TeamAlerts is an Alerts Manager for Microsoft ® Team System ®. It is an easy-to-use and powerful corporate application for managing notifications about events in Team Foundation Server.
Besides already available basic functions TeamAlerts has additional features: supported by the most popular browsers; possibility of creation complex conditions in subscription options using groups of logical expressions.
A web application called TeamAlerts that is designed to work with Microsoft Team Foundation Server (TFS) is ready for release. The application will greatly simplify and speed up working with subscriptions for work items changes (alerts) in Microsoft Visual Studio Team System (VSTS).
Advantages of TeamAlerts as compared to the standard features of VSTS:
- Two types of subscriptions: project subscriptions (available only for TFS administrators) and personal (''my'') subscriptions (available for all TFS users).
- Reducing the number of subscriptions by setting subscriptions to send alerts not to fixed e-mail addresses but to dynamically detected (in runtime) ones.
- Custom e-mail notification templates can be set up.
While creating TeamAlerts, the developers were thinking about user convenience in managing subscriptions, as the first users were themselves. The application adds the functionality to VSTS it still misses, thus making team software development more convenient and synchronized.
TeamAlerts web-site allows to download full-functional copy of the application which can be used free of charge for 30 days.
