Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

So I'm installing TFS for our developers to use, and I'm supposed to be the expert on this TFS thing since I'm the one that suggested we get it, but I don't know the answers to some of their questions, Maybe someone on here can tell me this one:

1) What does Triage mean in relation to Team foundation server? It has the following options:

  1. Info Received
  2. More Info
  3. Pending
  4. Triaged

2) What do each of the options mean?

Site is: epicclanwars.com (not that it matters that much)

It's intended to identify that those other items have not been set. Some organizations may have a person responsible for setting priority, classification, etc... Triaged would indicate to a developer that those items have been properly evaluated.

I'm not a TFS expert, but I would assume, in this context, that "triaged" means much the same as it does in a medical sense: the patient/problem has been classified, prioritized, and queued.

How do the options pertain to its priority, classification, or queue? Especially since there are already fields called Priority, Classification, and Importance. –  Jrud Sep 22 '10 at 14:01

@Dan: Can you please re-post that as an answer instead of a comment so I can give you the credit? –  Jrud Sep 22 '10 at 15:06
