In TFS 2008, this can be done using TF configureconnections but in TFS 2010, you can use TFS Admin console. You can change under Collection level and items under sharepoint/reports site tabs. Also, see if you have bindings/mapping set correctly to use FQDN name in IIS for various sites/pools in IIS
Also in TFS Admin Console (TFSAC), see if Machine name under "Application Tier" is FQDN and under "Sharepoint Web Application" section, what do you see under "Sharepoint Web Applications" section under "Name/URL" columns.
See if this all helps.

Thank you for your post.
According to your description of the issue, I suppose you want to change TFS server URL. If I have misunderstood anything, please free feel to let me know. You can take following steps for a try:
1. Change TFS binding in IIS manager.
- Open the IIS Management Console-->click on the Team Foundation Server site, local to TFS home page-->click Bindings in right panel.
- Click on “add” in the “Site Bindings” dialog.
- In the “host name” field, type your FQDN of your new tfs url.
- Click OK.
- Click Close.
2. Change TFS server URL in TFS Administration Console.
- Open TFS Administration Console.
- Click Application Tier.
- Click Change URLs in right panel.
- In the Change URLs dialog, change the Notification URL field to your new FQDN you entered in the IIS manager.
- Your notification and web access urls should also be changed automated(refresh if need be).
- To test, open a browser and browse to your new url, which should bring up the TFS web access site.
I hope this information will help resolve this issue.
If anything is unclear, please free feel to let me know.

I added the url in bindings, changed url in TFS console and now when I try to connect to my new url i have 2 errors printed in my TSWA page:

Have you got an idea?

Ok I have a question.... how can I change the url DURING install so it eliminates the error?
TF400567: Broken local Web sites are detected. Before continue, you should fix broken sites or remove them from IIS. For more information, see the configuration log.
And what does it mean by Broken Sites, I have 5 running sites in IIS7.5 and they are all 'ok' it seems?

OK, I've tried this a couple of different ways; both changing the binding and adding a new binding. I've tried setting the Server URL (in the Change URLs dialog) to "Localhost" and to my new URL.
In all cases, as soon as I make the change and go to the new URL, I get prompted for my credentials. I get prompted for credentials 3 times and then the pages comes up blank.
If I change the URL back to the default (http://mymachinename:8080), it works fine again.

Nevermind we figured it out, but we had to modify the web.config for the TFS WebAccess/Web folder (in TFS install path) in order for it to not use the machine name. Like so (see below), it's odd to me that others didn;t need to do this...
<webAccessSettings> <tfServers> <add name="http://tfs.ourcompany.org/tfs"/> </tfServers> .... </webAccessSettings>

We have updated to TFS 2012 from 2010.
We are unable to update the Notification URL, it prompts for credentials and wont accept the credentials.
Treid the steps mentioned above and still same.

I did all the recommended steps:
I changed the Binding in IIS: tfswa.xxx.gov on port 80
Changed the notification URL: tfswa.xxx.gov/tfs
Changed the web config file also – to point to tfswa.xxx.gov/tfs
I still get the error:
unable to connect to this Team Foundataion Server: http://vhaoklhtmtweb1/tfs..............
TF31002: unable to connect to this TFD server http://tfswa.xxx.gov...........
