        I have to agree. Not sure why they aren't allowing it. I was able to pull down the template, and edit it, only to find out I can't upload it?

        Work Item customization is most important. Every Project need it.
        Please provide this feature asap

        We have a very simple requirement and even minimal customization of the process template would help. We want to differentiate 'bugs' found in internal testing from bugs found by clients. We want all our staff to be able to track the status of bugs reported by clients -- no easy way to do this when QA and client-reported problems have to go into the same bucket.

        We are having to migrate from VSO to a self-hosted version of TFS, albeit on Azure. We are a startup company and we are trying to use everything we can as SaaS. We started out using VSO but the first problem we ran into was the inability to run custom tests (we are using Telerik Test Studio) which caused us to run a custom build/test server. Now we have a requirement to customize the work item template so we are going to have to move our whole TFS process to the self-hosted version. Disappointing. The VSO product is really only appropriate very small/simple projects and teams. It's not at all clear going in that this is the case.

        Need the feature to be able to migrate online. We have a couple of work item types that have to be there to maintain auditing for HIPAA and SOX compliance.

        This has been a huge issue on the last couple projects. The team is frustrated without this ability to match the work items to our process. Even the ability to define a couple work item types, rename them and add status values would be a big help.

        no bugs in the backlog view is a problem for my team too. i think we're going to use tags to mark certain user stories as bugs for now.

        Need this too....who thought it was a good idea to make bugs not show up in the agile template in the backlog view?

        One size does not fit all. We need to be able to customize TFS in order to support our process verse altering our processes to fit a tool. Very poor decision Microsoft.

        Currently trying to use VSO without the custom templating and we are constantly running into process issue. This is really a vital functionality
