A common question we get asked is how to add new statuses to work items in TeamPulse. While the process is not difficult, it is also not immediately obvious and a bit of complexity is added if your project is syncing with TFS. To help people accomplish this task, we have added a how-to article in the TeamPulse documentation entitled “How to: Add a Custom State”. This article will walk you through the process of adding a status to a work item in TeamPulse and adding a new state to a work item type definition in TFS. If after reading this article you still have some questions, we are always available in the forums or by opening a new support ticket.
The new "How To" section will be home to more step-by-step articles in the future. The intention of these walkthroughs is to help guide users through common scenarios or to provide answers to questions we frequently get asked in the through the support channels. We hope these articles will be valuable and as always we look forward to your feedback! Keep an eye on this blog for new ‘how-to’ announcements.
