Add bugs to the task board or backlog pages

One question I get a lot from customers is how to manage their bugs using Team Foundation Server 2012. Some teams like to track bugs as tasks and other teams track them as backlog items, such as user stories or requirements. If you’re using a Scrum project, bugs are already in your backlog. However, if your team project was created using the Agile, CMMI, or other process template, bugs don't appear on the task board or the backlog pages.

Figure 2: Manage bugs at the Product Backlog level

The Visual Studio team created a blog post explaining the steps to add bugs to either the task board or the product backlog.
