How to enable the backlog view in TFS 2012 Web Access

Q: Why is the backlog view missing in TFS 2012 Web Access?

Where's the backlog tab gone?

A: In TFS 2012, web access permissions control what Web Access features are available to users. By default users get “Standard” permissions.

Here’s how to fix it: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/visualstudioalm/archive/2012/06/04/enabling-feedback-requests-the-backlog-and-sprint-planning-in-team-foundation-server-2012.aspx

Web Access Permissions control what features from Web Access are available to users.

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