I almost forget of this one! one of the big additions to the CTP for Visual Studio Update 2 Team Foundation Server 2012 is the ability to work with tags in our capabilities. The official definition is basically the following:.
Work Item Tagging -”New work item tags provide categorization and filtering of items work.” “Easily add tags to items and then filter by them in both backlog and work item query views in Team Web Access.”
Now, if we take it to reality what we have is a new feature within the scope editor which allows us to define TAGs associated with them. Suppose we have the following Product Backlog
When we edit a WorkItem we will see in the upper section the option to add tags
The interesting thing about this approach is that once we have defined the tags to a workItem, it creates a dictionary with them to suggest it in subsequent editions.
Once we have defined the Tags to our capabilities, we see them as part of the result of a WorkItem Query.
On it can apply a filter by Tags, we see initially where the amount of scope that is associated with a Tag and when we add the tags, dynamically query goes through filter.
I do not think that I put to update the amount of defect that I have assets at this time with their corresponding tags, but I will surely begin to use with the new WIs that creating.
