Collaborating

With the Microsoft Team Foundation Server connector, collaborating efficiently with team members is simplified and streamlined. Post comments, attach files and screenshots, share task contexts, and create or navigate associated work items all from within Eclipse.

Comments

When using the Team Foundation Server connector, communicating with your fellow team members is effortless. Without leaving the Eclipse, simply open the work item you wish to comment on and enter your comment in the New Comment section near the bottom of the editor. Pressing submit will post the comment to the Team Foundation Server work item and a blue arrow denoting your new comment will appear next the the same work item in fellow team members' Task Lists if using the Team Foundation Server Connector.
