TFS – View all pending changes for all users

Team Foundation Server allows you to see who has what file checked out at any time.  If you would like to see a list of files that any TFS User has checked out, follow the steps below:

  1. Open Visual Studio 2008 > Click File > Source Control > Find In Source Control > StatusSelect “Display all checked out” or “Display files checked out to” (to filter changes by user)Hit Find

The screenshots below show the type of results you should expect.  Another great way to get this info is by using Team Foundation Sidekicks. If you go this route, you will be able to export the results to a spreadsheet to make them easier to work with. I had to use this the other day to generate a list of all files that were checked out by multiple users. It was easy to work with the data once I got it in Excel.  If you prefer getting these results from the command line, you can use the tf status command in the Visual Studio 2008 command prompt as another option to view pending changes by TFS Users.
