Let me introduce you to the new Automated Servicing and Administration Platform for Microsoft Team Foundation Server: http://www.tfsasap.com
TFS ASAP is the answer to the following question most TFS users ask us:
Can I have aggregates effort numbers in parent work items?
Does the parent automatically change its state when all children have been closed?
Can I see the impact of my changes to a requirement within the hierarchy?
Can I book hours on a task for Friday last week?
TFS ASAP is a server-side extension for TFS that helps you with those questions. It’s an extensible platform for which you can implement your own plugins (Enterprise Edition required) or use the rich built-in plugins that we will constantly extend and evolve in future updates to customers who subscribed to our maintenance service.
We’ve created a bunch of product videos which show the power of TFS ASAP and it’s ease of usage: http://www.tfsasap.com/video.html
