    Hello all,
    We were changing our methodology and we want to sync
    Issues to Issues and Task to Task with tfs
    It seems that teampulse is not syncing task to task
    only issues to task and issues to issues.
    how can I sync tasks from tfs to tasks in TeamPulse? is it possible?
    Thanks

    Hi Adir,

    In order to sync Tasks to Tasks and Issues to Issues you need to edit your Synchronization Mappings in your TeamPulse project. You could read more about that here

    First you will have to edit the Entity Mappings. For the task, for example it should be something like that: 
    <EntityMapping TeamPulseEntityName="Task" DestinationEntityName="Task">
    Then you will have to configure the Field Mappings, so the TeamPulse fields match the TFS fields.

    If the information does not help you or you have any troubles configuring the mappings, you could write us back at any time.

    Hey Ivan,
    Thank you for the answer, I've managed to sync task to task under issues.
    I've added custom fields which I don't see in TeamPulse task.
    that's what I've added under TASK in the XML after adding in the new custom field under TeamPulse Settings

    <FieldMapping TeamPulseFieldName="tp_CRMID_cf" TeamPulseFieldType="single" DestinationFieldName="Generix.CrmId" DestinationFieldDisplayName="CRM ID" DestinationFieldType="integer" />
            <FieldMapping TeamPulseFieldName="tp_Versionid_cf" TeamPulseFieldType="string" DestinationFieldName="Generix.VersionId" DestinationFieldDisplayName="Version ID" DestinationFieldType="string" />

    Any idea why I don't see the custom fields CRMID and VERSIONID fields as in TFS?

    Hi Adir,

    I'm glad that you was able to fix your synchronization issue.

    About your custom fields issue, I'm afraid that the fields are only represented in our new HTML5 interface, so you cannot see the custom fields in the Silverlight application. You need to open the item from the new interface in order to see the custom fields.

    If you have any other questions, feel free to contact us at anytime.
