Moving work items from one plan to another


Roderick Thomas (661179) | asked Jan 13 '11, 11:53 a.m.
We have a number of work items that we would like to move to another plan in a different release.

I'm finding there is NO easy way to do this, which doesn't seem right. For instance, if I right click on a Use Case, the "Plan For" option only includes iterations from the current timeline.

However, if I right click on a Task, I get an option for "Continue Work In", which shows the next release as an option.

So because the tasks are children of the use case, I'm manually having to select all the Tasks and move those with the "Continue Work In" and then manually open the use cases and change the Planned For manually.

This can't be right. Can someone advise how to do this correctly?

If I right-click on a work item, one of my options is "Continue Work In." One of my co-workers doesn't have this option. I thought this might be an option under Process Configuration, but I didn't see it. Any thoughts on why one of use does not have this option?

You should only use "continue work in" when you have already done some
work on a work item in the current iteration, and want to do additional
work on that work item in a later iteration (the "continue" operation
creates another work item for the work already performed).

I have also had problems in RTC-2.0 with the "Plan For" pick list being
incomplete ... I haven't encountered this yet in RTC-3.0, so I'm hoping
that issue has been fixed (but maybe I've just been lucky :-). Did you
have this problem in 2.0 or 3.0 ? As a workaround, you can use another
display, such as the approach suggested by Christophe.

Cheers,
Geoff

Open your 2 Plans.
Then, using Eclipse functionality, left-click the top of the window of 1 Plan and drag it to extreme right-side of your screen - you should now have the 2 Plans windows visible at the same time, 1 next to the other.
Now you can just drag-and-drop 1 or n Work Items from Plan 1 window to Plan 2 window.
