View Work Item Details from Pending Changes Window (Team Explorer Everywhere)

When you check in files to Team Foundation version control, you can optionally associate a work item with the changeset. To do so, you might have to view the details of the work item to determine if it is applicable.

Required Permissions

To perform these procedures, you must have the Check in or the Check out permissions set to Allow. For more information, see the following topic on the Microsoft Web site: Team Foundation Server Permissions.
