Automating aspects of creating iterations


jim herron (814327) | asked Apr 03 '09, 11:16 a.m.
Is there any way to automate some aspects of creating iterations? I am working with a site that wants 2 week iterations, normally broken into standard sub-iterations.

They would like to provide a starting date and have the end date computed, standard sub-iterations created , and sub-iteration dates computed. They can change dates for any iteration that does not follow the norm, but would benefit tremendously from some automated defaults

Creating iterations appears to be a very manually intensive effort with lots of room for errors, and there is no mechanism to delete an iteration created in the wrong place.

There's nothing like this currently available. If you choose to file an
enhancement request for this, please include more details about exactly
how you envision this working. Specifically, how would the tool know that
you want the end date to fall 2 weeks after the start date?
