Visualize the rights of a user/group on all different aspects of a Team Project

You can set rights in TFS on a lot of different levels. On Team Project, Area/ Iteration/ Team Queries, Source Control/ Folders/ Files, Builds / Reports / SharePoint. Especially in TFS with different TFS groups that sometimes contain the same users/groups, it is hard to see why a user has a specific right or is not allowed to do something. At the moment it is hard to find this without checking everything manually.
Totally agree. See the user voice "Effective Security Permissions Checker" about the same topics.

Oh how many times I have run into this issue. This would be a great addition to the Admin of security on TFS.

Also at the Collection level. At a minimum, when I'm at a window showing a set of permissions, I'd like to SIMULTANEOUSLY see the window showing any of the groups, including the list of members, that have that permission.
