Switch project, repository, team

Azure DevOps Services | Azure DevOps Server 2019 | TFS 2018 | TFS 2017

Several features depend on the project, repository, or team that you have selected. For example, dashboards, backlogs, and board views will change depending on the project and team you select.

For example, when you add a work item, the system references the default area and iteration paths defined for the team context. Work items you add from the team dashboard (new work item widget) and queries page are assigned the team default iteration. Work items you add from a team backlog or board, are assigned the team default backlog iteration. To change team defaults, see Set team defaults.

View and open a project

From the Projects page you can quickly navigate to a project that you have permissions to view.

Note

Your web portal uses either the New navigation or Previous navigation user interface. Choose the New navigation tab if the New Navigation feature is enabled. You'll see a vertical sidebar along with other navigational features when New Navigation has been enabled for the signed-in user or the organization. Choose Previous navigation when you see a top-level, blue-bar—indicating that New navigation isn't enabled.

Note

Choose the New navigation tab for guidance. Azure DevOps Server 2019 supports the New Navigation user interface.

Note

Choose the Previous navigation tab for guidance. TFS 2018 and earlier versions only support the previous navigation user interface.
