      I used the invitation code from the video to sign up to the preview - will I be thrown out for being a dirty thief?

      Cool! After long l time everything worked as designed. Will be hosting few projects soon. Quick question - what is the data type for remaining work in create new work item workflow. I created new workitem as task and tried remaining work as 100%, 2 days - did not work for me so i kept it blank...Cheers!

      @TheGringo: I'm pretty sure no-one will mind if you 3 other people are as resourceful.  Let us know what you think about it once you've had a chance to play for a while.

      @abhijit:The Remaining Work be default is in hours.  That was a deliberate decision as it makes you evaluate how long you have left on this task which actually what you care about.  What you don't care about is how accurate your initial estimate was or having all your tasks getting to 80% done and then staying there Smiley  Does that make sense?

      This TFSPreview.com worked great for me.... and it even worked with TeamCompanion

      Also, nice video. I think that is Richard Hundhausen's handsome voice. He is very fast and efficient when he works Smiley

      You move way too fast. This is great information but you're not in a race!
