Creating New Work Item Queries

You use searches, or queries, to locate work items based on the information in the work item forms. A simple query might search for work items that contain a specific value in one part of the form, such as all work items assigned to you. More complex queries can search for several values on the form. You create queries by using clauses to refine your query results.

In Team Foundation work item tracking, a query that is specifically for work items is called a work item query and is identified by the file extension .wiq.
