Good branching and labelling features.The most valuable feature is the backlog.The interface is easy to navigate.The most valuable features are the dashboard and task-selection capability.This solution enables us to link all items usefully, in the way we use Agile.I like the build management features and the integration with Jenkins and many other tools.I like the Kanban board. It is very useful in terms of seeing who is working on what and what the current status of work is.It's an integrated system that includes all the information that we need to deliver our products smoothly and to track the progress of each piece of code.

Cons
Integration from Visual Studio could be improved.The program and portfolio planning facility can be improved.I would like to see the reporting features expanded so that I can see details on the users connected to all of the projects.The interface can be improved and made more user-friendly.The test management interface is not very handy.One of the areas that could be improved is to have an effective full lifecycle management.In the next release, I would like them to include integration for various projects, similar to what JIRA has, and they could create this feature on the dashboard.The dashboard needs more enhancements.

More TFS Cons »
