TFS Work Item Tags Admin Tool

With the latest updates to TFS and Visual Studio 2013 it’s pretty conventent to use Tags on work items. But there are still a few quirks, like for instance that there is no tool to rename or delete a Tag in the UI (yes, there are APIs for it but obviously not a great option for managers, stakeholders and the likes). Unused tags are automagically removed from the list after a few days so for the patient user at least there’s an option.

But to help us with less patience I’m happy to see that fellow MVPs Tarun Arora and Utkarsh Shigihalli have built a Visual Studio extension that’s now been released to the Visual Studio gallery.

Get the extension here.
