Create plans and work items

This tutorial is a series of lessons in movie format that demonstrate how to use the Engineering Workflow Management client for Microsoft Visual Studio IDE to create plans and work items.

You can use plans to manage work items within the context of fixed development periods within a project. You can create a plan overview; create and modify work item assignments for team members; track the progress of the work that is committed for the iteration; and create additional documentation.

You can create different types of plans for a project, such as a Project Release plan, Team Release plan, and Iteration plan.

A work item is a method of tracking tasks and issues that a team addresses during a development cycle. The status and number of work items are indicators of the health of your project.
