Set value when saving a work item type (User Story)

Michael Oyebola (31114) | asked May 31 '16, 12:22 p.m.
I will like to set a value for specific attributes [story point= 0pts] and [planned For= Trash] for my user stories when the state is moved to invalid. I have tried using the precondition behavior but that still doesn't give me the result I am looking for.

A precondition can't give you that, because a precondition runs before (pre...) the save. It also is a condition which pretty much says that it guards the save and can prevent it.

You want a follow up action aka a participant.
