ReqView is a smooth-running and very intuitive piece of software that provides you with all the necessary tools for creating well-structured documentation files or system requirements documents for your software projects.
Once the application is deployed on your computer's system and upon first launching it, you are met by a Welcome screen followed by a handy "How-To" starting guide.
Getting to grips with ReqView shouldn't be much of a challenge since its user interface is very well structured, with a typical menu bar, a useful top toolbar, a Document Structure panel on the left side of the main window, a Requirements Table in the middle and another universally-useful panel on the right.
You can start off by loading one of the provided document demos, import your work from already existing HTML or CSV files, take advantage of the available templates to get a head start or simply create a new document from scratch.
Having said this, you can edit your documentations in rich text format, you can attach images, PDFs or other types of files and link them via custom links. Going a bit more in-depth, you can also filter, edit and define various requirements such as target release, priority and acceptance criteria, as well as add attributes for requirements, test cases or risk documents.
One of the most noteworthy features of ReqView is definitely its capability to trace links and to generate traceability reports. Thanks to a smart Traceability Matrix, you can browse the document's structure at a glance.
Additionally, you can actually keep track of the changes of any attribute within your projects. It's also of high relevance to point out that you can encrypt documents and even share them with your team members using one of the most popular, specialized service, namely Google Drive. Lastly, ReqView makes it possible for you to export your projects to Word or Excel files, as well as to formats such as HTML or CSV.
All in all, a few minutes spent working with ReqView and it becomes clear that the app does its job valiantly. By managing to pack a plethora of useful and specialized features, without feeling cumbersome for the everyday user, ReqView is definitely a must-have if you want to create well-structured system requirement documentation in as little time and with as little effort as possible.
At the time at which this review was written, the application was still in a fairly young development stage, having just transitioned from a web app to a Windows application with the help of the Electron framework. Since we haven't come across anything out of the ordinary and the app seems to be very stable, there's a good chance that future versions will be just as good, if not even better - with the additions of more features.
