You can track your backlog, manage issues, and perform triage by using the workbooks that are provided with MSF for Agile Software Development. The product backlog workbook helps you plan and track your whole project. The iteration, issues, and triage workbooks help you plan and track an iteration. You can open these workbooks from Team Explorer by expanding your team project node, expanding Documents, and then expanding Shared Documents and Iteration 1.
