At work we usually use Team Foundation in it’s most basic configuration so it’s basically a standard source control.

Day by day the code grows and after years of development we now have a fairly big solution with many projects. This requires a lot of effort to maintain and a simple task like producing a change log or training a new developer requires a deep dive in to the code. In order to improve this situation we decided to leverage some of the unused Team Foundation capabilities and more specifically the Work Items feature.

I made a couple of slides about some basic configuration (group Work Items, check-in policies, …) and practical use that I hope that some of you may find useful. This isn’t meant to be “true” presentation but something like a cheat sheet for people interested in expanding the use of Team Foundation.

You can find the slides here:
