The "Start Tracking" button and "Time" tab are not displaying in TFS when I open a work item directly. Why are they only displaying on the work item form when I open a work item from a direct link?
We add the "Start Tracking" button and "Time" tab using legacy extensions, as adding them using recommendations by the Microsoft way is requiring a lot of process template modifications.
Unfortunately, there is no solution with Legacy Extensions; switching to the recommended Microsoft way can solve this issue.
