Are you using sticky notes and index cards on a whiteboard or team wall? Well, if you are using the new MSF Agile 5.0 process template and Visual Studio 2010, you may want to have a look at Urban Turtle, a product from Pyxis, one of our VSIP partners. Urban Turtle is an intuitive Agile Project Management tool (plug-in) for Team Foundation Server 2010. It supports the MSF Agile 5.0 process template right out of the box, and since Urban Turtle works directly with TFS work items, it can be used in combination with the Agile Planning Workbooks or any other TFS tool you already use and love.
Urban Turtle will provide you with a task board to help the team track ongoing work and a planning board to simplify all your planning activities. And, if you have your own process template, or if you customize one of the out of the box template, Urban Turtle will still work for you because it can support virtually any process template through a simple xml mapping file. Have a look and let them know what you think. I’m sure they’d love your feedback.
Thanks for pointing this out - Pyxis has done incredible work on this (and even adding support for the beta Scrum template). Are you aware of any other companies working on this sort of functionality at all (including, if you're able to share, Microsoft)? I just want to compare the competition if applicable.
