TFS 2010 Portal Customization Warning

If you are customizing the SharePoint portal for TFS 2010 here is a small warning/tip.

If you are dealing with the "Work Item Summary" web part beware that if you rename the underlying team query for it.

IE8 will become unresponsive, prompt weird error messages, and your team portal will refuse to load again. A colleague of mine experienced this issue this morning, and we were scratching our heads for a bit before finally arriving at a solution.

TFS 2010 Task Burndown Excel Report not showing any data?

This is a quick tip to those of you that are struggling to get any data to show up onto the Task Burndown excel report in the TFS agile 5.0 dashboard.

For some reasons unknown to me, the date filter on the "Date" row label is filtering all dates, even though it is configured to filter "This Month."

I was able to select the dates I wanted without the filter and show the report however that was still a little frustrating.

To fix this instead of using "Date" dimension for the row label is used a "Date Set > Last 4 Weeks" which has a similar effect to "This Month"
