Bryon Root on Visual Studio ALM

Visual Studio 11 has new views which help Team Foundation Server (TFS).  One item to point out is the web view that shows the permission set. In Visual Studio 2010 we saw the Project security view which at times has been hard to read and work with, especially when trying to drill into a group permissions setting.


With Visual Studio 11, I can quickly see the group permission setting and who is in the group.



In the Overview tab we can see at a quick glance who has been added to a group. We can also add new members or groups to the Team Project.  FYI: It is always recommend to add groups and not individuals.

You can also expand the view by clicking on the membership label to Expand.  This will show both the groups and the individuals.


Another great feature is the ability to create alerts. We can create a number of alerts on different areas and actions within TFS.  (Work Item, Check-in, Builds, and Code Review, to name a few).   We can also create and modify alert as needed.  For example, you can change a build break alert and send it  to a team or person.
