Customize Process Template on Visual Studio Online
In Visual Studio Online, allow the ability to change the current process template a created project is using as well as the ability to upload your own process templates to create new projecsts with.
Just want to be able to add fields to a work item.
It seems like hosted TFS service does not yet support process template customization.
Can you please allow that ...like work type definition edit using Power Tools 2012.
So that I can export file locally...edit the WIT (work item types),edit the wit and import the edited WIT tlo the service.
Please do let me know if it's supported.
It doesn't seem to be supported for me.
Should be self-explanatory, but if an owner wants additional fields on a Bug work item for How Found, Customer, etc, then they can do it. If they want a Request work item for feature requests, then they can do that as well.
I currently don't see a way to do this on the TFSPreview.com site.
ALl scrum teams where I have been in the dashboard there is always a To be tested column, or a To Verify column. At least that part of the process template should be editable or customizable.
At the moment, this is an impediment for my team to use tfs preview.
The tfspreview.com hosted TFS solution is great, but we cannot save changes made via the process editor. So we are stuck with the default states and transitions for workitem types.
There is still no way to track work items using witadmin command tool for TFS on Azure, suggest implement this feature.
We are investigating how we can enable customizations of the work items on the service, as well as using your own process templates.

we can work without it but it causes quite a bit of confusion as the templates don't match our process ...

It is incredibly important for us as well.

Its already been said but this is a must for us to consider adopting VSO
Jeff Rash commented
Simply incredible that this functionality is still not available, as it is a huge limitation.

Why is this very important work item under review for last 1+ yr? Its time to move away from MS VS archaic behemoth
When will this be added?

This should include the fetures mentioned in this user voice also: http://visualstudio.uservoice.com/forums/121579-visual-studio/suggestions/5025675-allow-wit-editing-for-vsonline
We have been living with this serious limitation for too long!! When will this be added?
Not having this feature is making me seriously consider an alternative tool
Must have this!!!
Any updates on the progress?

A must have! We currently have to use kludges to make the system work.

This feature is holding us up from migrating fully to VSO.

Due dates and estimated/total hours at least would be a nice addition. We tend to do our estimating via hours rather than points.
Absolute essential. Need ASAP
