If you have been using the Alerts Editor that is part of the TFS Power Tools, you will notice that you can get e-mail alerts from the TFS server based on subscriptions that you create. You may not have noticed but there is a subtle feature that allows you to easily reply to the person who made the change (such as creating a new work item).
I just got a notification that my colleague Chris at Notion has just confirmed a task for me to go to the ALM Roadshow in Dallas next month. I have a few questions about the assignment so if I click “Reply” in my e-mail program, you’ll notice that the new e-mail doesn’t reply to the TFS Service Account but instead to the person who made the change that triggered the e-mail. Quite handy.
