    Hello,
    We've started using teampulse last month, so we were and we sill aren't quite sure about how we want to use every relationship type, so we started with lots of "related" and now we decided to change some to "affected by/affects".

    So I have to:
    1) go to every story
    2) check if there are any links to change
    3) get the related story code or name
    4) create a new relationship with the other type of relationship
    5) search and delete the first one. 

    And I'm always afraid thinking I could let a duplicated relation or worse, delete one I have not created again (If I think I already did).

    I don't know if we will keep the same use for relations forever, so It would be great if I could just go and change a relation type easier. That would work great too for the times when you choose the wrong relation and have to change it.

    It would be awesome too if someone could share their use of the relationships.

    Thanks!

    Hi Raquel,

    I am really glad you started using TeamPulse.
    For more information on relationship types usage I may suggest you this part of the TeamPulse online help:
    http://www.telerik.com/agile-project-management-tools/support-resources/documentation/user-guide/features/creating-relationships-in-teampulse.aspx
    Also if I understand correctly you need an easier way to change the relationship types, mostly between stories? So if you have selected "affected by" but afterwards decide that "child" one is better, you want to switch easier by just selecting the other type of relationship?

    And to answer your last question - here is an example of how we are using this functionality for stories relationship. When we have one let's call it "epic story" which has few more sub-stories, then we create parent -> child relationship between these stories. The epic one is parent to all other sub-stories. Also note that when some story is marked as parent to another, then when opened the second story it is automatically set as "child" of the first one.

    Hope that the information above is helpful for you and if you need more details, please do not hesitate to contact us again.

    Kind regards,

    Yes, you got it right, I want to be able to change the type of relationship of an already created relation.

    Between stories, because right now I think it is the only place where TeamPulse allows diferent relationship types, but it should be the same anywhere there is a relationship type.

    Hello Raquel,

    I have just created a new feature request in our internal TeamPulse Feedback Portal and put a vote for you.
    When hopefully this feature request becomes more popular we will see it implemented in TeamPulse.
    Thank you again for providing us feedback - it is highly appreciated.
