List of changesets and updating work items


Within these tabs is a “Links” tab: Now, click this “Links” tab, to see any changesets (or test results, or other work items) that have already been associated with this work item: From here, you can click “Add” and choose Changeset from the Link type dropdown list.

Enter the number of the changeset and a comment, and voila.

Your source code changes will be checked in and the associated work items will be updated.


The TFS Productivity Tools project was designed to provide TFS administrators with helper tools when doing Source Control or Work Item Tracking tasks.For running these extensions the installation of Visual Studio Professional is required. This package was written as part of a job at Experis.Linking a changeset to one or more work items after the initial check-in is really easy, although it's not too intuitive.The easiest way that I’ve found to accomplish this is to open your bug or work item in TFS and scan about a third of the way down the page to a group of tabs.

Click the pointing hand button to browse work items. By default, the selected work items will be marked Completed after check in, and the Change Set Comment will be added to the Associated Commits section of the work items.Click the checkbox next to the work item(s) you wish to associate with the Check in. Click the green checkmark button if you do not want the work item(s) marked Completed. Uncheck the checkboxes in the Add Comment column if you do not want the Change Set Comment added to the work item.
