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.
Allow Team Foundation Service to be configured to link to a SharePoint portal. Either a On Premises deployment or a SharePoint Online / Office 365 deployment
When provisioning a Team Foundation Service account, automatically link it with a folder in the Skydrive of the owner of the TFS account.
As I create projects and teams, any user with access to that project should automatically get corresponding access to the skydrive folder for that project.
Then on the "Attached files" section I would have an option to "attach from skydrive". This will create a link in the attachment UI to the desired document.
Example: I create a Task in TFS. Link it to a one note page. This gives me real time collaboration on the notes for that task. Same applies for Word, Excel, PowerPoint documents.
Hosting SharePoint is a pain for a small company, so SharePoint Online is a good option.
We need the offline version of SharePoint for our TFS connection with it.
It would be great if either tfs.visualstudio.com or TFS 2012 can connect to SharePoint Online.
TFService is a wonderfull tool for small teams, but it would be even greater if it was possible to integrate with Sharepoint, which is impossible as of now (Spent about 5 hours to discover this, was too hopeful, I guess..)
As in TFS enable Sharepoint for TFS Preview as part of the setup template. With TFS preview the costs of hosting TFS will be much reduced. It would be good to see a link between TFS and Office 365 - Sharepoint online so that a richer document store can be used as in the on-premise server version of TFS.
I want to save my projects in Skydrive and load them from right there. The full project resides in cloud and accessible directly through Visual Studio. But we should also be able to open or edit files as plain text files directly within browser. Almost like office files. There should be some optional mercurial-like source code control with it. This is a appreciated but closed suggestion in Microsoft connect- http://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/feedback/details/468278/loading-and-saving-projects-in-live-skydrive-account
I will be useful to integrate TFS with Office 365.

Integration between VSO and Office 365 will certainly lead to a 365 degree view of all the artifacts and activities. Very much needed.
Does Project Online work with TFS Online currently?
Any progress in this? I thought this feature will be available by default!!???

It would be great if it could be integrated with "office 365."

@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.
Brian Butcher commented
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.
+1 on this. has this happened yet?
Ben Weeks commented
Agreed. A real shame at least organisational accounts can't be used yet.
If folks have SkyDrive account, it seems easy to use :) and I love "real-time" collaboration.
This is a great idea but does that mean our customers also require to have a skydrive account?
Cloud TFS solves the issue :)

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!
This really needs implementation!
