  1. TFS Feedback Client create off-line importable data

    TFS feed back clients must perform in TFS and test environment are connected in a network.

    We can't feed back data generated by using client feed back in the TFS and test environment is not connected in the network environment.

    More so, for using TFS feed back clients and generating transferable data offline client feed back a possible capture TFS, TFS side importing feature, an isolated network environment that can I get use to the user.

      • Keep regions collapsed on cut/paste

        If you cut and then paste a collapsed region, it should stay collapsed. This would be nice when you're cutting/pasting multiple regions.

        • Cookies Manipulation in Windows 8 Store Apps

          Currently there is no access to the received cookies of an XHR request.
          Some internet services (Google Music for example) pass variables this way which you need to use them in further request, NOT in the headers.

          Suggesting that developers should have access to cookies. Currently, cookies are handled by the underlying Metro layer.

              • Add 'are you sure' dialog to TFS 'Take Server Version' conflict resolution

                I was just working over VPN and needed to get the latest from TFS, there were some conflicts and the slightly twitchy nature or VPN led me to accidentally click 'Take Server Version' on a conflict, this instantly undid my checkout and lost some important pending changes and I can't see any way to get them back.

                A dialog to confirm the action and prevent this kind of thing would have been incredibly useful.

                • Implement a way for people to recall comments in TFS

                  I've accidently saved comments made to bugs in the TFS a number of times.. But unfortuneately there is no way for me to recall my errant comments.

                  Consider implementing a way for people to recall comments made in the History section of items in TFS.

                    • To make macros more usable.

                      Macros are really nice tools to template classes and later change them globally, but the lack of support from visual studio discourages it's usage. Let the developer to debug macros, let the macro expand to actual code if developer wants so. This is essential part of c++ language, it is a very bad idea to ignore it. Give at least some attention to macros and let debug it, if code expansion would be too much.

                      • Restart As Admin

                        Commonly when working with Azure projects, I need to reload Visual Studio in Administrator mode to get my work done.

                        I'd love to see a feature where I could go "File, Restart as Admin" and Visual Studio would do all the work for me.

                        • Have an option in the Editor to change the 'Font and Colors' setting of selected text

                          When my color settings are not what I want them to be I have to go to Tools -> Options -> Environment -> Fonts and Colors. There I have to find the Item I want to change. It is hard to find the item which item I'm interested in. While this items is already on my editor screen it would be great to change it there.

                          • Provide a way in which the parameter names from a Shared Step or Test Case can be exported to Microsoft Excel.

                            It's much easier to plan, create and manipulate the data for Parameters in Excel than it is in MTM, It would be ideal if the parameter names could be exported to Excel from a Test Case or Shared Step, and the completed parameter values imported back to the Test Case

                            • Overhaul the look/feel of the UI, it is absolutely horrible

                              Put color and dimention back into the UI elements like VS2010 had, the current UI is too monocromatic and flat looking, something you would see in a product from 20 years ago. We have to use VS2012 but all of our developers hate the way it looks. I see the UI is the same as Office 2013 which is equally horrible. I don't understand how this UI could have gotten into a production tool.

                                  • Store Help Viewer 2.0 favorites as separate files

                                    Help Viewer 2.0 for Visual Studio 2012 stores favorites in an undocumented format. As a consequence, developers who work with several devices are forced to manually recreate each and every favorite on each and every device. I suggest storing favorites as separate files, which then could be automatically synchronized across devices.

                                    (As a workaround available today, one could give up local help entirely and store all favorites as online bookmarks in the browser and sync from there. However, viewing help in the browser is much less productive than vieweing help in a specialized local viewer).

                                      • Windows Live / Skydrive / Office Live / Hotmail Integration?

                                        Forgive me if this is stupid but is it possible to incorporate the cloud apps Windows Live / Skydrive / Office Live / Hotmail into the developer interface as options in the properties tab.
                                        - Generate any user account creation screens upon deployment.
                                        - Use calander for schedualing and generate base entitiies and generic screens.
                                        - In browser connection to word, excel, and power point.
                                        - Docs stored on Sky Drive.
                                        - Import from Excel from Sky Drive.
                                        - Deploy as Windows Live Website option?

                                        • Make the deployment system in MS-Test optional

                                          MS-Test builds all dlls and exes in a solution and collects them into a "deployment" folder for each test run. It omits copying content files. You must use the DeploymentItem attribute on tests to include contect files.

                                          I propose that this behaviour be optional. That is, when disabled, MS-Test should act like the NUnit test runner and run tests in the project output folder. The downside is that there will be no test run history, which is fine.
