How to: Access Process Guidance in the Project Portal

The team project portal is the central location for viewing the status of the team project and accessing the critical documents for performing your assigned tasks. The process guidance documents explain the complete software development life cycle that the team is to follow. The process guidance documents also may explain the various Web Parts that appear on the project portal for each team project.

You can access the process guidance through either the Quick Launch navigation pane or through the list of team project documents.
