Team Foundation Project Contributor

A Team Foundation project contributor generally contributes to a project but has no project administration responsibilities. A Team Foundation project contributor can read and write work items, access the team project portal, and process guidance for a team project. The user who creates a new team project is automatically added as a project administrator. If you want to grant access to other users, you must add them as project contributors. A team project contributor must be a member of the following groups:

  • Team Foundation Project Contributor.

  • Windows SharePoint Services Contributor.
