Share Work Item (Team Explorer Everywhere)

Visual Studio 2010

With Team Explorer Everywhere, you can use any e-mail client to compose a message, and you can build a hyperlink to a work item and post the hyperlink on a Web page or send in an e-mail message. You can use another Team Foundation client, such as Team Web Access or Team Explorer, to send the details of one or more bugs, tasks, or other types of work item in an e-mail message. For more information, see Share Work Items.

Required Permissions

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

To build a link that opens a work item

  1. Display a query results list.

    For more information, see Finding Bugs, Tasks, and Other Work Items (Team Explorer Everywhere).

  2. Right-click the work item to which you want to build a link, and then click Copy Work Item URL to Clipboard.

    A work item URL is copied to the Clipboard. This URL will appear as http:// ServerName: Port/Path/Collection/WorkItemTracking/WorkItem.aspx?artifactMoniker=WorkItemNumber. An example would be: http://tfsxp-2010rc:8080/tfs/DefaultCollection/WorkItemTracking/WorkItem.aspx?artifactMoniker=7

  3. Paste the link into an e-mail message, or encode it on a Web page or a software application form.

    Important noteImportant

    To access work items by using this kind of link, team members must have read access to the work item database as specified in the "Required Permissions" section previously in this topic.
