Cons
The dashboard needs more enhancements.More options could be provided from the perspective of requirements management, which would help product owners to use the tool effectively.Since it is Microsoft, it is technology agnostic, thus it does not really fit into various different technologies in the organization.We are also using Microsoft Teams. The two products function separately. There is not enough collaboration between Microsoft Teams and TFS.TFS on-premise does not support integration with SharePoint Online.
