Note: WIT is Work Item Template

In VS 2008, under Tools, you will see Process Editor. Navigate to Process Editor à Work Item Types.

To open and view an existing WIT, select Open WIT from Server, and select a TFS project, and then a specific work item type, such as “Helpdesk Ticket” below.

This will open the WIT in the GUI mode. You can visually edit the WIT here.

To export the WIT to an XML file and edit, select Export WIT. You will later use Import WIT to import the edited XML fle back to TFS.
