How to use TFS Alerts?

With Dynamsoft TFS Hosted, it is very easy to use TFS Alerts. You don't need to do any TFS server-side or SMTP server configuration. Dynamsoft takes care of all that part for you.

You only need to enable the alerts on the client side by following the steps below:

  1. Launch Visual Studio 2010.

  2. Connect to Team Project Collection (menu Team->Connect to Team Foundation Server…).
  3. Open Team Explorer (under menu View).
  4. In Team Explorer, right click on a Project and click Project Alerts...


  5. In the "Project Alerts" dialog box, check the events that you want to subscribe and enter your email address.

    From now on, you will be able to receive emails from support@dynamsoft.com for the alerts you subscribed.
