  1. Make it a one-click step to delete a connection to a Team Foundation Server

    Currently removing Windows credentials for logging onto a TFS server, plus removing that server from the list of servers, removing references to that TFS server from the registry plus the VS2012 settings file and even taking the additional step of setting source control to 'none' isn't enough to keep VS2012 from continually attempting to login to the last TFS used at startup.

    • Improve Class diagram Usability

      Hi,

      I would like give suggestion in VS that is as below:

      1. In class diagram – class details window it will be good if we show the number of functions, properties in the [] e.g. Methods [3], Properties [10] etc. It will help us to cross verity whether we have added the number of function or properties as defined in technical document or not.

      2. Allow multiple Properties, Methods, Fields Copy and paste from clipboard or into clipboard (At least names so that we can define other properties)

      3. Also add one more column , showing icon to add…

      • Setup up groups, and permission on the my custom process template portal.

        On my custom process template, I can create groups and set permissions of the work items and projects.
        What I also need is to create the groups and permission for the SharePoint site libraries.

        • I want to add lists on the SharePoint Portal of my custom process template

          When designing my custom process template portal, I can only add document libraries and the documents that will be placed in them.
          Actually what I need more is to build a my own custom list with the my own custom fields.

          • On TeamProjectOverview site show Backlog effort and Burndown of parallel iterations

            Hi,
            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.
            Kind regards,
            Michael

            • Edit And Continue without pausing execution

              Visual Studio has Edit And Continue, but I have to pause the program to change the code, which isn't very convenient. Eclipse (or the Java Virtual Machine?) has a feature that lets you change code while debugging without pausing execution. All you have to do is hit Ctrl+S to apply the code changes.
              Please add something similar to what Eclipse does when debugging.

              • Best Practices

                One of my frustrations as a developer in this rapidly changing world is deciding which technology to use. Sure, if I did nothing but read technical journals it would be easy, but that is a big IF. So when I want to create a new project and I have too MANY choices. If I'm creating a NEW project I don't want to have outdated options. I don't want to create an MVC 3 application, thank you very much, because I'm *assuming* that Microsoft made MVC 4 to be the better choice. Tonight I had to decide if my MVC 4…

                • Add a setting to make "rebuild solution" pop up a confirmation dialogue

                  It is currently far too easy to do a rebuild instead of a build by mistake. When having a large solution that takes 0.5-1h to build from scratch this can be very unnoying and time consuming. I ask that you add a confirmation dialogue when doing rebuild. To not bother people working with smaller solutions where it does not really matter, this could be turned on by a setting.

                      • Custom AOP Aspects implementation and aspect-weaver using Roslyn

                        Roslyn is a very open compiler framework which could be used to implement AOP aspect-weaver at compile time instead of using Dependency Injection containers at run time which is not good for many scenarios.

                        • Provide Central Overview of ALL Projects in the Team Foundation Service and allow Capacity to be set as a global value for each Member

                          The Team Foundation Service would be an even more powerful tool to be able to see and set what the entire Teams capacity is in one place. This is for ease of project planning as opposed to setting this at the point of a sprint. Allow a central capacity value for each member and combine the Member remaining capacity in each project to stop over allocating or double booking a Member.

                                    • Importing Testcases to MTM tool

                                      There are couple of power tools available in market to import testcases from Excel to Team Fondation Server. However, there are no working tool available to import testcases written in Microsoft Word Document (.doc/docx).
                                      Test Migrator Plus claims to suport importing of tests from word document but it doesn't work.

                                      It would be good to have a tool which supports importing of tests from Miicrosoft Word Document as most of the process templates are created as word document (.doc/.docx) in many of the industries.

                                      • Add Style Rule

                                        I have notices that Add Style Rule is missing in VS 2012. It was present in VS 2010. Could this feature be added to VS 2012?

                                        • Option for exporting test results with the actuals in MTM tool

                                          There is no option available to export test results along with the comments/actual results entered during manual test execution.
                                          But, most of the companies demand the tesport along with actual results as part of quality process.

                                          Ideally, the quality process expects the following as part of test report:

                                          Testcase ID
                                          Testcase name
                                          Test Step/Action
                                          Expected Results
                                          Actual Results/Comments
                                          LInks if any
                                          Machine details: May be Operating systemm information will be enough
                                          Build details

                                          We can acheive this by creating our own SSRS schema and deploying it on TFS server. However, it would be good to have an option at Test…
