In my last post, I covered the topic on creating a team dashboard. Let’s look at the dashboard experience on Windows SharePoint Services / SharePoint Foundation:

  • SharePoint Dashboards
    • SharePoint Server dashboard
      • Out-of-the-box experience
      • Customizing the dashboard
      • Creating a team dashboard
    • Windows SharePoint Services/SharePoint Foundation dashboard

Windows SharePoint Services / SharePoint Foundation dashboard


When integrating TFS with SharePoint Foundation, you get two dashboards:

  • Project Dashboard and
  • My Dashboard

The Project Dashboard includes the burndown and burn rate reports that are SQL Reporting Services reports. In addition, we also have the Team Web Access web parts showing live data like the product backlog items, recent builds & checkins etc. similar to the SharePoint Server dashboards.

And, My Dashboard shows data that is relevant to my work – my tasks, bugs and test cases. As shown before, these web parts are customizable so I can change the query to show data I care about. For example, I can easily change My Bugs web part to show me only priority 1 bugs instead of all bugs.

With this topic I covered out-of-the-box experience with SharePoint Dashboards we have in TFS 2010 including customization. In the next topic, we’ll look at some of the rich new set of SQL Reporting Services reports that are included in the Agile and CMMI templates.
