        Just when I was hopping on the VSO train but were unhappy with the existing process template, you make life better! Awesome.

        The templates are good and useable in most Agile, Scrum, even some light Kanban applications. I really like this tool now over other management tools. You all have some a long way and every enhancement I have seen is very nice. Some I had voted for. While I agree, the ability to modify a template and save it as your own would be nice. Mostly, I would like the ability to add or change fields or field labels for customer processes. All projects are different and all clients are different. Keep us the great work team!

        We are using VSO Scrum template and need the ability to customise it to enable us improve development process on Estimation and Project Management, including below fields.

        1) PBI / Task Sizing. Eg XS, Small, Medium, Large, XL
        2) Completed & Original Estimate. To sync VSO & MS Project Plan to communicate project status/ progress to sponsors/stakeholders. The current Scrum template only provides the Remaining Work field.

        Otherwise add option to configure additional work item types such as epics and initiatives

        Please allow for ability to define security on fields (don't allow assign, but do allow create item and edit other fields for example). Dynamic workflows of allowing assigned-to to dynamically change according to status. Allow custom status' to match internal vernacular.

        At the minute we're using VS "offline" to manage the backlog, bugs... and we work with customized templates. This is a must have for us.

        First of all just and custom columns to task like in Features and Backlogs. Why it's impossible just for tasks where adding even a fake state is a must.

        It's been two years since this was submitted, what is physically stopping your team from implementing this very important feature?

        Are all the WIT's tied together for every account? Such that if I were to add a field to my Bug type, it would affect everyone? This doesn't make sense as I have to make modifications to each Project for just about anything else.

        still no update on this ???? Please it is very irresponsible not to even provides comments and updates.

        We lost several work items (meeting minutes, change requests, etc). Agile companies that use Scrum, Scrumban and need to adhere to CMMI would benefit from the choice to share templates work items.

      • Morten SamsMorten Sams commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        To begin with, just being able to add more states in the individual fields of a fixed templates (the combos) would be very helpful :-)

        Is there an ETA on this? We want to switch to visual studio online, but not having the process template to edit the bug process is making it hard for us.

      • MalMal commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Same deal. I'd seriously look to shift our company to VSO if we could use our custom WITs, even using the existing Scrum process template.

      • JohnJohn commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This is the only thing that is holding us from switching our team from our TFS on premise servers to visualstudioonline.com

        This is a great product, but.... It absolutely needs the ability to edit and create process templates. This feature was requested over two years ago and has over 3,000 votes? What gives?
