Wit-It! – Outlook Add-in for TFS Work Item Alerts
After a small talk with Guy Burstein he comes up with a Great Idea : use outlook form region to show Work Item from Team System.
Then I remembered that working with Event Email in Team System are so irritating.
You can customize Event Emails to work with Team System Web Access but then you can’t open the work item in XML (sometimes you may need it)
But then I noticed that not everyone have TSWA and even this sometimes can be irritating(slow, new look), so why not to open a Work Item Form?
It’s fast, familiar or why not have all the options??
Thanks to Guy Burstein now the solution to our problem is HERE!
Wit-It! allows you to open work items in various ways without customizing team system event subscription.
- Window Form – just like you’d see in Team Explorer
- Team System Web Access
Wit-It! will automatically detect which emails comes from TFS and will show you the Wit-It! panel.
