Custom Date Format on Work Item in Web Access is not dsplayed, TFS 2012.2


  • We have a custom Scrum template that we've added a DateTime field to, and set it to display only the date (MM/dd/yyyy).  This work correctly when viewing the workitem in Visual Studio, but in web access, it always displays the date and time, for example, 7/1/2013 12:00:00 AM.

    Is there a way to force web access to honor the field custom format?

  • Hi RJRapson,

    Thanks for your post!

    Yes, I can repro what you said.

    Based on my understanding, if you want to custom the work item field, you need to write web access work item custom control.
