Disappearing Items


Jennifer Schachter (1121) | asked Nov 03 '08, 6:03 p.m.
When planning for a new iteration (Sprint N) with RTC I stumbled upon a problem. During the containment discussion we decided to move out a Task and so I chose "Plan For --> Sprint n+1" from the context menu. I later noticed that there is no Sprint N+1 backlog, nor was the item in the any other backlog that I could find! It seemed to have vanished without any warnings or errors.

I was able to restore the Task by finding it in my local history and moving it back to the Release, but I am not sure why it disappeared in the first place. Any idea?

Thanks in advance!

You have to understand an iteration plan as a query with a rich

presentation. To 'find' your task (sprint n+1) you could have created a
plan for that sprint. The plan captures all work items that are
(already) planned for that sprint.
