Have been searching around the web, but I can't seem to find what I need and I'm loath to put something custom together without definitely ruling out some sort of supported solution.
Due to auditing requirements in our company, all changes require business sign-off/approval before being released to production. The persons doing these approvals are not IT personnel and do not understand a lot about development practices.
We're currently using TFS 2017 Update2 for our build/release processes. There would no appetite for any funding to switch to another product. The email notifications produced from TFS leave a lot to be desired. At times they're even confusing for some of the Developers. Needless to say, these notifications in their current state are not usable for our process.
What we really need is something clean and simple along the lines of
Release Awaiting your Approval
Items in this release
15483 - Add new report to show something new
84158 - Add graph to page that is just showing numbers
We're stumbling along in a journey towards continuous delivery, so quite often these emails would only refer to one item.
Can anyone direct me to something that could be used, or adapted for this?
