TeamCompanion v6.0 supports Team Foundation Server 2015 and Visual Studio Online, introduces new productivity features and brings changes to the maintenance policy.
Support for Team Foundation Server 2015 and Visual Studio Online
TeamCompanion v6.0 now supports Team Foundation Server 2015 on-premises. In order to connect to this version of TFS you need to install Team Explorer for Microsoft Visual Studio 2013.
Team Projects hosted on Visual Studio Online and Team Foundation Server 2013 and 2012 are supported as in our previous versions.
TeamCompanion v6.0 introduces custom work item coloring in the query result list. Now you can take advantage of powerful grid coloring capabilities to differentiate work items by their type, state, blocked status and additional custom criteria.

TeamCompanion v6.0 features easier Excel like column level filtering while previewing work item query results. Each column in the grid now includes a built in dynamic filter that allows you to quickly filter your view based on values from one or more columns. Advanced filtering options are available as well.

Starting with TeamCompanion v6.0, yearly maintenance will be charged. A one year support is included with each purchase of TeamCompanion 6.0. If you own one of our previous versions, you will first need to upgrade to TeamCompanion v6.0 and then later extend your maintenance period.
