Looking for trend reporting against VS Online and more? Peruse the new TFS Reporting Guide!


We are pleased to announce the release of TFS Reporting Guide v1, which will take you on a fascinating journey to discover the exciting and powerful reporting features provided by Team Foundation Server. This is v1 of a potentially long and evolutionary adventure.

This guidance is focused on providing practical guidance and a reference solution to enable Team Foundation Service users to create a tabular store model and generate trending reports based on WIT data, and to enable TFS users to create valuable reports using the TFS Data Warehouse, based on real-world scenarios.

Examples of possible real-time and trending visualisations created using the guidance against the ALM Rangers VS Online account:

    Hi Willy, I am unable to download "Rangers_vsarreportguide_v1_Everything.zip". It just shows "waiting for download-codeplex-sec.s-msft.com".

    @Utkarsh, we just retested and it downloads fine. Can you download all of the other files? If yes, you can skip the "everything" which contains all of the other files.
