We use TFS at my workplace to manage our source code and track development.
Whenever we have a bug or work to do, we always have to do the following two tasks as a minimum:
- Test the work, or decide whether testing is needed.
- Update the release notes for the current release, or decide whether it needs a specific entry.
Other tasks are specific to the work being done, but I find myself constantly typing "Testing" and "Release notes" when adding new work items.
Is there a way to get TFS to automatically add these two tasks whenever a new bug or work item is created? In the rare case these tasks are not required, they can simply be marked as done or removed for that work item, so I'm not concerned about the impact in making this automatic.
I have had a look around and it looks like I might be able to create a PowerShell script to add the tasks to any work items that are missing them, which may be the way to go.
