Hi All,

 I am able to see "Modify the work item's Type involving a workflow reset" in Team area permissions of RTC 4.0.1 and RTC4.0.5

 What this means and when it is validated.

I would assume that this is when you change the type of a work item and the current state is not available on the new type, which would cause the work item to transition to new.Never realized we have that!

I did a quick test and what it looks like is ...

If I do not have this permission, then the work item types that I see in the Type dropdown are ONLY those that have the same workflow defined as the work item type it is now.  So for example, for me, defect & task have different workflows, so within a Defect, "Task" is not in the Type dropdown.  I have a couple work item types that use the same workflow, and so when I have one of those up, the Type dropdown shows both the type it is now (Schedule) and the only other type that has the same Workflow (Dependency).
