TFS Intergration platform support for migrating 2008 to 2013.
I nee a way to transfer source code and workitems from TFS 2008 to TFS 2013.
Does the TFS Intergration platform support this? If not, when will it?10 votes
When activating Annotate View for a source file, then one can see what revisions changed what parts of the current code.
It would be useful to be able to right-click a code-part-revision and choose "Show Annotate View before this revision". It would then activate a new Annotate View base on the version history from just before the specified revision.10 votes
Please add the option for visual studio online to import/add extensions like the task board enhancer so that we won't be punished to use visual studio online instead of a local installation of tfs2013

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
We find it a little overkill to require UAT testers to have a VS Test Pro with MSDN subscription simply to be able to record the steps and findings of their tests.
It would be a good and useful idea to create an exception for UAT testers to be allowed access to the test section of TWA to create test scripts and record their results. At the very least, they should have access to be able to record results against a test script that was created by an MSDN subscriber.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
Add more standard themes to the TFS web portal, especially one with dark background colors like the standard dark theme in Visual Studio.10 votes
We love TFS, especially since you seem to be moving more MTM functionality over to Web Access (Shared Test Cases & Parameters). I also enjoy the new homepage, as a lot of data can be displayed there via queries and charts... But, the lack of test results being readily view-able, troubles me. I know I can go into the test tab to see this; I know that I can go into the project portal for this data. But why not have it as a user-configurable option on the homepage? Why can't I have a query displaying the number of failed test cases in the current iteration? Why can't I have a chart displaying the Pass/Fail of the current iterations test pass or UAT? Information is king and ever since 2010, there seems to be a resistance by MSFT to giving access to this data in web access. We have data mining tools that accomplish this for us, but it is not clean, and it is not user-friendly. I want to see that user-configurable option available to all TFS web access users (with proper rights of course) on the Home Page. Thanks:)

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
Support the XNA Framework on the Hosted Build Service! It's a MS framework, and would allow small game developers to make use of the Hosted Build Service.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

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
