  • Open requests in Pulse inside Visual Studio.
  • Relate requests to changes.
  • Commit changes to a repository.

Display and open requests

  1. From the View menu select Team Explorer.
  2. Open the Dimensions CM repository that contains the changes.
  3. Click Changes and expand Dimensions Requests.
