in our TeamProject we have several teams that work in parallel and therefore also have different iterations/sprint dates. The TeamProjectOverview site in WebAccess only shows Backlog and Burndown of the first started iteration, but our managers would like to have all current iterations.
Nearly all WIQL operators can be negated, except for the "In" operator. IMHO there's a need for a "Not In" operator, the negated version of the "In" operator, returning true if a field value is not in the specified list of values.9 votes
As you did in TFserver it would be very useful to do the same in the Web page on Team Foundation Service.
I mean, direct paste into work item Description to allow for showing images in line.
Of course in History tab could be very cool as well, keeping a History images as well as text.9 votes
Right now in TFS you can only create alerts that will be sent to the whole team. As my team consists of developers, testers, managers, etc. not everyone wants to know that e.g. a build has failed.
Therefore it would be great if you can enter multiple email addresses for each alert individually or if you could select a TFS group that will receive this alert.9 votes
In the backlog of TFS 2012 you can reorganize the priorities using drag and Drop. It would be nice to also support defining parent child relation using drag and drop. This also goes for the Spint page where you should be able to prioritize the Tasks and even drag a Task from one parent to another. Currently we use Urban Turtle with TFS 2010 and have these options. I would like to keep them.9 votes
The autocreate of backlog priority in TFS preview when entering stories is a bit misleading, I cannot see the rationale for the numbers. it would be better to default to zero so I know those that have been ranked and those that haven't been
Please make it easier to fail the build if the code coverage is lower then a given %.
The community and MS itself focus more and more on the code quality (see the checkin-policies for code-reviews etc.) but a basic indication for failing quality as low code coverage from unittests isn't a trigger to fail a build.
To accomplish this we now have to edit the build-template or create our own build task.
I think this is a relative small efford for MS and a huge help for the community to develop better unit tests and better code.9 votes
Currently you can't report off of the TFS Service. Enterprises need various metrics - it isn't an optional thing. This would give enterprises the ability to mine their data from the TFS Service.

When clicking on the export to outlook icon from Team Explorer, it would be good if this would also submit the work item to the default email client, in my case Lotus notes.9 votes
The current buildserver on tfs.visualstudio.com does not include “Office 2013 and SharePoint 2013 Developer Tools Preview for Visual Studio 2012 RTM", meaning that SharePoint 2013 Apps cannot be builded on the buildserver.
Please include this tool on buildserver - or make me use my own buildserver image in azure - or something in between :-)

Would like the ability to migrate TFS On-Premise to TFS Cloud Services. We have been using TFS for years now and want to keep our customizations and history.9 votes
A checkBox or numericUpDown when creating a backlog item to automatic create tasks. After creating the backlog item the user is automatically lead to the relating tasks without further clicks.9 votes
so on the Provide tab, clicking next should enable submit, not close aswell unless no more is to be entered.
Currently having to create multiple items in one feedback then in TFS creating mutiple work items from this response. It would be better to be able to promote the individual response to a work item, either a task or bug.9 votes
We can work with TFS through Internet without a need in a VPN connection. The only problem is a drop location.
The TFS build expects a network share as a drop location, something like \\TFS\BUILDS. This path is included in build reports, "Open Drop Folder" command in Build Explorer, build log, and other places.
The problem is when you are outside of the network you can't access \\TFS\BUILDS network share without a VPN connection.
It would be nice to have an ability to access results of the build (files) remotely.9 votes
We already have a feature on the TFS Service that puts the drops into a store on TFS, we are planning to bring this feature to TFS on-prem.
In my source code has been contains 2 byte characters.
Build service failed build. It may be because the characters are garbled.9 votes
Source tree's once defined can be quite static in structure, however process (and process template) may change dramatically. It would be nice when creating a new project to have it use an existing tree without having to branch.9 votes
TFS Auto-Merge works pretty well for most files, but CSS it seems to have real trouble with. Virtually every time i try to merge my CSS it messes it up. Please imporve the CSS merging and make it more intelligent.9 votes
Automatically associate merged changesets to their original work item so that they can be tracked with "Track Work Items"
Here is the scenario: I code a feature in a feature branch and associate the work item. Later down the rode that feature gets integrated into the main branch prepping for release. If the developer forgets to associate the merge to the original work item, you can't use the "Track Work Item" feature to visualize where that work item ended up in the code base.
I'd like to see something maybe like this:
