Projects → Discussions
You can use the Discussions tab to participate in discussions related to a particular item. The Discussions tab is used to help improve collaboration and communication among team members as they work together to finish any item to which they have been assigned. The Discussions tab is a type of log view. Other types of log views that are included include the Issues tab, the Risks tab, and the Documents tab. The addition of custom log views is supported. Information in a log view is presented in a list format. You can allow a log view entry to be converted into a new work item or item.
Select an item and open the Discussions tab. Add a new discussion about that item.
You can convert a discussion to a different log type, such as to an issue, a risk, or a change log. When you convert one log type into another, only information details that are contained in both log types will be preserved after the conversion. Information details that exist in the original log view but do not exist in the new log view will not be available after the conversion.
You can convert a discussion into a work item. The work item can then be assigned to a resource and can be tracked alongside tasks and other activities associated with an item.
You can convert a discussion into an item.
