Thanks for getting back to me and showing me a way to generate text output.
I managed to generate a TEXT version of the release notes and it looks pretty cool, currently waiting for feedback.
My next step is to look at the TFS work item template and see if i can add the "Release Notes Comments" field.
If you could point me to any wiki or even an example on how it's done, that'll be great. I have changed the work item template before so i am reasonably comfortable with the concept.
Please see below an example of release notes our team used before.
I believe we have the "Changesets" section covered already by your report and the "Summary" section is the "Release Notes Comment"
Q) is there a way to add a hyperlink to the "Changesets" section so people can click on it and see the changeset details?
Q) Could the "Released" Section be ever automatic? or best to do it manually?
