Types are used as another way of classifying tasks or transport requests. For example, a task type can differentiate enhancements from fixes.
A type may either be assigned to a task or assigned to a transport request, as indicated by the Applies to property. Once a type has been created, this field cannot be changed. Types that have been used in the past but have now become obsolete may be hidden so that they can no longer be assigned by selecting the Hide this Item toolbar option.
Types are created and edited by TE Administrators via the TE Windows GUI screen configuration screen. [on the Classification tab]
