Another use for TFS Work Item Tracking

Our user education (documentation) team recently changed the tooling and process for tracking documentation reviews.  They have a fairly daunting requirement to track reviews of hundreds of topics by dozens of people against a rigorous schedule.  We used to have a purpose build documentation review tool but no one ever liked it.  They recently moved to a TFS/Sharepoint based solution for it.  The results from the first round have been pretty promising and I thought I’d just pass it on as a creative way to think about using TFS to track a complex process.

Here’s look at what the custom work item form looks like:

And here are some of the reports they can produce off of it:

Just thought I’d share it because it struck me as a good example of a way to customize TFS to the needs of a specific process.
