Running Builds Remotely
Using remote run feature you can perform your personal build bypassing the version control system to test how your changes integrate into the project's code. Unlike pre-tested commit, no code is checked into the version control system regardless of the state of the initiated personal build.
You can observe the build status in the My Changes tab of the TeamCity tool window similar to the following screen:
