TFS Work Item Manager and TFS Project Dashboard
TFS Work Item Manager and TFS Project Dashboard have been inspired by agile development methodologies to facilitate project progress visualization, drastically reduce project overhead and enhance accountability for development teams working with Microsoft’s Team Foundation Server. Both tools have been used extensively internally at Telerik and Imaginet for over six months with great results.
* Item grid filtering, grouping, and aggregation
All work items are displayed in a grid (powered by Telerik RadGrid for WPF) and thus taking advantage of all its powerful capabilities to filter, group, and aggregate results. For example, users can filter work items by title and description - just start typing and the filters will be applied immediately.
* Filter query results using a tree of areas or iterations
TFS Work Item Manager employs a tree view to visually represent areas and iterations instead of using a simple drop down list. The tree visualization provides users with a really dynamic way of filtering out work items without the need to struggle with Excel or be a master in creating queries. Unlike Microsoft’s TFS, you can also see the current iteration with just a click of a button!
* Unique Task board view of work items independent from any process template
TFS Work Item Manager features an advanced Task board that allows information to be pulled from TFS and displayed as post-it notes showing work items and the state they are in. Move these notes around by drag-and-drop or group them by different fields.
* Print work item cards for the board in your room
If your team maintains a physical task board, you can print work items as cards by using Telerik Reporting tool to physically represent selected work items. Each card is color coded based on the work item type and contains the work item type name, ID, and title.
* Iteration schedule
TFS Work Item Manager allows you to schedule iterations – users can define start, end date, and predecessor information for all of the iterations that are defined for this particular project. Unlike Microsoft’s TFS, you can also see the current iteration with just a click of a button!
