TFS 2013 Access Level for Team Web Access features

Using TFS as a client need a TFS Client Access License (CAL), in old version of TFS (TFS 2010) there was a built in group called TFS Work Item Only View (WIOV) that we can use for all people that we don’t want them to have CAL and they will be able to create work items and only see what they created, see the following image from TFS item only view WIOV

In TFS 2012 and TFS 2013, this was introduce through Access Level it’s also controlled the features that we want to enable for them not only from license perspective but also from security or restriction perspective as well.
Limited Access TFS 2013
Standard Access TFS 2013
Full Access TFS 2013

Remember that we can change the default Access Level so I don’t need every time to create a project to go to Access Level and assign this level.
