Provide the ability to run multiple test suites within a test plan in Microsoft Test Manager
Currently Microsoft Test Manager allows running only one test suite at a time within a Test Plan. Real testing of any reasonably large system will result in the creation of multiple test suites within a Test Plan, some of which are likely to be Test suites nested within other Test Suites.
Please provide a way for the user to select multiple any or all Test Suites withing a Test Plan and with a single Run "command"
We found a cute workaround
Apparently if you click run on a certain suite in automation you return and click on another suite. This will queu the next suite to run after the first one

I also need this. I do not understand why this is not implemented yet.
There is a workaround but it's not pretty: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd465192.aspx

Is there an alternative to this, different than adding all the test cases to the root Test Plan?
prashant Desai commented
any alternative for this
Can tcm command or tfs api?
As already pointed this feature is a must have for automation

I haven't even started indepth testing of our new system yet and I've already come across this issue. Please create the functionality to run multiple Test Suites at the same time
Critical for automation!!!
when you run coded UI that is attached to test cases
you want to be able to select several test suites at once for the night run
It is critical for automation that is integrated into test plans work items
you want to be able to select several test suites to run in a night automation run
