How to: Send Work Items by E-Mail (Team System Web Access)

You can use Team System Web Access to send work items by e-mail to recipients that you specify. You can send either an individual work item or a set of work items. You can also use the text editor to compose a message.

E-mail alerts are configured during Team System Web Access installation or specified in the web.config file. For more information, see How to: Configure SMTP Server and E-mail Notification Settings in the Services Web.Config File.

Required Permissions

To perform these procedures, you must be a member of the Readers group or have the View work items in this node permission set to Allow. For more information, see Team Foundation Server Permissions.
