Sometimes i need to see label or changesets of an item.
But there is no easy way to do this. Everytime i have to use Get Specific Version to list labels or changesets.
I think if there is a screen to search and list changesets and labels will be very good.18 votes
I would like to have a custom team work schedule for handling the capacity of the team in the current sprint. I have a situation where some teams work in the weekends which doesn´t count for the capacity measure.
It would be nice to define the correct work week, setting the weekdays which work is allowed and how many hours.18 votes
Please fix Team Explore to have pending changes and source control, etc available without going to home!!!
Having selection of the project not through sub menu would be very usefull when working across multiple projects!!!
And please add seach or select for the work item in the pending changes dialog!!!17 votes
Provide the ability to check out and check-in files directly through Team System Web Access in a manner similar to other source control systems such as PVCS. This would provide completely "thin-client" source control access rather than requiring all users that interact with TFS Source Control to install the Visual Studio client.17 votes
As described in my post on the msdn TFS forums, not having aggregate functions like min(), max() makes certain query scenarios impossible at the moment, see http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/tfsworkitemtracking/thread/58032a70-547d-420f-80df-64173726eb63/17 votes
Custom controls were a good idea that was not fully implemented. Because the control has to find its way to the user via a separate route, most people don't want to use them. (It is not worth the risk that a user will not have the control.)
Provide a robust way that custom controls can be registered with the TFS Server and automatically downloaded to clients who need them.17 votes
Thanks for the feedback, Stephen. We know that this is a major painpoint for those developing custom controls and we’re looking at a better deployment solution in the future.
SourceGear Vault's client app has the ability to background search for changes. This is very useful because at any time I can take a quick peek and see what changes my team members have checked in and that I need to get latest on. This is also helpful for previewing any merges that might be necessary. And on a day to day basis, it helps me get a sense of what parts of the codebase are seeing the most churn. I know there is a Compare feature, but it takes way too long to be useful.17 votes
If there is a long title of a work item which does not fit on a stickie on the board it will not show a visual marker like "..." as a reminder there is more text in the title than is showed.
On several other places in TFS this behaviour does seem to be in place. But still not on the work item titles on the board.17 votes
We often share our test process with our customers. Our customers do their own acceptance tests and some even do a bit of system test (in addition to what we do) during a project. If we could keep all test cases related to a project in one central space, it would add tremendous value. Our customers do not have Microsoft Test Manager, nor do they have Visual Studio. So if we could provide a web interface (i. e. “Team Foundation Service”) through which our customers could manage their test cases without requiring Microsoft Test Manager, we would be able to track our customers’ test progress the way we track our own and we would have all test cases managed from one confined space.
The inability to add and change test steps on a test case is currently blocking us from sharing our test case repository with our customers and I think providing the ability to add and change test steps without requiring Microsoft Test Manager would push HP Quality Center over the edge.

When I'm producing lots of work items at the same moment my UI dialog process is to open a new work item, fill in the fields, and save and close. And this in a repeating fashion. It would be very nice to have a "Save and give me a new work item immediately" button next to the "Save" and "Save and close" button.
This saves a lot of time! Off course this could be sprinkled throughout TFS and MTM.16 votes
Zendesk is a popular ticketing software. It would be useful if there is ability to add bugs/taks from Zendesk tickets.16 votes
Thanks for the idea, Qaiser. Integration with popular ticketing software like Zendesk is on our backlog for investigation for a future release.
Good idea is integrate codeplex.com services with tfspreview.com tfs services.
Developer can store code in tfspreview.com and you can decide which is visible to everyone (your own license), which one is open source and public on codeplex.com, and which one is private.16 votes
Thank you for this suggestion. This is something that Brian Harry as posted about: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/bharry/archive/2012/03/22/the-future-of-codeplex-is-bright.aspx
In Visual Studio 2012 Pending changes tool window is part of Team Explorer tool window. It's very unusefull. I need to see work items and pending changes at the same time.
Idea: add posibillity to separate pending window from Team Explorer or just separate their.16 votes
We want to switch to Git for our TFS projects.
To do this we really need to option to deploy to Azure cloud services from a git-backed TFS project.
At the moment, we are having to publish builds manually from Visual Studio.16 votes
I really like Team Foundation Service, but I keep find I get drawn back to GitHub for Open Source projects.
I realise CodePlex already exists, but they don't have the full TFS facilities (Build etc).
I would like to see the ability to have public projects for our Open Source work.16 votes
Sometimes tasks can affect more than one team project, or can be merely general and not bound to a specific place where to implement them. Thus it would be nice to be able to share tasks amongst team projects. For managing capacities of members, who work on different team projects concurrently, it would be nice to have at least an overview of the whole work assigned to a member.16 votes
Please indicate the state of the parent work items (first column in each row) on the Scrum board. This would help us in our planning meetings (identifying which items have been committed by the team), standups (is this really done or are we missing a task), and demos.
A text label in the bottom-left corner would be great. If you want to build on this request and use color to indicate then that's fine too.
This is on our backlog
In Team Foundation Services Preview there is a very nice Sprint Burndown chart.
What I miss is a Release Burndown. I have a backlog with 100 stories for release 1.5 of my product. I would like to see a v1.5 burndown.
If I place sprints under v1.5 iteration path I can see a 1.5 backlog but the chart to the top right only shows Velocity over sprints. I would like to see 1.5 burndown.
This was available in previous versions, why was it omitted from the 2012 web version of TFS?15 votes
