When checking code into TFS, a build should be triggered as per the rule Do you know the minimum builds to create on any branch?

You should not just trigger a build and walk away however – make sure that build succeeded!

The first way is from within Visual Studio.

Figure: Good Example – Check your build has passed from Team Explorer | Builds

The second is by always having the TFS Build Notification tool always running. Through it you can subscribe to any builds you are interested in, when they start, end and their status.
