How do you create extra fields in the Change Explorer view?

To create build release notes, we compare build snap shots and save it to the change log to list out all the work items.

However the current fields displayed in the Change Explorer are only work owner, work item number and summary.
Is there any way to add extra build labels such as Type, Status, Workstream?

We could then pass on these label identifiers to Hudson to create the Release notes and save a lot of time in traceability.

Thanks for any help you can provide!

Hi Carmen, I don't think there's any way to do that currently.  It's a reasonable thing to want to do though, so please file an enhancement request.

Note that the generateChangeLog Ant task (in the Build System Toolkit) allows you to automate the change log generation.  However, the output format currently has the same restrictions as the manual approach.

Hi Nick,

Thanks very much for the quick feedback. I have raised an enhancement request with ID: 284589.

I guess we will just have to add in the extra information manually as an interim solution.
