Display relations in the work package list

Especially when you manage releases or work on complex features it is essential to keep track of the relations between work packages.

The Enterprise Edition allows you to display relations between work packages right in the work package list.

In order to display relations in the work package list, first make sure that you have an activated Enterprise Edition.

Next, navigate to a project’s work package list.

On the work package list click on the plus icon on the right side to open the column overview (1), search for the relation type you want to add (2) (you can get an overview of the available relations in the work package relations list) and select the appropriate relation type (3). Confirm by clicking on the Apply button.

Add relations column

The relations column (e.g. blocked by) is then added as a column to the work package list (4). If there is a relation of the specific relation type between one of the work packages a number is shown which displays the number of work packages which have a relation of the specified type (5).
(To learn more about how to add relations for a work package take a look at work package relations guide.)
Right next to the displayed number is a little arrow which allows you to display the work packages which have a relationship of the displayed type.

Relations column added

You can also display multiple relation columns and save the configured work package list as a filter. This can be used to e.g. create an overview of the feature list.
