In order to provide the same great functionality in our quick detail panel (QDP) as well as provide a more performant editor, we have released a new full detail panel (FDP) experience!



Template Migration


Single field rich text templates that were available in EDP will not be migrated automatically to the multi-field work item templates in QDP/FDP. There is an app available in the app catalog to assist with this transition, you can read more here:

Switching Between Full Screen and Split Screen

FDP will be replacing the old full screen editor that was available on user stories, defects, tasks, portfolio items, risks, investments, defect suites, test cases, test sets, test folders, test case runs, iterations, releases and milestones. To switch between the full screen and split screen view, you can use the default view toggle at the top of the editor.



Hide/Show Fields

You can choose which fields to hide or show in QDP and FDP using the Field Selector at the top.



Drag And Drop Field Reordering

Hovering over the left of field name will reveal a handle that you can use to drag and drop fields to change their display order.



When moving a field, look for the horizontal gray bar to ensure you're dropping it in the location you want to move it to.



At Mentions

In any rich text field including Discussion and Description, there is an @ button which will allow you to select a user to mention, and that user will receive an email notifying them.



Connections Including Pull Requests

While you could only view changesets in EDP, QDP and FDP now show both changesets and pull requests in the Connections collection. Click on the Connections (globe) icon.



Work Item Templates

Work item templates allow you to create templates for multiple fields at the same time, and you can include child tasks on a story or child stories on a parent story/feature. Use the Templates button at the top of QDP/FDP to access the template modal.



Copy Formatted ID

To use the Copy Formatted ID, hover just to the right of the formatted ID in QDP so the copy boxes appear, then click on the icon to see the copy options.



Risks Collection

You can see which risks are associated with a user story or portfolio item with the risk collection available on QDP and FDP.
