We are pleased to announce that we have released the first version (1.0.12.0622) of the Team Foundation Server Word Add-in. The add-in allows you to import work items from a Team Foundation Server Team Project and generate professional-looking Word document from TFS Work items.

Coffee break with the dev lead

Rob Jarratt To share a bit of the human aspect of this project, we decided to ask our dev lead, Rob Jarratt, the following question: “Why have and are you investing such an amazing amount of time, passion and tenacity in this project?”

Rob‘s answer: “I love building things. Seeing the things I have had a hand in building being used by other people is a special thrill, so I hope the people who download the add-in find it useful. “

What’s Next?

  • The team is hard at work on:
    • Team Foundation Server 2012 Object Model based installation  
  • Future plans:
    • Bi-directional support to read and write to Team Foundation Server

  • Congrats Guys!

  • This looks good. But can we not publish items from word back to the TFS? We need this because we create requirements in word docs and need a way to publish them in TFS.
