: “SageTea has a use case named Bravo.”

To put text in your use case, you start a paragraph with the name of the use case, followed by a period. That will tell Text-to-Software that the paragraph is the contents of the use case. It will then not create fields from the rest of the paragraph. The text you write will appear in the Description box when you click the use case.

For example, if you wanted your use case Bravo to contain a simple haiku, you could write something like this:
“Alpha has a use case named Bravo.

TO CREATE A USE CASE
1. Write one of the following:
• “[Name1] has a [component] named [Name2].” where [Name1] is the name of the application, [component] is use case, and [Name2] is the name of the use case.
• “SageTea has a use case named [Name].”, where [Name] is the name of the use case you are creating.
2. In a new paragraph, write “[Name].” Then, in the same paragraph, write the contents of your use case.

Creating Requirements with Text-to-Software

For information about requirements and how they work in Text-to-Software, see Working With Use Cases and Requirements.

To create a requirement using Text-to-software, you use the general format “[Name1] has a [component] named [Name2].” where [Name1] is the use case where you want the requirement to appear, [component] is requirement, and [Name2] is the name of the requirement.

NOTE! The use case must be already created in the Word doc, or already exist in the application.

TO CREATE A REQUIREMENT
• Write “[Name1] has a [component] named [Name2].” where [Name1] is the use case where you want the requirement to appear, [component] is requirement, and [Name2] is the name of the requirement.
