{QUICK TIP} MAKE CHECKIN COMMENTS MANDATORY FOR YOUR DYNAMICS CRM PROJECTS

Often I have been in cases where we have tight deadlines to meet to write some code and utilizing TFS for check-ins, I see that many change-sets do not have comments for check-in. In a long run, this becomes a habit.

The most basic thing to do there is to set a policy in place, unless you put a check-in comment, you cannot provide a check-in.

Here is how you need to do it:

In Visual Studio (2012/2013).

· Open “Team Explorer”.

· Select your “Team Project”.

· Click “Settings”.

· Under the “Team Project” heading click “Source Control”.

· Select the “Check-in Policy” Tab.

· Click “Add…”

· Select “Changeset Comments Policy”.

In Visual Studio 2010, you will have to install the Team Foundation Power Toys on all client machines – those without it installed will not be able to check in code.

The end result is that now on all check-ins, if you do not provide the check-in comment:

Hope it helps!
