Integrating TFS with Aligned Elements
Since the release of Aligned Elements V2.1 SP 1, it is possible integrated Work Item lists from your existing Team Foundation Server in Aligned Elements.
With the appropriate configuration, coupling your Aligned Elements user with your TFS user, your Work Items dynamically appear in a separate Item view.
In Aligned Elements, the Work items behave and are treated very much like regular Document Objects, meaning that you can open and edit them in a Document Object form, set traces to them, set up inconsistency rules for real-time checks etc.
When saving changes made to a Work Item in Aligned Elements, the attribute changes are routed to the TFS server, effectively separating the two repositories according to their respective responsibilities.
Using the "Go to Original" link in the Document Object Form automatically opens a browser and navigates to the Work Item on your TFS server.
Using the Aligned Element TFS integration, permits you to benefit from your existing Team Foundation System infrastructure in the Design History File management, working smoother, faster and with less interuptions.
