Adam received an e-mail from a client requesting new features, created 3 work items right from Outlook and assigned them to his developers.
TaskConnect is an Outlook sidebar panel that shows you work items related to currently displayed e-mail.
You can easily create a new work item from Outlook, or attach existing one from your work item repository to selected e-mail.
Emily got a message from TFS server - her developers resolved another work item. The work item was already attached to the e-mail and Emily could mark it as closed with a few clicks in Outlook.
Whenever you get a notification from your Team Foundation Server, relevant work items will be shown automatically.
Once attached, e-mails are shown during whole conversation - respond to your clients or developers, and and everyone will always see the relevant work items right when reading the email.
Trent did a fulltext search for a recent work item directly from Outlook, quickly found that it was resolved and wrote the good news to his client.
TaskConnect has a smart work item search - enter a keyword, and search through all work items' fields at once, without ever using Team Foundation Server's web interface or Visual Studio.

Attach work items once, see them with every mail
Work items are carried throughout whole e-mail conversation, so once you attach an issue to e-mail, you will see it's actual state alongside every client's response and your reply too.
For e-mails sent by TFS, the relevant work item is always attached automatically, which allows you to edit it from Outlook with a single click.
Mail grid column with work item count
TaskConnect mail grid column shows number of attached, resolved and closed work items, so you know what's happening without viewing each e-mail.
Always in sync
TaskConnect always keeps your work items synchronized with server, allowing you to browse them even offline.
Any recent Outlook + TFS server
TaskConnect works with both Outlook 2007 and 2010, and connects to any recent Team Foundation Server.
