Microsoft TFS, Test Manager & Visual Studio–Why use it?

At Tech Days in Montreal a gentleman and I were chatting about Test Manager. He made a statement that I thought was well worth sharing.

It goes something like this:

“With Test Manager we no longer have to try and figure out when a tester leaves the company what all the excel spreadsheets on their desktop are all about. We know where the test cases are and what they test. It is great.”

I for one have been an advocate of reducing the paperwork tester’s have been required to generate. I know there were times we spent more time documenting what we were going to do then actually doing it. Including testing!

The comment was well stated and I agree Microsoft has created a great tool.
