Product backlog column/type missing?

Hi and thanks for a very great dashboard.

We have started to test it in our Conchango projects.

The column for PB has no information if the item is a Product backlog item or a BUG.

Havn't anyone else need to see the type of a row?

We prefix all our work items with either "PBI" or "BUG" in the title, so it hasn't been an issue for us...

Yes, but the item type is already in the TFS, why type the same information manually???

Completely unneccesary work.

What scenario do you have where you would want to know the difference in the Scrum Dashboard?

The need to see if it is a bug och PBI is more or less every Sprint planning meeting. When chosing beteween PBI's and BUG's. If the BUG should be fixed next sprint or the sprint after.

Sometimes there are bugs that are very time consuming, maybe bigger than a PBI and we have been foold by the not done calculations several times since the product owen sometimes can't see the difference betweeen a bug and a new PBI.

I noticed that impediments are shown with a litlle yellow warning sign.  Maybe a similar solution with another icon???

Not a bad idea.  My suggestion would be to add a feature request on the issues tab.

In our case, we just let the Product Owner prioritize the PBIs and BUGs together, and then go from there.
