  • You can use the history of a work item to find the information you are after in case you once have set the iteration path of the story to the iteration it started in.

    Another approach is to find use one of the Date fields (such as Activated Date), and then find the iteration that included that date.

    The last approach is to look at the child tasks and find the earliest task to find the start sprint.

    A best practice btw is to not let a User Story span multiple sprints. The best practice is to use Features which can span sprints, and then break it down into Stories that are scoped to a single sprint.
