User Actions → Work Items
A work item is anything that is used to build and track work during any phase of a product's lifecycle, including high-level features (epics), a more detailed work item (such as a story and its individual tasks), issues raised by customers or members of your test team (defects), and issues that prevent team members from completing their assignments (impediments).
You can add a work item to a backlog.
A work item, once created, can be converted to another work item (if that becomes necessary).
You can delete a work item from a backlog.
You can edit the details of any work item to which you have access or details which cannot be edited directly in the backlog itself. Click the name of the work item directly in the backlog to open its summary details.
You can edit the details of any work item directly in a backlog.
You can move a work item from one backlog into another. When backlogs are side-by-side in the same view, you can select a work item in one backlog and drag it into the other.
|New backlog. This will drop the work item into the new backlog. The backlog will refresh and the work item will appear in the new backlog (and disappear from the old backlog).|
|Re-rank. This will drop the work item into the selected location; the backlog will refresh and the work items will be in the new order.|
|Re-parent. This will drop the work item into the selected location; the backlog will refresh and the work items will be in the new order.|
|New phase. This will drop the work item into a new phase in a storyboard (or card wall). The storyboard will refresh and the work item will be moved to the new phase.|
|Invalid. You cannot drag-and-drop a work item into a backlog when this icon appears.|
There are two ways to view the details of a work item. Select the name of the work item in a backlog, right-click, and select Summary. Or just click the name of the work item in the backlog.
