Can PBI Board items be customized in any way?


  • We have modified our process template to allow both BUG and PBI to show on the product backlog board. From the defaults, there is no visual clue as to which is which. For example, in the image below you will see two items in the ACTIVE column. One of them is a bug, the other is a PBI.

    We would like to distinguish these some how, either by shape, color, or text ( short of remembering to type funny title prefixes ourselves). Is there a mechanism for this?

  • Hi,

    Since we haven't heard from you for a long time

    It was the weekend.

    I mark useful reply as answer.

    Just as long as we are clear that it is you that thinks this is an answer. I thought it was useful.

    As for myself, I think the answer is "No, You cannot customer PBI board items directly although there is at least one third-party system that provides some service to this end."

    You could then go on to shill the next version by adding "You might want to check out the TFS 2013 preview here. It has many enhancements in this area already and may fit your needs".

    That would be an answer.
