Hi and thanks,

Could someone explan what Team Foundation Server Does?

I am guessing that it is for using and working on projects as a team....

Here is what I think I know so far:

Connect to team project
select the: Server

Select the project for that job
   I have noticed that there are:
      Name "Name of project"
      Pending Changes
      User
      Latest "Not Mapped"
      Last Checked IN

I guess you right click one of the project and select Check In Pending Changes???
What does this do???,  Does this take the project and make it available to your local drive (folder) so you can work on the project??? if so how do you upload it after the project is completed???

Please send steps and the process of working on a project from beginning to end???

Thanks

TFS is used as team source control that allows multiple people to work on software development projects. Everyone can work in their own copies and resolve conflicts between the versions on check in.

Checking in should be done when you are finished working on the project and want it available for others in the team. Checking it out would make it available to make changes.


Here is a good tutorial on Jason Zander's blog:

jmiller1979,

Checking out, do you have a snap-shot of what happens when you check out?  

Or

is it in the tutorial link and if so on what page?

I just (for testing) want to chk out
  Does this add your name to the "user"

Thanks

jmiller1979,


I also noticed that selecting extensions like:
.csproj
or
.cs

"C#"

When I right click and the menu comes up I noticed the  "Check Out for Edit" is lighly grayed and will not allow me to select that option.
Does this mean I do not have authority to make changes?

I also notice:
Local Path: Not mapped

If you don't have a local path mapped there is no place to 'Check Out for Edit', so that option is not available. See directions on how to map your local path on this MSDN link.

You also need to make sure that your Check Out permission is set to Allow.
