Once you've defined your product backlog, you can use the following controls to change or filter the view.
|Backlog options||Switch backlog view
|View options||- Turn Parents on/off
- Turn Forecasting on/off
- Turn In Progress items on/off
- Show Mapping
- Show Planning
|Filter||Turn filtering On/Off|
|Settings||Manage teams and configure team tools|
|/||Full screen||Enter or exit full screen mode|
|/||Expand/Collapse||Expand or collapse one level of the tree hierarchy|
|Actions options||- Set column options
If you turn the In Progress control off, then items that are in the Active, Committed, or Resolved states or in the In Progress category state won't appear in the backlog.

If you set the In progress control to Hide, then items that are in the Active, Committed, or Resolved states or in the In Progress category state won't appear in the backlog.
Even if you have show parents turned on, the Create query and mail controls will only list items at the currently selected level.
