The new dashboards that you get when you use Office SharePoint Server/Enterprise SharePoint with TFS 2010 are excellent. The ability to take an Excel report (possibly created for you from a Work Item Query) and use the SharePoint Excel Data Services to directly plug that report into a dashboard are also great. But, and you knew it was coming, there is a price to pay for this great functionality, and that’s some additional configuration work. This is a good post on, from my perspective, being realistic. You’ll need to allow sufficient time and be prepared to follow the instructions closely. Should you have any problems or questions then a new forum has been setup by the product group to help and record common queries.

Cheers,
