  • Hi NathCorp,

    Thanks for your post.

    In TFS, work item is used to track the work. For example, a task is required to be completed in 3 days or a bug needs to be fixed. For more detail information about work item, please refer to this document. Work item query is a collection of work items which meet the query filter. Please refer to this document, it will help you understand work item query.

  • Hi Vishwajeet,

    Workitem is a entity. Example: Task, Requirement, Bug or Test case etc.

    Workitem query: which is used to extract results of your work items. Example, how many tasks are closed, how many requirements are open, how many work items are assigned to which user etc.

    Hope this answer helps you. 

    Thanks,
