    How can write a Custom Grid query to include only user stories that have a particular milestone or release associated. Our features span multiple releases so I want a way to see only those user stories that are scheduled for a release.

    To clarify - are you looking to see stories whose features are associated with a given release or milestone OR are you looking to show features whose stories are part of a release or milestone?

    Let me give you an example, lets say I have Feature foo that has story1 with release r1 and story 2 with release r2. I want to see a custom grid result where I want to see all Features that have user stories targeted for r1. Feature foo should be displayed with only story1 in this case.

    Simply set your custom list to view features and then put in the following query (but with the appropriately named release:  (UserStories.Release.Name = "CY2016 Q2").  This will give you all the features that have stories that are part of release 'CY2016 Q2'. Hope this helps

    @Namrata Dubey, using this query you'll get every feature that has a user story in the specified release. If feature FOO has one story in R1 and one story in R2 and you condition a query to return features with user stories in R1 then feature FOO meets the filter criteria. Remember, in this scenario you're filtering out features, not stories. A different approach might be to query user stories instead of features (Release.Name = "R1"), and include the Feature column in the query results, ordered by Feature. You may have duplicates if a feature has two stories in R1 but it shouldn't be difficult to see them, and you can always export your custom list to CSV and de-dupe in Excel. By the way, @Ken LaFrance is my boss so in no way should this be construed as contradicting his answer ;-)
