  • Visualize progress
  • Collaborate in a team room
  • Work with portfolio backlogs
  • Storyboard your ideas
  • Get feedback
  • Collaborate using team resources
  • Query for work items
  • Link work items
  • Choose the client to support your tasks
  • Work with team project artifacts
  • Work with reports
