Team Foundation Server Update 1: Viewing the Kanban board

With the release of Update 1 for Team Foundation Server 2012, Microsoft added a Kanban board to the list of available features.

But where can I find this feature? If I click on View board in the ACTIVITIES list on the team home page, I end up at the original task board.

Same thing if I click on the board menu option that appears on the Product Backlog page.

So how can I open the Kanban board?
  • On your team's home page, choose View backlog to navigate to the product backlog page.

  • Highlight Product Backlog in the explorer pane and choose the board tab.

  • The Kanban board opens.The Kanban board automatically displays the top-ranked items in backlog priority order. Column titles will vary based on your process template.

  • What’s nice is that you can limit the WIP(Work-in-Progress) per column.
