Hey all

 

I am looking for "For Dummies" steps regarding integrating my desktop MS Project instance with Azure Boards.

 

I've tried to follow these instructions https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/devops/boards/backlogs/office/create-your-backlog-tasks-using... but there is a gap in them.

 

It advises to install VS2019 as it automatically installs relevant integration tools, but when i start the process  there is dozens and dozens of individual components to choose from.

 

Is there a simple, straight forwards way to install whatever the office integration tool is to enable my MS Project to connect to my azure board?
