Standard RTC work item field for Performance Impact?

Michael Taylor (8865561) | asked Sep 09 '13, 9:26 p.m.

Our project documents the impact or a defect on batch and screen perfomance impact for each defect.  Is there a standard RTC field that is intended for this purpose? 

We know how to add a custom field but we want to use RTC as close to out of the box as possible for ease of setup and maintenance.

I propose two ways. Other may have another options.

  1. Create a tag for performance impacts (say 'impact-1', 'impact-2'). These values are entered in the tag fields.
    Each developer can enter correct value by hitting the first several characters to find existing tags.
  2. Create a work item template. Each developer describes performance impact in the text area.
#1 is good because it allows query. Cautions are that tag name can be entered arbitrary. Our project sometimes use this field to enter keywords like your 'impact'.

#2 is good because it provides consistency in defect submit. You will see the menu "Create from Template.." in the Work Items menu.

Again other may have better suggestions.
