As a follow-up from our May 5, Rally Office Hours session, we’d like to share some highlights in addition to the questions that were asked, along with their respective answers. We briefly demo a helpful Rally Tip each week and call it the Learning Corner. This week, Heather showed how to use the Defect Trend Chart. A recording is available below, comment on this blog with other features you would like to see! 

This week’s Learning Corner: Defect Trend Chart

Thank you to all who joined us live. We appreciate your feedback and participation in the last session and are looking forward to our next one. If you were not able to attend, there is always an opportunity to ask questions here on the Rally Community discussion board and we'll do our best to answer. 

Join us every Thursday, at 12 PM ET (register for upcoming sessions). We look forward to connecting with you!

May 5, Session Recap

Q: Can you use Custom List 2.0 to show Tasks?

A: Custom List 2.0 is based on Work Views code. Work Views do not include Tasks at this time and hence this is a RFE (Request For Enhancement). Product Management is already aware of this request. One reason why Tasks were excluded from Work Views and by extension from Custom List 2.0 is because that page intends to be a cross-team page providing joint views to multiple teams. Tasks, however, are considered private to each team and that's why weren't included in that page. As mentioned by Stephanie above, you can use Custom List with Deep Export to expand and export from portfolio items all the way down including to Tasks.

Q: I am trying to get a list of stories that the release is different than the parent features release.  I use this query but it does not seem to work.    (Release.name != Parent.release.name)    I have also tried (release != parent.release)  any suggestions?  I know I can see this in the release tracking as an alert item but I was looking for a list. Don't want to side track back to my original question  This query will find problem issues as well.  Instead of comparing the names you can compare the release state so if the parent state is not active and the US release name is it will flag it.   ((Feature.release.state != "Active")  and (release.state = "Active"))

A: Exactly! you can't make it dynamic to lookup for all values, but you can make it static for a single value. Very true.

Q: General discussion on archiving and deleting Tags, both from the Administration pages and using the Tag Management app.

A: Workspace and Subscription Administrators can administer tags. They can go to the workspace setup page, then click Tags on the left side, they'll get the list of tags, they can either archive and/or permanently delete tags.

Additionally, other users (project admins and others) can use this app: https://github.com/RallyTechServices/tag-management to manage tags.
