Moving branch/folder in TFS should keep & display all change history of old branch_name folder at the new branch_name folder
After renaming a branch (for re-organisation purpose), some or most of change history used to be seen in the old branch_name folder is no longer seen in the new branch name folder.10 votes
I have create a standard environment using test manager, and successfully create new build deployment that use this environment.
My problem, when I connect to different team project, I have to create a new environment since the first one exists for the first team project. And the problem is I can’t create a new environment that use same test agent that used in the first environment.
I think this is a normal case, since we always use same machine to test multiple application.10 votes
I am constantly wanting to open up items that are in source control in a text editor. the way I do this today is, in Source Control Explorer:
-right-click on the item, select "Windows Explorer"
-Windows Explorer opens. I shift+right-click on the item and select "Copy as path"
seems to be this should just be one step. I would like to right-click on the item in Source Control explorer and say "Copy local path to clipboard".10 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 :-)

It's relatively simple to compare two folders, but I haven't found an easy way to export that to a text file or an easily queryable excel file. Youc an get there from the command line (with some work), but there's also no easy way to copy/paste all the command line parameters from the UI or to invoke the modify filter dialog from the command line.10 votes
Using Team Foundation Service, Scrum 2.0.
A Product Backlog Item (PBI) can be marked as Done, even when the child tasks it is linked to are In Progress.
I understand there could be a discussion around Definition of Done here, but I think it would be a better experience if an error message or warning was shown.
This would be more in line with what happens elsewhere in Team Foundation Service. For example, when a Task is moved from Done to In Progress ... an elegant message appears, a great experience!10 votes
Currently the build agent writes a message like:
"The Fixed In field was updated as part of associating work items with the build."
You should be able to change that message.10 votes
It is a constant source of frustration for our users that they are unable to use the Kanban Column field in work item queries. This field is recorded in the history of a work item whenever it is moved from one Kanban column to another but this information is not available to be used for reporting purposes. This would allow various additional Kanban metrics to be easily produced.10 votes
I'd love to be able to create Work Items linked to a specific spot in source code.
I maintain legacy projects, and often spot areas for improvement. But there's no easy way to anchor a Work Item to a specific block of source code.
I'd love to be able to highlight a block of code, right-click, Create Work item, and have the Work Item associated with that code, so opening the work item would take me straight to it.
The Task List is close to what I want, but doesn't get me credit for closing bugs :)10 votes
While looking to a source code, sometimes we need to get latest version from server. If we want to achieve this, we need to go to Solution Explorer and find the appropriate file than right click and select "Get Latest Version".
But i think if there is a menu item in context menu at Source Code View and if i need to get latest version than i can easily right click and select Get Latest Version; so i didn't need to look for the file at Solution Explorer.
This will be good at huge projects10 votes
make it possible to build the setup project (InstallShield Limited) on TFS online, so we can do continuous integration
We are using the TFS online, and we are doing continuous integration. But the problem is that the setup project (InstallShield Limited) cannot be built on the TFS online. So we must publish new version manually, that's not good practice for continuous integration.10 votes
I like the "team members" Sprint Board but it shows the Team Member name twice rather than showing the Name of the parent work item. When team members are assigned tasks such as "Code Review", you must open each item to find the one that links to the correct parent work item. The backlog items board shows both Parent and User Assignment and it would be useful if the team members board showed the opposite information.10 votes
When one user authorizes another to their TFS or VSO project, they do so by email address. But if the address they specify is a secondary alias on my LiveID, the authorization does not work. It only works if the address is my primary Alias. If the alias is "confirmed" through my LiveID (msAccount), then authorization should work.10 votes

Provide a way to filter the list of items in the product backlog (under Work – Backlog) on the web view
When our product owner is doing planning, he may want to filter out Technical Stories and/or look for stories with a particular keyword. It would be nice to be able to apply a filter or query to this view to make it easier to locate backlog items.10 votes
We are using Team Explorer Everywhere(TEE 2013) with the Eclipse IDE.
When we try to edit work items that have an HTML field from Eclipse, we realized that there is no "insert image" button in the HTML field toolbar. This button is present in Team Web Access and Visual Studio. This creates an inconsistency among the clients.10 votes
We have an sln with two web applications (MVC4 front end and MVC4 Web API services layer), and need to deploy them to two separate Azure Cloud Services via cloud TFS. Currently, the build will only deploy one of the web applications, despite having separate Azure Deployment projects, with separate publishing profiles.10 votes
It would be great if Visual Studio could automatically create a GitHub repository for me and commit a TFS repository to it, and then use a Git source control plugin from then on.10 votes
On the work items screen there is a work item pane that's great for quick views/edits to work items.
Added this or something similar would really enhance a product owners productivity when managing the backlog.10 votes
It is on our backlog.
