As a user I would like to have Close (and Minimize) button on the splash screen like in MS Office 2013 so that I can gracefully kill the application if needed.
With a few plugins e.g. ReSharper load time increases significantly and I wish I didn’t have to wait the app to load before I can close it – especially if I launched it accidentally.3 votes
The Visual C++ compiler has gotten better at rooting out unreachable code, and can now be surprisingly sophisticated at it. When it does, you get the bare warning message "warning C4702: unreachable code".
The reason that the flagged code is unreachable can be subtle, maddeningly hard to find, and sometimes nearby but not on the line actually marked.
Some other C++ messages have gotten very good about adding useful additional information to help identify the error. For C4702, something, anything, would be better than the complete silence it has now.1 vote

Be friendly to users not directy connected to internet for VS2014. When trial license expires guess where it goes ...
Take account of the fact that some envionments (both dev and production) cannot access the web directly (ie after trial period expries it needs to access directly). Glad to see that IE10 is not mandatory for VS14, but optional, again our environment our large user base is constrianed to IE8 (I have no sway over this!!)1 vote
Permission to stack rank the backlog so that only selected group or groups can change it in taskboard
Restrict a group of users to allow stack ranking from Backlog and other users must not be allowed to change stack ranking -
It can be done in UI for stack rank field but not in board.
But same time when user goes to Backlog and changes the Stack Rank by moving user stories from one position to another, he is able to do that.
I confirmed this is not available and I was asked to raise an user voice1 vote
We have a few builds in the one team project, In a particular HipChat room, there are some that we care about, and some that we don't, configuring a bunch of service hooks all the same is tedious. It would be nice to be able to select the relevant builds from a list.1 vote
Using the Visual Studio 2013 in Windows Embedded OS would make it easier and faster to resolve issues in the C++ embedded application. In some cases the network or other connection to the embedded system is not possible or it requires significant changes to the embedded device. These changes may affect to the issue that is under investigation and may make it hard to repeat and identify the issue.7 votes
currently I have to click the slider and move it, or click repeatedly below or above it to reach a position.
Nowadays, using Resharper, flags are displayed on the scrollbar - so sometimes I know exactly the position I want to reach... fast.
How about allowing a double click to move the slider instantly to the desired position?

This is small but a needed change in my eyes. The color of the icon from the web portal and the build notification gadget are not consistent. As you can see the icon in the web portal is blue (which is i think the way it should be). The build notification gadget has a green icon. This causes the icon not to stand out from the completed builds which are also green.1 vote
Cloak/Exclude folders in Source Settings in tfs 2013 build definition from Team Foundation Git repository
When a build definition is monitoring all branches under a Git repository, I should be able to exclude a folder from the monitoring list? I would like to, for example, exclude the 'BuildProcessTemplates' folder from the monitoring list that lives under the Git repository.
The attached image shows Source Settings section of the build definition where the build definition is monitoring all the branches under the Git repository.1 vote
My suggestion is to add a inline try catch syntax similar to the ternary operator.
var divideResult = try a/b catch 0;
If b was zero the divide by zero would be caught and the divide result would be set to zero.
It could also mimic the null coalesce syntax e.g. var divideResult = a/b !! 0;1 vote
Many applications that communicate with low-powered hardware need a way to verify the received data. CRC32 is a well-known, lightweight check value which is better suite to verify short data.
.Net already has an implementation of this check value with (System.IO.Compression.Crc32Helper, System.IO.Compression, Version=18.104.22.168, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089) but this class has an internal ac cess modifier and can't be used by user code.
My proposition is to make the Crc32Helper class public.1 vote

Fakes and Shims are only useful if every developer in the team is able to use it to enhance their unit tests. Limiting its availability to just Architects and Senior developers (who usually have Premium or Ultimate level subscriptions) sounds like such a bad idea. This is killing the power of such potentially amazing tool! Please consider this.

It is really a common requirement, in my experience, for LOB systems to provide support for human workflows (tasklists & queues).
Currently, to achieve this with WF, requires a lot of up-front custom code to be developed. It would be especially helpful if this could be released with out-of-the-box ASP.Net MVC integration.8 votes
