Is it possible to extract Email Group names from Outlook and include them in a drop-down for selection
Monday, July 02, 2012 8:15 PM
A new 'Email Distribution List' is created for each new project within our company using a standard convention, i.e. HCHB Project X, HCHB Project Y, HCHB Project Z, etc.
We would like to be able to choose these selections from within a work item to better map the work item to a project.
Is there any possible way to query those special project email distribution lists and include them in a drop-down for selection.
Any input or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your post!
Do you mean you want to make an Email Group is included in the team project work item?
If yes, I think you can add the Email Group to the TFS project, then add the gruop to the work item. In the work item template file, please add the following script:
Suppose the group name is "EmailGroup",
<FieldDefinition name="EmailGroup" refname="EmailGroup.Email" type="String">
<LISTITEM value="[project]\EmailGroup" />
In addition, I recommend you use Process Editor, which you can get it from Tools->Process Editor in Visual Studio if you install TFS Power tools. You can also get related help document from Start->All Programs->Microsoft Team Foundation Server 2010 Power Tools->Help.
Hope it helps!
