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.

Test Cases with TeamSpec

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 have received a number of questions similar to the following: "I have a heirarchy of Requirements and PBI (Product Backlog Items) as children to those requirements.  How can I represent those easily in my requirements document?"

Fortunately, in our latest version published last month, we now have a deep integration with related work items!
