Creating Work Items for Team System through Outlook
While it is easy enough to copy and paste between Outlook at Team Foundation Client, it remains a bit tedious to do it more than a couple times over the course of a workday. So, overall, this product seemed worth it at the time to consider making a recommendation to purchase licenses for the eventual rollout of Team System.
Enter this latest post by Robert Horvick where he details how to achieve very similiar functionality with the VSTO wizard to create an Outlook AddIn. While I haven't reviewed it myself yet to test the functionality, it does seem compelling for a couple of reasons. One, the price is right, its free, and two, the code is available for customization or extension should you need it.
I hope to check it out in the next several weeks and then hopefully be able to write up a proper review comparing them for anyone that might be interested.
