Sitecore TDS Packages vs Sitecore packages

I am new to Sitecore and TDS. Are the packages created by TDS the same as the packages created by Sitecore Package Designer? If not what is the difference. Plus how do I create a package using TDS. From what I saw TDS creates “Update Packages” although I am not sure what this means.


Thanks for reaching out on our Pagerduty community page, can you elaborate a bit more on this one or any issues you are having with getting your account set up?

We’d be more than happy to advise.
