Clarification: access to Features control panel

May 19, 2014 at 4:41 PM

I've been reading how to deploy not only a Backlog Items bucket, but also a "Features" bucket. At least based on MSDN sources, there may be value in having a Features backlog area in addition to the conventional Backlog Items area.

However, apparently out of the box, TFS 2013 (Update 2?) does not include access to Features by default.

So... Potentially, enter Features4tfs. Is that the purpose of this solution? Or are there other ways to expose the Features backlog?

Is this accurate? Can someone shed some light on the subject? Because by default the control panel(s) do not expose Features at all. Or it is something that otherwise needs to be incorporated into the Team Project configuration.

Thank you...

Best regards.
