Using Categories to Support Flexible Reports and Increase Integration Across Team Projects

Using Categories to Support Flexible Reports and Increase Integration Across Team Projects

Visual Studio 2010

You can generate flexible reports and support increased integration across team projects by creating categories that identify groups of similar work item types. By using categories, you can manage multiple types of work items as a group.

Reports that are generated from work item queries can use the In Group operator to find work items based on their category group. You can add or remove different work item types from a category as team project processes change, but the reports remain valid because the category name remains constant.

Names for work item types can vary, and they depend on locale. When you assign a category to work item types, different applications can easily access all work item types in the category or accept the default work item type.
