Friday, June 02, 2006 12:32 PMIs there a way to associated a work item with another work item? When a task comes through, sometimes it may be required to assign different parts of the task to different deparments (PM, QA, Dev, Ops, etc), but we would still like those tasks to be associated with the single main task that brought about it. Is this functionality built in or do I need to make a custom Work item?

I normally do the latter when the work item already exists (i.e. if closing a bug because it is a duplicate of another then I like to link to the one it is a duplicate of to complete the tracking process)
Hope that helps,
