Two team members working on the same WI

Yael K (471230) | asked Sep 14 '16, 8:25 a.m.
Hi all,

How can two team members work on the same WI, and report their "spent time" separately?
Is there any solution without duplicating the WI and having each team member own a separate WI?

Just for interest's sake, why don't you want to have each team member have a separate work item for their part of the work?   You can create one as a child of the other, since it is good practice to have a single "primary owner" of the work, who makes sure everything needed for that work item gets done.

I guess Time Tracking should help you :

Each user could add his own entry against different time codes.  This will accumulate as the total time spent against the work item.

In Short, here is what you would do :
1.  Add a "Non-Attribute" based presentation for "Time Sheet Table" to your work item type
2.  Define Time Codes
    Open Project Area in Eclipse Client > Project Configuration > Configuration Data > Planning > Time Tracking > Timecode section
3.  Now Users can add "Time Sheet Entry" to record their times

This will be cumulatively (against various entries from different users and different codes) considered against Time Spent for the work item.

Hope this helps.

Hello Dinesh,

Thanks for the quick response.
We aware of the "time sheet" capabilities.
Here we need something different.
We need to show the progress bar each person at the RTC plan.
So, we will to see the progress of two people.

Currently, a plan looks for "time spent" for a specific owner.

Do you have other idea?
We do not want to duplicate the WI. Otherwise it will be difficult to manage it.
