Have a project setup in VSTS with the scrum template and one of my team has added several work items. We have several different teams setup and Ive added separate sets of iterations, 1 set per team. My questions as Im going through the docs are
- What is the difference between "work items" and "backlogs"
- If I see the list of work items when I select that menu, how can move things from work items to one of the backlogs for a team?
- I've read somewhere that the "work items" menu refer to "portfolio backlog" which is at one level higher so to speak, whereas the backlogs are "product backlogs". Does this sound right?
I think what has happened, is that someone has gone in before I created the teams and added work items, so they exist at the team-project level. Now, I want to have these at the team level.
My team project is setup like this:
vsts root |___team 1 |__sprint 1 |__sprint 2 |__sprint 3 |___team 2 |__sprint 1 |__sprint 2 |__sprint 3
Each team also has an associated area. So there doesn't seem to be a "direct" way to move work items at the root level pro team project level, to a team backlog. I have to first reassign the iteration of a work item at the root, to an iteration I have defined, THEN I can move it into a backlog for the team.
