Customzing Process Templete in TFS

Hi Folks,

one of the most important features on Team System is the ability to customize the existing methodologies (Agile & CMMI) and add your own methodology.

To customize the process document; do the following :

1) Download any of the Existing process documents methodologies.
2) Add or delete any docuemtns you dont want;for example (Project Management folder;Requirements folder).

Before uploading your new methodology there's small Tricks :

1) You have to give your methodology a uniques name;O.W. you will get this message "Do you want to overwrite Agile Software Development Methodology" if you download it;this is because this name is taken from ProcessDocument.xml.
You have to edit node in this xml file to your methodology name.

2) Any Documents you will add or remove under Sharepoint services folder, you have to update corresponding xml file "wssTasks.xml" and remove the XML nodes o add your own with the same format on that XML.

HOPE THIS HELPS.
