1. Queue build in TFS 2010 if there is not build in TFS 2010.
2. Open global list through process editor.
3. Builds already queued in TFS 2010 show in global list Builds node.
4. Upgrade TFS 2010 to TFS 2012. 
5. Open global list through process editor.
The result is builds from TFS 2010 do not show in the global list Builds node. Only builds queued in TFS 2012 show in the list.

This issue has been classified as "by design" by the product team. This behavior is due to a change in TFS 2012 that changed the format of the build names, which made it incompatible with those in 2010.

Currently, we cannot offer an official workaround, however there are some community projects to mitigate the issue. See below for an example:

Hi CSSForumEngineer,

I am trying to repro this bug. However, I am not sure what "Open global list through process editor" means. Could you please step me through exactly what you are clicking on and in what application you are doing this.
