John Lawrence asked in his blog entry “What features would you like for a command line work item tracking tool?“
I use a custom tool i’ve built now to help with tracking progress against work items defined in project server.
Since I can delegate tasks easily from VSTS, I like to use that, but at the end of the day I still need to update my work progress in project server.
- Ability to get all work items (or run a saved query) and view the results on screen or output to file (like XML)
- Other basic CRUD operations.
Until the bridge between Project Server and Team Foundation Server is solid, I will continue to use this tool to track my work item progress–i just think it would be neat to be able to track this without having to maintain a bunch of TFS plumbing code.
