Edit fields for existing work items


Mark Krasovich (51372) | asked Apr 13 '10, 4:13 p.m.
Is it possible to edit fields, or add fields, to work items and have those fields available to fill out on previously existing work items? E.G. I add a field to "task" called foo, and while that field is visible and editable in new tasks, it is grayed out in already existing tasks.

Thanks

Mark

Hi Mark,

the new attributes are initially not available at already created work items.
To add them create a query that shows the work item type. Select all work items you want the fields to be added. Hover over the type icon. Then right click and select "Synchronize Attributes".
