        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.

        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?

        This is a show stopper for us. Without the ability to customize WITs by adding fields and changing workflows, we are unable to enforce corporate standards, track enterprise class projects and report metrics appropriately. We want to use VSO to streamline Azure deployments, since you can't use the latest automated Azure deployment tools with a local TFS instance. A real disappointment!

        Please add this. We are very keen to move to VS Online but - LIKE EVERYONE ELSE we have custom work item templates.

        Please implement this feature! My company is looking to move to VSO but are unable to without the ability to use custom process templates/work items. I hope Microsoft can be more forthcoming about when we could expect this feature as we are very anxious to move to VSO asap.

        this is a show stopper. We many users who use custom fields with TFS2010 Scrum template, this fields are required for VSO which we plan to move to next month.
        (aside, we also haves 1000s of work items which need to be migrated which also have these fields).

        This is a necessity before I can adopt at most of the organizations I consult at.

      • WillWill commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        What is the status of this? We have been waiting for this for over a year on our team....

      • ZephanZephan commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        BLOCKS our adoption: Currently we cannot move away from self-hosting TFS in-house until custom WIT is supported in VS Online.

        I'll echo Global Lists requirement mentioned Jan 30. (We don't use SharePoint, Reports, or MS Project so any related dependencies for those do not block our use case.)

        Very important and useful to map and track actual process journey with the visible board.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        We are considering a move away from Visual Studio because of this lack of functionality.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Won't move to Azure without it. You also need to be able to mod Global Lists and MS Project Field Mappings too!
