TeamLook and TeamSpec have been discontinued.

After more than a decade of developing solutions for Visual Studio and Microsoft Office, TeamSolutions is shutting down. This web site and existing web services that support the products will continue until July 2020.

With the latest releases of TeamLook and TeamSpec there have been some changes to our licensing policy. We are excited to announce that we have fulfilled a popular customer request; allow their license to work on multiple machines. Previously, our licensing was per-machine. Now, it is per-user. There are several benefits with this new model:

A user on a Windows active directory environment can activate TeamLook or TeamSpec on their desktop, and then install the product on their laptop (if part of the same active directory domain), and the product will be already activated. A user no longer needs Administrator permissions to install TeamLook or TeamSpec, thereby simplifying the installation process. These changes have had an effect on our previous licensing model. Customers who have purchased TeamLook or TeamSpec in the past year will be able to upgrade to the latest version free of charge. Customers who purchased prior to November 1, 2012 have these options:

Continuing with our improvements for Team Foundation Server Test Case work item support, we’re very happy to say we now have the ability to add Test Case Results to your document! This improves your traceability even more by showing the results of the testing for each requirement right there in your project documentation.

We’ve added it as a simple field you can drag and drop from the Team Spec Index Panel. As with all other TeamSpec Fields refreshing will update the field to the latest value.

Lately we have been putting a lot of effort into improving project traceability by using TeamSpec and Microsoft Word. Out of this effort came one of our favorite new features - the ability to create and edit Test Cases right from Word and publish them to Team Foundation Server!

This is great because now you can use the built in editing and review features of Word to author your test cases where they belong - right alongside the relevant Requirements, Product Backlog Items, or User Stories that you’re trying to test.

Just fill out the Test Case Steps table with Actions and Results, adding rows as necessary for additional steps. You can then review the steps as normal Word content before publishing the updates to Team Foundation Server.

TeamSolutions will be back in Redmond, WA at the end of this month to attend this year’s Visual Studio Industry Partner Summit. In addition we will also have a booth on display at the Partner Solution Expo to showcase the latest features of TeamSpec and TeamLook, and provide personalized demonstrations and answer questions.

We look forward to meeting other VSIP partners and members of the Visual Studio team!

We receive a lot of feature requests for TeamSpec, and hands down the biggest request over the past few years is what we call “Query Blocks”. Query Blocks allow you to import entire Team Foundation Server (TFS) Queries into your Microsoft Word document. As the query results change TeamSpec will keep your document in sync by detecting these changes and updating or removing work items as necessary.

You’ll find the Query Blocks panel in the right-hand pane within TeamSpec. Double clicking on a query will populate the Results Pane.

Recently we were contacted by a customer that had some great questions about inserting Product Backlog Items (PBI) and requirements in general, into his Microsoft Word document using TeamSpec. The idea was to run a Team Foundation Server query that contained all the latest backlog items and then automatically insert that into his specification document. The ultimate result would contain the PBI Title and Description fields, with the title formatted as an H2 numbered multi-level list, followed by the description as normal text.

For example, the PBI imported into TeamSpec appear similar to:
