I suggest you ...

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.

        I dont understand how the TFS team thought when they decided not to allow to customize the web portal home page in TFS projects.

        I assume the web portal is not based on sharepoint like in the previous versions and it will take more time to fix this for the TFS team.

        Please add the extensions, when its there, what is the problem in documenting it and giving it to people.

        Needs to be added. I support the idea. Makes no sense why it should not.
        Please add it.

        This would be of Great Help. Honestly I'm not even sure why this wasn't included from the very start

        Customization of TFS Web access should be included. All other ALM products like JIRA comes with this features

        Yes! Please add this and supply a TFS 2013 Preview web access extension SDK/docs. Existing web access extensions appear to be incompatible with TFS 2013.

        I'd really like to be able to customize Web Access.
        As more users seem to use it in 2012, I get more and more requests such as marking Blocked Tasks in the board with a different color/style, distinguish PBIs from Bugs in the release page, changing the default queries etc.

        I would like to be able to add my own dashboard and create my own widgets - containing information that's important to me.

        Knowing the extensibility points would enable me to do this myself.

        We know this is possible to do as the likes of UrbanTurtle are doing it. Can we please have this information made public.

        Thanks

        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.
