Provide API documentation for the customization of TFS Web Access 2012
We would like to customize TFS Web Access 2012 to add new tabs, pages and other content to support our in-house processes. We were able to do this in the previous version of TFS Web Access. But there is no info about doing so in the current version of TFS Web Access.

Also, it would be very beneficial to be able to customize the links at the top of the TFS web access site where the navigation links reside to switch between Team projects/Teams within a Server instance. Ideally, a user should only see the links for Team/Project specific dashboards based on his access level and membership to various Teams.
I'm unfamiliar with TFS, hopefully this is simple. I was asked to add a metadata column to the web interface (not Sharepoint, where I could add it through List Settings). When a user drills down to the source code, they're able to see:
Name | Pending Change | User | Version
We need to add a "Date Modified" column.

I see the real benefits of TFS being supported by adding and extending the features available in the Web Access. Being able to support customisations be it with plug-ins or other means would really help TFS provide the information its holds to the finger tips of its users.
The 2012 Web Access is a vast improvement and I'd like to see its features being further extended and on par with the dashbaording capbilities of Jira

We have a similar requirement of adding a new tab , pages etc., to the TFS WebAccess 2012. Support would be helpfull.
I am talking about providing more extensiblity points for customizing TFS Web Access . Custom work item controls are not enough.
