RTC enhancement/review best practice question


Austin Tyler (611) | asked Mar 24 '11, 9:50 a.m.
Hi,

I am new to RTC and I wanted to see if I could get some opinions on best practice for handling enhancements that come back after a reviewed. Here is my question:

A developer works on the enhancement and then submits it for review. At this point the developer has completed their work and closed their enhancement work item. A parent work item which contains the enhancement is submitted for review. Post review there is a determination to modify the enhancement.

Should the modification be a modify to the original enhancement work item or should it be a new work item attached to the review as a link?

Thanks,
Austin

The short answer is "both approaches are reasonable".
In the former case, there are fewer work items floating around your system.
In the latter case, you have a record of how much work/time went into
the original work, vs. the work/time that went into the modification.

So it really depends which works better for you.

Cheers,
Geoff

Hi Geoff,

I like how you point out the ability to capture the modification time by the number of enhancements added to the review. I think I can make this work.

Thanks for the reply,
Austin
