Adding Static Text to a workitem

Doug Weissman (642) | asked Nov 14 '08, 3:27 p.m.
Is it possible to add static text to a workitem.

Example 1: I have a custom workitem that has a number of fields that I would like to display some static text describing the type of data that you need to populate in the field.

Example 2: would like to display text that says "All request must have management approval. Your manager will be contacted"

Example 3: would like to display text that says "This system is open to a public audience. Please do not include any confidential martial in this workitem. "

Hi Doug
This is currently not possible using built-in functionality. You could contribute a presentation to the editor presentations extension point which displays a label with a configurable text (contributing editor presentations is described on the wiki:; or you can also file an enhancement request on
