Change a tracker

A tracker's real-world uses often outgrow the name or description you gave it when you created it. When that happens, it's a good idea to update the tracker to reflect its changing role.

  1. Click PROJECT ADMIN from the Project Home menu.
  2. Click Tracker Settings.
  3. From the list of existing trackers, click the tracker you want to edit, and click EDIT.
  4. On the Edit Tracker page, provide a new name or description for the tracker, and update the icon.
  5. Update the units from DISPLAY EFFORT IN and click Save.
    Note: These units are configured in the Units page at the project level, and not at the planning folder level.
  6. Select INCLUDE FOREIGN CHILDREN to include points and efforts from children artifacts across the projects in TeamForge.
    Note: In a parent artifact, enabling CALCULATE POINTS field sums and rolls up the points from all its children artifacts within the project. In this total, if you want to include children artifacts from other projects across TeamForge, have the INCLUDE FOREIGN CHILDREN option enabled.
  7. If necessary, drag the tracker to a place in your tracker list that makes sense. The order you set here controls the order of every tracker list in your project.
