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.
As explained in this blog post (http://blogs.msdn.com/b/visualstudioalm/archive/2015/10/08/how-we-use-user-voice-to-make-a-better-product.aspx), we had updated the status of this suggestion to “Under Review” to let you know we are tracking it on our backlog. To better indicate which one we are actively working on or which ones are on our 6-month plan, we introduced the states “Started” and “Planned”. The goal is to give an update on in progress suggestions at least every 3 months. This suggestion is still on our backlog, but they are not part of the 6-month plan.
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!
