TFS Project Excel Workbooks should have a corresponding Reporting Services report
Some companies have restrictions on user access to the Analysis Services database and so the Excel Workbooks are not accessible from local machines. Examples are Code Churn and Code Coverage. These and any others not in Reporting Service format should be made so.

The Scrum 2.0 template is missing all of the nice dashboard reports from the MSF Agile Template. Please make the templates consistent in terms of the SSRS reporting capabilities. We are now rethinking our template choice and will probably be switching back to the MSF Agile template.

Thank you for your suggestion. The types of reports that we ship is determined by a number of factors including resources and target audience. In the case of most of the excel reports we felt that an SSRS report that is hard to customize was not going to be as useful to our customers as an example useing excel that they could then customize for their needs.
We will continue to evaluate which reports we ship out of the box and what technology we use to develop those.
