“Basically two scenarios are supported with TFS 2010 and Project 2010 – First there’s a “lightweight” scenario which enables Project Manager to connect his/her plan to TFS using desktop ribbon menu entitled “Team” (picture below) - a project manager can simply sync with Project Server 2010 to better connect the worlds of project and portfolio management and app development.
