Team Foundation Server TEAM tab is removed every time Excel is opened

Posted on 2014-05-23

if like me, you use TFS and Excel to manage your WorkItems, and maybe your TEAM tab is removed every time Excel is opened. To solve this :

  1. Check if this Registry key is on 3 (autostart). HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\Excel\Addins\TFCOfficeShim.Connect.5\LoadBehavior (DWORD)

  2. Enable TFS plugin in Excel :

    • Go to File / Options / Add-ins
    • in the bottom of screen, select Manage COM Add-ins, and click on the GO button.
    • Check Team Foundation Ass-in and click on OK button confirm.

That’s all ;-)
