Today Team Companion not only reached a new milestone (v 4.7) but is is also sim shipping with VS 2012.
For those who are not aware, Team Companion is an Outlook add in, that allows you to manage your TFS work item, do agile planning, see the reports and sharepoint documents (associated with a team project) right from Outlook, without having to open VS. It allows you to easily send a list of work items via email, create work items directly from an email, among a lot of other things.
It’s a tool that I’ve been using since its first version and that I recommend to all my customers.
In order to celebrate 5th anniversary (and VS launch <g>) Ekobit is going to give away FREE personal licenses to anyone who requests.
