Visual WIP or Visual Work In Progress is a workflow visualizer. Visual WIP visualizes work items from Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2010 based on Work Item Queries. This post describes Visual WIP early in the development and as it will be show at a demo.
Below are some screen shots that shows the basic functionality for Visual WIP
Picture 1 shows the main screen with the ribbon shown. This version support adding single columns to the board in the main window.
Picture 2 shows the column settings window for a single column. You can set Column name, Work in progress limit and the Work Item Query in TFS that should be used to populate the column.
Picture 3 shows the main screen again with four single columns added.
The column User Stories Development has it’s positioning tool shown. Use this tool to move: Up, Down, Left and Right. Use the sliders to adjust the Width and Height. The column User Stories Development has a WIP limit of 2 and both slots are taken.
The column User Stories Ready for test has a WIP limit of 2 but only 1 slot is taken.
