- Project’s menu (2): With the suspension points you can display the options and pages regarding the selected project.
- Suite selection (3): Another drop down list allows you to define quickly the current suite for your project. This enhancement eliminates tedious steps to configure the selected suite.
- View selection (4): To give you a more customized experience, a drop down list allows you to choose which type of view you wish to see appear.

What is a selected suite?
A selected suite is a current suite selected for a project. Each execution has parameters such as configuration options you can find the executions management menu.
To select a suite, click on the drop down menu made for suites
The purpose of selecting a suite for a project is to modify the project parameters at global scale and thus vary the values dependent of the these parameters which are used in the project scripts.
If you choose execution "A" with the Chrome browser and select execution "B" with the Firefox browser, when you use the Browser parameter in a script, the value will automatically be Firefox for execution "B" and Chrome for execution “A”.
