Ranking work items by using menu options

You can use menu options from the Actions column to rank work items or remove rank from work items.


  1. In the Actions column, select the work item or work items to edit.
  2. Hover the mouse pointer over the Actions column of the work item, and click the down arrow.
  3. From the menu, click one of these actions:
    • Remove > Rank: Removes the rank that is associated with the selected work item or work items.
    • Remove > Rank Below: Removes the rank of all items below selected item.
    • Apply Rank Above: Applies a rank to all work items above the selected item.

    Menu options for ranking work items and removing rank from work items.

    Note: In a tree view, when you click Apply Rank Above or Remove Rank Below, the action only affects the rank of siblings of the selected work item. If the selected element is a top-level work item, clicking Apply Rank Above or Remove Rank Below only affects the rank of other top-level work items.
  4. Click Save.
    Note: Apply Rank Above and Remove Rank Below are disabled if more than one work item is selected.
