Join Doug Rose for an in-depth discussion in this video Set up sprints in TFS, part of Agile Project Management: Comparing Agile Tools.
- [Doug] When you open up team foundation server,…or in this case,…Visual Studio team services.…Which again, is the online service version…of team foundation server.…You're going to get a window that looks just like this.…One of the first things I like to do…is to set the iteration dates,…which is right here in the lower left hand corner.…Now Microsoft has a bit of two minds about this…because they call it a sprint burndown…and yet the interval is called iterations.…Now iteration is commonly used with…any framework that you're trying to increase…your Agile mindset.…
And sprints are typically used in Scrum.…But Scrum is still the dominant framework…to help you achieve a more Agile mindset.…And so I like consistency when I'm using my software…so what I like to do is I click on set iteration dates…and then I right-click on the first iteration…and click on edit.…And I change this to Sprint 1.…And then I'll typically also set the start and end date.…Now I like to start my sprints on Thursday…and end them on Wednesday.…
