Where is there documentation on managing templates?
Who can see them?
Who can create them?
After created, where can we find them/tweak them?

There is some basic information on the Information Center about work item templates:

The work item templates are stored in the project area process (Process Configuration -> Project Configuration -> Configuration Data -> Work Items -> Templates).

Anyone who is apart of the project area (or can see the project area based on access control) should be able to see the work item templates.

Once they are created, I don't believe they can be edited.

 Can you delete a template after it has been created?

sam detweiler commented Nov 12 '13, 11:33 a.m.

you have to do that from the Process Configuration for the project, delete, there is no 'update'.. you can replace the template with another version, but I think u need to delete the prior one first.

Project Configuration -> Configuration Data -> Workitems ->Templates
