In QC there is an option to set a "Blocked" status for a testing scenarios which are unable to be tested due to a blocking defect. I wonder if there is an option to attach the actual blocking defect to these tests?

Of course it is possible to just include it "Comments" field but maybe there is a more neat way to do it?

I used to work with QC and there is a way, but I no longer use it so can't provide any detailed instructions – Phil Kirkham Apr 16 '13 at 13:31
Can you please tell how you are blocking the scenario? Then may be I can help. – asma Apr 19 '13 at 9:55
@asma Yes, this is just one of the available test case statuses. The others are: Passed, Failed, Not Completed ... – Eugene S Apr 19 '13 at 13:58

I hope this video will be useful to answer this question. But it is a very common question which you would have found just by Googling :/

Two things to note - 1) QC version may be different 2) Blocked TC is not a special case I believe :) – Saik0 Apr 21 '13 at 10:14
