1. In RTC Eclipse client, when I right click on "Feeds" folder I see a menu option "new query feed subscription" which is greyed out. Why is it greyed out?

2. I'm not getting feeds on the web client. Why?

I was also able to reproduce the issue using eclipse client 4.0 that the feed "New Query Feed Subscription" is currently grayed out.  I will research why this feature is grayed out.  In the mean time, please use the work around to add query to you feeds:

1. Go into Team Artifact View in eclipse client.
2. Right click the query you would like to add feeds to.
3. There should be an option to select "New Query Feed Subscription.

As for question 2.
The dashboard is not exposing the feeds URL for all feeds unfortunately.  However, the "My work item change" feed has the form:
Where ${current_user}  is your user ID

I don't know about 1), but for 2), if you mean that you don't know where to find feeds, I can help. On a project dashboard (and probably the other dashboard types too) you can add one of several feeds viewlets, under the Feeds category.

I have users who don't spend all day in eclipse and don't use the web client (nor would they keep it open constantly), but there are other active-pinging resources they would use (e.g. RSS feeds in outlook 2010/Feeds in IE) that would keep users updated based on feeds.

Here is my best effort answer to this questions:

  1. Right click the new feed you would like to move to outlook and select "Copy Feed URL."

  2. Paste the URL into a browser, this bring you to a page that you can subscribe to new feeds.

  3. Select the Choose Applications on the Subscribe feeds menu.

  4. Choose the Outlook 2010 that you wish to add feeds to.

  5. Select Subscribe Now.
