make sure "planned for" and "filed against" are compatible

Bernd van Oostrum (21725269) | asked Feb 15 '18, 11:51 a.m.

How can I ensure that a workitem's "planned for"-attirbute contains a value that corresponds with the selected "filed against"-attribute given that I have multiple teams working on dedicated timelines.

Currently, it is possible to assign a combination of "filed against"-values and "planned for"-value that do not correspond (for instance a planned for value from a different timeline than indicated in the filed against field)

Best regards,

Have you considered writing a customized validator?

 Hi Donald,

Not really...
I think it should be impossible to select an invalid combination of "filed against" and "planned for" values out of the box...

RTC will flag an invalid combination of filed-against and planned-for as warning when you view that work item in the GUI.   The reason RTC cannot make it impossible is that this would make it impossible to reassign a category to a team area in a different timeline.
