Copy field when creating linked work item RRS feed

  • Question

  • I cannot figure out what controls that IterationPath and AreaPath is copied from a Product Backlog item when hitting "New Linked Work item...". I want to include a new field "SprintTeam" that I have added to the Microsoft Visual Studio Scrum 1.0 template.

    Can someone point me in the right direction?

  • Hi,

    I think you cannot customize the fields that are copied. There are a few fields that are copied, only three core fields like AreaID, IterationID and AssignedTo are copied to the new linked work item. The fields which will be copied are defined by hard-code, which is by design.

    I think this does make sense in some scenarios, I would suggest you to report this issue on our Connect Portal:
