Configuration changes made to add new features

When you run the Configure Features wizard, it assesses your team project, determines which features are missing, and adds them. Before you can use this wizard, you have to upgrade to Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2013.

Note Note

To see the Configure Features link to access the wizard, you must be a member of one of the following groups: Team Foundation Administrators, Project Collection Administrators, or Project Administrators for the team project.
