TestTrack Pro and TFS

Issue Management
If you are a loyal reader of this blog, chances are that you read Gerhard Kruger's post about our Visual Studio Integration.  In this article, Gerhard talks about accessing TestTrack Pro items and Surround SCM actions from within Visual Studio. I'd like to present a different angle to this integration, specifically, the TestTrack Pro integration. Since Visual Studio is also the TFS client, this means that you can also access TestTrack Pro items from TFS.  Following is a screenshot of the TestTrack Pro defect list (renamed to "Issues") docked along the source code view in TFS.  If you use TFS for source control and would like to update TestTrack Pro items, use the TestTrack Pro Add-in toolbar so you don't have to use two different clients.
