I know this process template is well done and necessary for my team BUT !
It doesn't work on a french TFS Server with it's french portal.
I tryed 1000 things I still have the TF249033 error

le modèle de site n'est pas disponible pour l'identificateur de paramètres régionaux (LCID). Le nom du modèle de site est : TFS2010 Agile Dashboard. Le LCID est : 1033. (type TeamFoundationServerException)

The process template is not available for this LCID... bla bla bla ... LCID is 1033

I absolutely need this process template and the sharepoint and reporting services.

Please, publish a procedure to install this project template on a French TFS Server.

Best regards,

A good template for running scrum projects, the burndown detects current sprint and makes it much easier to change sprint.
One thing that could be improved is support for multiple teams.

Great job!.
But i have a question. today is the end of a scrum project. I want an amount of all initial task time. so that i can get if my team member's work good or bad. and so that i can make a report to my boss: how much works we finished.

now, in this project, the "remaining work" field is changed from "10" to "3", at last, when the state changed to "Done", the remaining work field's value is no longer exist.

how could i get the initial "remain work" value ?

thanks in advance.

  • Installation broke all existing SharePoint Dashboards
    4 Posts | Last post November 24, 2011
    • Hi, 
      The installation of the template worked without problems, including the commands for Sharepoint. However, after the installation, when I try to activate the Team Foundation Server Scrum dashboard feature, I have the following error: 
      'Failed to instantiate file "dashboardlayouts.aspx" from module "ScrumDashboardPages": The specified list does not exist. 
      Troubleshoot issues with Microsoft SharePoint Foundation. 
      Correlation ID: d3648c74-5a37-4772-a79c-fd51c11c24ac'
      Furthermore, for any existing project, if I try to activate any of the pre-existing dashboards if gives the following error:
      'A list, survey, discussion board, or document library with the specified title already exists in this Web site.  Please choose another title. 
      Troubleshoot issues with Microsoft SharePoint Foundation. 
      Correlation ID: 1ca207b6-fa72-4564-9757-70e4d6e6e506'
      It is needless to say that it's a quite serious problem, as we cannot enable the dashboards for any of our other agile projects.
      We have tried to uninstall the Scrum template, and to repair the Sharepoint installation without any success.
      Thank you for any help, regards, 
    • Hi, i have the same iissue, it's a big trouble. Is there are any ideas for this problem?
      Thank you. Sergey.
    • Are you missing the reports behind the dash bored?
      Also do you in fact have access?
    • Hi, I have the exact same error on my setup. 
      SSRS always displays "no Data", althought WE DO have data as the Sprint advances. 
      After I activated the feature on the server, I got the same error as Carlos Boneti. 
      Did anyone found the solution ?  this is so frustrating.
  • Tried Everything and Release Burndown Chart is still Empty

    • * All Sprints have Begin/End Dates
      * Backlog items in sprints have been committed
      * Backlog items all have efforts assigned
      * Sprint item states are assorted - some are To Do, some In Progress and some Done.
      * I've refreshed TFS Warehouse multiple times over multiple days
      * I've tried viewing the Query in the query designer of Report Builder and nothing is returned.
      What's going on?  Why isn't it working?

  • Scrum for multiple teams and different sprint times
    1 Posts | Last post October 20, 2011
    • Hello, I'm testing TFS in terms of our company and meet one difficultie:
      How to configure this process template to meet following pattern:
      We have a lot of teams which works on same system.
      This teams have sprints which starts on different time (one tema have 1week sprints, another - 4 weeks, etc).
      In other case we have project iterations (feature).
      Is it possible to configure Scrum template to be able to make TLs of teams able to plan their own sprints, PMs look for whole feature and for per-team burndown?
      could you give some advices for how to configure it?
  • Sprint BurnDown Chart Doesn't Work
    2 Posts | Last post October 07, 2011
    • I did the following.  I updated Release1\Sprint1 to have a start date of 8/22/2011 and an end date of 8/26/2011.  I then added a new work item and assigned it to this sprint.  I gave the work item 20 for the remaining work and then I set the status of the work item to In Progress.  I then updated the cube by call ProcessWarehouse on the WarehouseControlService.asmx.  I then closed and reopeneded VS. The report still shows no data. What am I missing?  It looks like no matter what you do nothing shows up on the report?
    • met the same problem, Is any body seen or solved this problem?

  • Bug state question
    1 Posts | Last post August 30, 2011
    • Hi all, I am currently assessing a TFS Template for our future use. We are currently using a very modified CMMI process, but we're really only using it for bug tracking.
      I have a feeling I know the answer to this question, but I'd like confirmation. Looking at the bug states available for MS VS Scrum 1.0, I've noticed that the available states are "New", "Approved", "Removed", "Committed", and "Done". What I want to know is why there is no conept of "Closed". "Done" to me suggests that the necessary tasks have been completed to fix the bug, whereas "Closed" is a kind of final sign off by a tester to say that this bug has been verified as fixed in the current build of the software. Am I mis-interpretting these states?
