View progress on the team dashboard (home page)

Teams can view the progress of work from the team home page. Team administrators can add or pin items to this dashboard and re-sequence tiles. Each tile provides team members quick access to the progress of builds, status of work items, or version control paths defined in Team Foundation Server (TFS).
