Hi,

Just wondering how customizable is TFS...

For example, what if I wanted to add new state values in the Status section on the Work Item Detail tab Is there a table I can INSERT new values

The same goes for Discipline values...

Thanks,

What you need to do there is to modify the workitem in question and add the values that you would like to use. There are many posts out there on the topic. I would also look to MSDN for Process Template Customizations.

You do not actually modify the sql tables. This will get handled when you import the new workitem. You will want to get familiar with the WITexport and WITImport commands.These command line utilities allow you to export and import the workitem that you are looking to modify.

Editing the work item i.e. customizing the process template long back before is the pain..since if you want to change any thing means ..you have to go xml file and do the changes...at that i thought of any editior which will be available...but it went on vain .......but now it is easy to customize the Process template in a easiest way...i got the Process Template editor...just go through the following link..http://www.gotdotnet.com/workspaces/workspace.aspx id=812a68af-5e74-48c6-9623-1a4469142a84 this will get you the software where you can add or edit any thing..... Then you can have your own methodology with Process template like MSF for AGILE...

Thanks, Kathir
