CodePlex Scrum Sprint Monitor For Team System
I have published a post regarding the Scrum Process Template here.
Now I like to talk about a grate addition to the Scrum with Team System.
In CodePlex there is a project name Scrum Sprint Monitor located here.
This project is a screen saver that shows you the Sprint status at all times with nice summaries, graphs and charts.
To set it up you need to do the following:
Step 1: Edit the “SprintConfiguration.txt” file
Here is an example:
ProjectName= Scrum Example
ProcessTemplateName= Scrum for Team System
IterationPath= Scrum Example\Release 1\Sprint 1
'BuildDefinitionName= <CI Build Definition Name>
SprintStartDate= 2009-3-18 10:00:00 -6:00
SprintEndDate= 2009-4-18 17:00:00 -6:00
Step 2: Edit the “team-info.xml” with the Team Members
Here is an example for one team member, you can add as many as you like:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<time-zone>Eastern Standard Time</time-zone>
Step 3: Launch the “ScrumSprintMonitor.Wpf.Application.scr” a screen will popup, fill all fields.
Team Server Name – The TFS server name.
Sprint Configuration File – Navigate to the “SprintConfiguration.txt” file.
Team Members Configuration File – Navigate to the “team-info.xml” file.
Step 4: Click OK to start the screen saver.
