How to Create an Area

- J.D. Meier, Jason Taylor, Alex Mackman, Prashant Bansode

Create areas to organize team project work into project sub-areas. For example, you could organize your project work into areas such as UI, Application, and Database. Once you have created areas, you can assign scenarios and work items to these areas.

You can start with a single root-level area and then later, as your project matures, you can create areas whenever you need them.

To create areas for your project
  1. In Team Explorer, click your team project.
  2. On the Team menu, point to Team Project Settings, and then click Areas and Iterations.
  3. In the Areas and Iterations dialog box, click the Area tab.
  4. Click the Add a child node toolbar button.
  5. Right-click the new node, click Rename, and then type the area name you want.
  6. Click the Area node.
  7. Repeat steps 2, 3, and 4 to create additional areas. In this way, you can create a hierarchy for your project structure.
