Add items to the team home page

Each team member can add to the mini-dashboard on their home page by adding and re-sequencing tiles. Each tile provides quick access to a work item query, build definition, or source code folder. A team home page is created when you add a team.

For example, you can see the status of work from the work item queries, such as Product Backlog, Unfinished Work, Feedback Requests, and Sprint Backlog; changes made to the source control folder named Phone Saver; and the status of the build named PhoneSaver.Gated.
