IEeee User Guide

IEeee! is an addin to Internet Explorer that allows you to easily submit a defect about the page you are currently browsing.
Because it is integrated into IE it can capture a significant amount of extra information that normally wouldn't get included in a defect report, this includes:
  • A Screen Shot of the page
  • The source HTML of the page
  • Any script files being used by the page
  • Any CSS pages that are referenced in the page
  • Details about the client browser configuration (e.g. screen resolution, browser version, ...)
  • Assign default values for any field in the defect report (e.g. Area, Iteration, Assigned To, ...)

After installation, the IEeee button will be displayed in Internet Explorer's toolbar - ok so I need a better button image.

If this is the first time have used IEeee, after clicking this button, the Server Configuration dialog will be displayed to allow you to select the TFS Server and project that you want to create the defect report in. You will also be asked to specify the type of work item you want to raise. IEeee will remember the TFS settings and will re-use them in subsequent sessions.

The Bug Description Screen will displayed. This screen allows a summary and description of the bug to be entered as well as being able to select the information that will be included or attached to the bug.

IEeee will attempt to contact the TFS Server the first time this dialog box is displayed in any given session. Until the server has been contacted, the OK button will be greyed out. During this time you can still enter the summary and configure the attachment details. This delay will not occur on the creating of subsequent work items.

At this point you can click the Edit button to use the Image Editor to crop or mark up the screen shot.
And you can also use specify any Field Default Values that you want to use.

The details field will contain information about the current page and the user browser. An example is provided below:

After clicking Ok, the Bug Details screen will be displayed. Note that this will work for any Work Item Types - i'm just assuming its going to be a Bug :-)

Bug Details - attachments.png

The Attachments tab will show details of all the attachments that were requested.

Please note that you will have to have one of the Visual Studio Team System client roles or Team Explorer installed on your machine. You can get Team Explorer from here but I'll need point you the Licensing White Paper for TFS because you will need a Client Access Licence to use the server.

So why the silly name - its supposed to be based on the noise you make when you find a bug - well it would be if you were in a Batman cartoon!
