Adding new area and iteration in Microsoft visual studio team foundation server 2008 is very easy but sometime it can go wild and leave you in the middle of nowhere except searching the internet and Googling around for hours. All this can happen if you have recently taken the backup and the system has created temporary files during the backup. The problem you will face at this time is the population of the newly created areas and iteration won’t appear in the bugs and tasks pane where you have to select the appropriate area and iteration at the time of creation.
How to add a new area and iteration is given as under:
- Open the visual studio team explorer and right click on the respective project where you have to create the area or iteration (Area and Iterations are dependant on the project).
- Go to Team Project settings
