    I've had some problems syncing my Team Pulse project with our TFS server. When I try to sync I get a couple of errors saying "Work item has invalid fields. (FieldName='Completed Work' | Value='0.230' | Status = 'Invalid type').

    The issue occurs when syncing tasks from TP->TFS, if I set the value Completed Work in TFS, the sync works without problem.
    From what I have gathered it has something to do with the separator used for the decimal value, in Sweden we use comma instead of decimal point.

    Hi Support,

    We have the december 2011 version of Team pulse installed, and I have also a issue with synchronisation.
    I get this error:

    Work item has invalid fields. (FieldName='Assigned To' | Value='Kees Brussen' | Status='InvalidListValue')

    Can you tell me if it should be solved in that release?
    Or is it a completely different problem.
    Now I cannot use the TFS integration. Or is there a workaround ?

    Best regards

    Hello Kees,

     It seems that your name is spelled differently in TeamPulse and TFS. The error you received appears when an item cannot be synced from TeamPulse to TFS because the assigned to user could not be found in TFS.
     You can either change your name in TeamPulse to be the same as in TFS or add a value mapping setting in the synchronization mappings xml and attach it to each entity type. Here is an example for the mappings:

    <FieldMapping TeamPulseFieldName="AssignedTo" TeamPulseFieldType="string" DestinationFieldName="System.AssignedTo" DestinationFieldDisplayName="Assigned To" DestinationFieldType="string" ValueMappingName="AssignedToMapping" /> 
        <ValueMapping Name="AssignedToMapping"
            <Value TeamPulseValue="Greg Smythe" DestinationValue="<how your name is spelled in TFS>" /> 
    You can read more about synchronization mappings from here.

    If you experience any difficulties performing the suggested changes do not hesitate to contact us again.
