Tell us what you think about reporting

The teams responsible for Team System reporting are interested in your feedback as they map out a course for the future.  Reporting is one of the most powerful components within Team System.  In fact, I use the reporting capabilities of the system on a daily basis to help me get a handle on our various projects.  We have created numerous custom reports (which I hope to show you over time) and are always looking for more ways to leverage the information available in the system. However, I’m afraid most customers aren’t realizing the full capabilities of the system. So, I’m interested in learning how important reporting is to you and your teams, what data you look at and what information you’d like to see but can’t seem to get at.  Part of this will inform our investment in reports available out of the box as well as understanding what areas need to be easiest to customize.  I know what I, as a customer want, but I’m even more interested in hearing what you want. 

Please take 10-15 minutes to tell us:

    There are a number of basic things that I’d like an explanation about how the reporting/warehousing works w/ TFS. For example, how do you make the warehouse refresh? It doesn’t seem to work via the warehouse controller webservice. Additionally, I’d like to know how the warehouse handles custom fields from workitem types. It appears that new columns are added for new workitem type fields–what if you need to change your workitem type field? how do you KP the warehouse? While I agree that reporting is mega powerful, at the moment there is such a lack of documentation I find the actual usage of it rather dauting.
