Difference between Code Review Response and Code Item

Jul 27, 2010 at 7:22 PM

I see two different Work Item types in the download. I imported the Code Review Response and everything is working as expected.

Why would I need the Code Item type?

From the source I have, it appears they are identical apart from the WORKITEMTYPE name.

Will need JB to answer this. Future plans maybe?

I think the explanation is in the ReadMe.txt file in the installation package;

"With a change in product positioning the name of the TeamReview work item type has changed...."

The file goes on to explain that if you have previously used Team Review, and have previously used the Code Review Response work item type, you should continue to use it. But if you are new to Team Review, only install the Code Item Work Item Type.

So I have concluded that the Code Item Work Item Type is the new, preferred type.
