Project Description
MultiChildWorkItem provides ability to link multiple workItems. No longer we need to create as many workitems as we need and link it manually. This TFS add in helps you to create linked workitem with a few clicks.



It is often required to create linked workitems in TFS. Though TFS2010 provides OOB features for this activity. It requires creation of WorkItems and manually linking these WorkItems.

Whenever a task Development is created, a set of child Task like Coding, Peer review, Code Review and testing need to be created.
