Assign a Work Item to a Team Member (Team Explorer Everywhere)
You can assign a work item to a person when you need that person to supply information or do work that helps complete the work item.
The following guidance is based on the work item transitions available in the bug work item for Microsoft Solutions Framework (MSF) for Agile Software Development v5.0, one of the process guidance templates that are included with Team Foundation. If your project uses a different methodology, the work item states might be different.
To assign a work item by using Team Explorer or Team Web Access
View the results of a work item query that contains the work item that you want to modify.
Double-click the work item that you want to assign to a team member.
In the Assigned to list, click the name of the team member to whom you want to assign the work item.
For each work item type, the available fields and their layout can vary.
(Optional) In Description, type any information that helps the team member complete the work.
On the File menu, click Save or press CTRL+S.
