planning with dependency trees?


John Kohl (1461815) | asked Jul 01 '09, 8:58 a.m.
We've got the ability to show parent/child relationships in a tree-view
in an iteration or release plan.
Is there a similar way to view dependencies (depends on/blocks)?

this is currently not possible in plans. However, you can always show
these relationships in the work item explorer for query results (see

"Queries for links, work item explorer relationship view")

Yeah, I find the work item relationship displays a bit clunky to use,
and most of the time when I'm doing planning I want to be in a plan, not
a work item query result pane.

So I filed this as enhancement 86965.
(https://jazz.net/jazz/web/projects/Rational%20Team%20Concert#action=com.ibm.team.workitem.viewWorkItem&id=86965)

On a related note, while viewing results in a work item query result, is
there an "expand all" capability to open up the tree of related items?

I agree, thank you!

No, to my knowledge this is currently not possible.

OK, so that's now enhancement request 87019:
