August 9th, 2008 · 2 Comments · Project Management with TFS, Team System Web Access (TWA), TFS Tips and Tricks, TFS Work Item Tracking, VSTS

Requires:

  • The use of HTML description fields in stead of the default description field.
  • Team System Web Access (TSWA) to insert the pictures.

 

Steps:

  1. Use a HTML fields for your descriptions instead of plan text fields
    (might need to copy the old descriptions programmatically).
  2. Add the image you want to use to the work item’s attachments:

    Step1_AddAsAttachement

  3. Save the Work Item.
  4. Double-click your attachment. IE opens. Copy the URL to the attachment to the clipboard.

    Step3_CopyUrl
     

  5. Open the Work Item in Team System Web Access and use the “Insert Images” bottom (from the toolbar within the HTML field):

    Step4_TSWAClickInsertImages

  6. Paste the attachment-URL from clipboard:

    Step5_EnterURL

  7. Save the Work Item.
  8. Done. You can see your picture in the HTML description field.

    TSWA:
    Step6_YouSeeThePicture

    Team Explorer:
    Step8_Voila
