How to enable the backlog view in TFS 2012 Web Access
Q: Why is the backlog view missing in TFS 2012 Web Access?
A: In TFS 2012, web access permissions control what Web Access features are available to users. By default users get “Standard” permissions.

Note: Make sure that all users with “Full” permission have either Visual Studio Premium, Ultimate or Test Professional (more info can be found here).
