TeamCompanion for Project and Excel released

Last week we at Ekobit have released the TeamCompanion for Outlook, but that was not the only TeamSystem related release from the TeamCompanion family of tools that has seen the light on that day.

The TeamCompanion for MS Project and TeamCompanion for Excel were released as well. Old time readers of this blog may remember that a bit less than a year ago I have published an MS Project add-in that made opening the work items from inside MS Project possible. This scenario, not normally supported by the TFS add-in for Project coming with Visual Studio Team System, makes the life of a project manager much easier since they don’t need to switch contexts and leave MS Project every time they want to open a work item in order to see its details or to edit it.

TeamCompanion for Project is improved version of that add-in with some problems of the original version solved. TeamCompanion for Excel offers the same functionality but in Excel.

Both tools are free.

I know! And, boy am I happy!:-)
Right now we are working on the TeamCompanion for Outlook for TFS 2008. Expect it (very) soon. Soon after that, the TeamCompanions for Excel and Project will be upgraded too.

Today, month after VS2008 is RTM, no updated TeamCompanion for Excel/Project :(

I know it's free, but you said you would update it...

You are right. They should be updated. That is the reason why I am working right now on the update.
Admittedly, we have been very busy with TeamCompanion for Outlook - we have released two versions since my last comment, and the third one, v 1.2 is in late development stages.
