Provide customization for test plan, test results
I would like to customize a test plan and add new fields to it. I should be able to customize test result values - like adding Not Applicable to passed/ failed/ blocked. I should be able to customize the test failure reason on a failing test case
Having "Failure Type" and "Resolution" fields to classify a result would be great IF I could edit and customize the list of values for each field.
The current list of values is fixed is not used, is misleading or is just overhead when the values don't fit the needs of the project team.
This is currently in the feature team’s backlog
The first one (result values) should definitely be made customizable. The second one, in its current state, is a huge handicap for organizations considering switching to MTM for test management that are already using other VS/TFS tools and cannot turn back time to recreate their projects.

The old Test Result list with multiple columns could show stuff like project and error message. I am constantly looking for that info. But more importantly, I could open up an entire window with the results from a single test. Now I just get a tiny part of a window that I cannot even select+copy from.
I have merged the 2 ideas so that folks wanting this functionality can use thier votes optimally.
