I wondered the same thing. I see a "Start/Stop Working" actions on work items, but not sure what they do - other than assign the WI to the current user if not already assigned. They do enforce a user only works on a single WI at a time. But I can't see a histroy of who worked on it, nor how long. Possibly a place holder for future enhancement?

Hi Harry,


The Start/Stop Working actions are mainly used to set the current work
context. SCM i.e. uses this to associated the changes to the correct
work item, or to resume/suspend changes if the current work item changes.

There is public API available to listen to such events, which may be
interesting to other components as well.

Cheers,
Tobias
