At times, you need to track updates on work items where you are not assigned but are related to the work you're doing. By following a work item:

  • You get updates via email notifications about the updated on the work items.
  • You can even reply to the emails, which will then add your comments against that work item.

Following a work item is a great way to stay up-to-date with its updates and comments. When you follow a work item, you see its updates in the Activity Stream and receive instant email notifications.

Follow a Work item

Assignees of a task or app item and the State Manager/Project Manager automatically follow that task or app item. To begin following a work item:

  • Click on Follow link on the panel of the task/app item.
  • Alternatively, go to the task or app item's actions menu and click Follow.
