Hi Jasmine,

This could be used when a user gets ill for instance. This is an option for a substitute to activate (or Adopt) the substitution from his end. If he activates the substitution he will only see the workitems of the user he substitutes. If the substitution is activated by the user who is substituted the substitute will see both the workitems of the user he substitutes as his own workitems.

Thanks for the reply Martin.

I have two users user A and user B.

User B is the Substiute for user A.

Now I activated the Substiution. Then Work items will go to the User A as well as user B. Its working fine.

The problem is when I choose the "Adopt Substiution" option it always shows user A only.

Then how can I Adopt the User B.

My version is 4.7N.

Thanks.

Hi Jasmine,

This is correct when B adopts the substitution for A he / she will only see the workitems for person A and not his / her own anymore untill the substitution is ended.
