Watch workitem based on assigned to, instead of observers

Mar 29, 2010 at 7:29 PM

Is there a way to automatically set the observer of a specif work item to be the person that the work item is assigned to, or use the assigned to field to send the notification?

Maybe you missed the fact, that this feature is already integrated within Visual Studio:


Team --> Project Alerts --> My work items are changed by others

Or do I understand you wrong?

Btw. if you really want to do it with the help of "TFS WorkItem Watcher" you can just change the setting in .config file to:


    <ObserversFieldName>Assigned To</ObserversFieldName>


This should do it.
