Customize the Appearance of Team Web Access

Visual Studio 2010

You can use Team Web Access to change the appearance of the Web interface, customize the quick launch area, and modify certain application behavior and settings. For example:

  • You can configure all the items in the quick launch area, such as Favorites, Queries, and Reports. You can also specify how many recently-accessed items are listed under each category, both on the Home page and in the quick launch area.

  • You can change several settings that affect the way results and listings appear. For example, you can change the maximum number of builds or search results that can appear per page.

  • You can modify regional settings to match the language and time in your location. The settings reflect the time zone of the server that hosts Team Web Access unless you explicitly set your time zone. You should set your time zone if it differs from that of the server so that your work items appear and are processed correctly.

  • You can set the color scheme theme of the Team Web Access user interface to either green and blue, or to orange and olive.
