Where do imported user stories go?

Jul 20, 2010 at 2:43 PM

I am new to visual studios so I applogize if these questions seem real basic but I have searched through documentation and what I find is not very complete or user friendly, especially for novices.

I am trying to import requirements into TFS so I can use them with Microsoft Test Manager to satisfy tracebility between narrative requirements and my test cases.  The only work item available using TCI is User Story so that is what I am attempting to import them as. 

I received back my report with the TFS work item listed but I cannot find them when I go int VS.  Where can I find a guide that explains this process end to end?


Thank you,

I appreciate the help but the problem I am having is I am a tester not a developer. I am not familiar at all with visual studio. The documentation to me jumps all over and each page has link after link. There is no step by step guide for someone trying to learn MTM and the visual studio side of it as far as reports and getting requirements in. I am not a newbie either. I have used QC and IBM rational robot and had no problem at all quickly learning them. MTM is not a tester friendly product.
