This looks pretty cool and something I could use today. Being able to very easily see our Sprint, move Backlog items between states and having a real easy way to associate new Sprint Backlog Items with their Product Backlog Items, all the while still hosting everything in TFS is something can use now.

Sure you can, and I have, do everything with the existing TFS tools, but it’s harder and somewhat of a distraction. It takes me out of the dev flow to have to fire up VS, open the query, find the Item, etc, etc. This utility looks like it could make updating Items easy and almost second nature…
