Automatic Import & Scaling Image Functionalities Available?

Wondering if this tool is capable of the following functionalities OR if anyone has been able to find creative ways around this:

1. Automate imports from TFS to WORD? For example, create an automated import daily at a specific time and save it at X location.

2. Scale down images before importing. We are saving our images into SharePoint and then copying and pasting into the TFS, then importing from TFS to WORD using this tool. Would there be a way to preserve any resizing of images from TFS into WORD prior to import OR does it always pull from the SharePoint location?

3. Is there a way to import from TFS to WORD while creating hyperlinks back to TFS? for example if I importing an image or some text and wanted to know the source, would the import be able to list the hyperlink for the location?

1. Several people have requested a feature where it can be added to an automated build, but I don't know of a way to do it at the moment.

2. The addin just pastes the HTML coming out of TFS into a rich text content control, so it depends to a large extent on what is in the HTML.

3. Again, it depends on what is in the HTML that comes out of TFS. One of the things on the backlog is to add a hyperlink back to the work item in TFS when a work item is imported, not sure if that helps?
