  1. Can we have an official location for Bugs?

    1. Add a new tab

      An example:
      There is a known issue in the Visual Studio Scrum 1.0 RTW.

      Where does Microsoft put it? I am not sure, but I expect to find it on the product page.
      The product page in this case, is where I downloaded it.

      E.g. http://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/59ac03e3-df99-4776-be39-1917cbfc5d8e

      Visual Studio Scrum
      Figure: Can we have a 4th tab?

    2. Add a record into it

      E.g. This is one entry I would like you to add to this new tab

      The Bug

      Date format bug in the Sprint Burndown report in Visual Studio Scrum 1.0 RTW.
      If you are in a non US locale, this prevents the current sprint being calculated and the report falls over with an error:

              Query execution failed for dataset 'dsSprintsCurrent'. (rsErrorExecutingCommand) 
              The conversion of a nvarchar data type to a datetime data type resulted in an out-of-range value.
                                  

      The Fix

      The fix is to change the RDL.
      Open the Sprint Burndown RDL file
      Change the "Today" parameter from "Text" to "DateTime"

          <ReportParameter Name="Today">
          <DataType>DateTime</DataType>
          <DefaultValue >
          <Values>
          <Value>=today</Value>
          </Values>
          </DefaultValue>
          <Hidden>true</Hidden>
          </ReportParameter>
                                  
  2. Help TFS branding

    It would be great if the TFS tools sorted together and we got the "TFS" brand a little extra juice.

    Add prefix
    Figure: Add "TFS" to the prefix of both these - and hopefully all others will follow
