I suggest you ...

Integrate Office365 and Visual Studio Online

Please integrate Visual Studio Online and Office 365 better, considering that an organization that is interested in Visual Studio Online will be likely to be using Office 365.

Integration should include:
- Authentication - users should be able to use their Office365 accounts and not only LiveID.

- SharePoint site integration - from Visual Studio Online let me configure a site that I can host file sharing from, including the ability to use Office 365 as a SharePoint source. Administrative functionality should be included provided the user has the ability to administer Office365.

- SharePoint site integration, storyboarding - same as above, but specifically to better storyboarding integration. Currently users must manually "go somewhere else" to save their storyboard file, or add it under source control which is not ideal in either case. This should be seamless, especially considering the slightly non-technical nature of the audience for storyboarding.

        Users in VSO (linked to Azure AD) should be recognized as O365. Currently, our resources in VSO are not automatically recognized in PWA even though they share the same email and have an E3 in O365. We could use clearer documentation on working through enterprise projects that rely on VSO for managing the Scrum development lifecycle. There is some guidance on connecting TFS (on-premise) to Project Server (on-premise), but very little on a VSO to PWA integration.

        Integration between VSO and Office 365 will certainly lead to a 365 degree view of all the artifacts and activities. Very much needed.

        @Justin: This was something you were passionate about enabling 2 years ago. Where is it sitting at this point in terms of your planning?

        Would really love this, especially if SharePoint was hosted in the cloud too, so that we could use Team Foundation Service with all the benefits of a Document Library as well.

        This is a priority for us as we cannot look at moving our onsite TFS server to this hosted service until we can control user access through our Office365 Organisational Accounts.

        A way of linking MSDN subscriptions to organisational accounts will also be required at some stage.

        It might be good to separate the Authentication issue from the other suggestions in this post. I would give all of my votes to that item as a top priority.

        This is critically important to an enterprise when an employee leaves. Failing to remove TFS access could be disastrous.

        If folks have SkyDrive account, it seems easy to use :) and I love "real-time" collaboration.

      • JaniceJanice commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This is a great idea but does that mean our customers also require to have a skydrive account?

      • James D. SchwarzmeierJames D. Schwarzmeier commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        It seems like we should be able to add Office 365 (OrgId) users to TFS service instead of requiring Microsoft accounts...I suppose that would be #1 on my list of TFS/O365 integration.

        As a Microsoft Dynamics CRM Gold Partner we know how big a mess LiveID is when working with enterprise customers. When CRM Online (CRM hosted by MS) first launched the only option of authentication was LiveID. This simply wasn't suitable for enterprises as there were no way to enforce for instance quaterly change of password, custom retrieval policies etc. and users ALWAYS got confused when ever their coorporate (Active Directory or O365) credentials changed and then suddently their LiveID didn't change along. All in all - a very bad expirience for us and our customers. Now CRM Online is an integrated part of Office 365 and it just works. One password the rule them all and the the enterprise capabilities we know and love. So, PLEASE add Office 365 credentials. That will make our 280 user organization to make the move from TFS On-prem to online. Thanks!
