What’s new in TeamPulse v1?
The first official version of TeamPulse will provide our
customers with great and unique features and will bring even more value
to their teams.
Significant TeamPulse v1 Features and Enhancements
Templates and Rules – configure TeamPulse
in a way that will allow for data to synchronize more naturally with
different types of projects. We ship with many TeamPulse project
templates that map to MSF Agile, MSF CMMI, and Scrum. The templates are a
handy way of having different types of projects with different workflow
rules and validation requirements.
Task Driven Navigation – three
intuitive navigation areas represented in the ribbon: Requirements,
Tracking, and Planning.
What’s New Feed – gives your team a short
sequenced summary of what has changed in the project (e.g. updates to
Stories, plan changes, etc). This information is also available via RSS,
allowing you to monitor the project without even having to run
Best Practice Analyzer -a plug-in model in
TeamPulse, shipped with pre-defined rules allowing you to analyze the
data and make sure that the data conforms to certain characteristics. In
short, the Best Practice Analyzer will take a look at your project for
some very specific conditions that may be of a concern to a
Improved Dashboard and Analytics- improved
with RSS feeds, burn down charts, projects timeline and a real-time view
on the health of all projects along with up-to-date information on
individual and team progress.
Other Features and Enhancements
Major changes from Beta version
The biggest change to TeamPulse since the beta is that the core
TeamPulse application is separated from the Team Foundation Server
synchronization engine. The installation of TeamPulse V1 is provided
without any reliance upon TFS or the TFS Team Explorer allowing
customers who have yet to invest or fully leverage TFS to start gaining
value from our product right away.
We anticipate shipping the synchronization engine as a separate
component in the early fall of this year.
