We have added the above alert in TFS 2012.2 to have users notified when a workitem is assigned to him/her. However, it seems to be a bug in this alert, because when a link is added to a workitem, for instance a new Test Case is linked to a Requirement, this alert is sent out to the assigned person of the Requirement.
This can't be right, because the Assigned To is not changed.
