Test Naming Convention

While exporting tests to QC is a great feature, the test names come out as Test 1, Test 2... Its not feasible to use excel create the names, then replace the earlier "Test 1" with the new name, especially if you have a lot of test cases
Is there a way a user could combine the test inputs and give the tests a name.
For e.g. I have 2 Test inputs and an area name and generate 10 tests
my first test would be
Test 1.1_Area_Input1_Val1_Input2_Val1
Test 1.2_Area_Input1_Val2_Input2_Val2

[Since Tanmay and I have spoken before, I called him up and discussed possible solutions by phone to be sure I understood what he was requesting and why (and so we could quickly discuss a couple possible ways of handling his issue)].


Thank you for the suggestion! I agree it will be an improvement. As we discussed just now, based o your input, our current plan (which may be revised a bit once I talk to our developers) is:

Instead of creating our default output of test numbers as 1, 2, 3, 4... for test case numbers, we will move to a format more like: 1_TheTestPlanName, 2_TheTestPlanName, 3_TheTestPlanName, 4_TheTestPlanName, etc.
