Project Portal Dashboard inconsistency RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I create a project portal for our projects in TFS 2010, the sharepoint server 2010 portal does not show the PROGRESS dashboard as per http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee461535.aspx

    Instead of seeing the Task Burndown report I get the Remaining Work report.

    I believe there is either something wrong with my CMMI process template or the documentation is wrong. Unfortunately I cannot find where the mapping between the excel report and the dashboard is defined. Is there any way of customizing how the Portal gets created in the template so that I can get the Task Burndown report automatically on the dashboard for each of our projects? Obviously I can change each portal manually but would prefer a less tedious solution.

  • Ok, after reading through some other documentation I found that the dashboard is defined on the Sharepoint side in various locations, the process template merely refers to the Sharepoint "feature" GUID. The reports that show up on the dashboards are defined on Sharepoint Server here:"C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\FEATURES\TfsDashboardMossCmmiContent\elements.xml"

    Since this hasn't changed since installation I would say this is a documentation bug.

  • Hi JonWard,


    Thanks for your post. And thank you for sharing your experience here.


    It seems that the Dashboard(CMMI) not updated timely to introduce us the SharePoint 2010 Dashboard features’ new locations. I suggest you submit it as a suggestion to Microsoft Connect Feedback portal at: https://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio. Microsoft engineers will evaluate them seriously.
