A whole new suite of reports has been created for version 3. These include some never before seen scrum reports, including multi team and hours to story point burndown comparisons. See the reports listed to the right for more information.

  1. Fully modeled project life cycle for project tracking and planning.
  2. Support for practically any setup of team / teams.

  4. Automatic roll up of project planning data to clearly display the workloads.
  5. New feature tracking work item model.

We’ve been using the TFS2008 version of this Process Template for a while and have liked it.

When we move to TFS2010 it’s good to know that this will be there and ready for us. If you have used the TFS2005/8 version you’re going to want to check out the information/doc’s about this release. It’s a big change, with a number of pretty dramatic updates/features/etc
