Ability to constrain linked work items based on rules/conditions
For example, I want to prevent the creation of Sprint Tasks before a Product Backlog Item is ready for development, assigned to a Sprint, contains a description, and is prioritized.
This is on our backlog for consideration.
Thanks for the feedback. Looks like there are two ideas here: the first being around having rules/conditions on links, and the second around security/permissions for specific fields. The latter was suggested by John Ames here: http://visualstudio.uservoice.com/forums/121579-visual-studio/suggestions/2088177-add-ability-to-hide-mask-fields-in-a-work-item-bas. I'm going to convert this idea to reflect the rules/conditions on links so that we have a better idea of what people are voting on. If you voted for this idea on the basis of the field-level permissions, please take a moment to move your votes over to John Ames' idea. Thanks!
