TFS and its features (HOW TO)

Sep 28, 2009 at 7:53 PM

Hi everyone!

I am taking a good look at TFS and it's features and I have a couple of questions if you do not mind.

From what I've seen we can use TFS as a SourceControl and to track Work items?!

1. How does the "Work item" tracking works?

2. And is it possible to make Branches and the likes. I have installed the VS Team Explorer and I can't find how to do it. Is it a feature that is availaible to Codeplex?

Your help guys would be very appreciated!

Hi Thormor,

1. CodePlex integrates with TFS work items. We recommend using the web based issue tracker, though utilizing team explorer will work as well.

2. Branching is a feature of source control. There's currently no way of doing this via the web, and you'll have to use team explorer to do this.
