Involved in web and windows software development using MS Tools and Technologies including VSTS (TFS and Team Suite), early beta release of .net 1.0 framework, VS 4.0, 5.0, VS 2002, 2003, 2005 & 2008, Visual Interdev
A product enhancement request related to Project Alerts area w.r.t. Team Builds. As of now, TFS provides 2 team project level related to team builds i.e.,
1. When a build completes 2. When a build quality changes
But in practical world, the audience/stakeholders for these alerts is always different for each build type lets say a scenario for Daily Build vs Bi-weekly build or Development Build vs Release Build. Same holds true for the build quality changes of these builds.
A QA / UAT / PRODUCTION resource is not interested in all the builds and its quality changes except the Release Build.
Request : So, It would be nice to have Build Alerts a part of build type definition itself. The project alerts at the team project level will still be beneficial at the project team level / project managers and above ....
