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.
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.
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.

Kinda surprised this wasn't supported
This feature is absolutely necessary and is stopping our migration. PLEASE ADD THIS FUNCTIONALITY MEOW!!!!!!!

This feature is really required before I want to migrate to VSO.
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.
We need to be able to add "Ready to Test" to the Bug work items.
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?
We badly need this feature!

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

This very important for our company as well..

IT is very very limiting trying to work without being able to add some custom flieds or not being able to add some new states
Eric Brown commented
I actually didn't realize you couldn't do this. This is important functionality to have.
This is VERY important - we need to be able to separate our pools of stories and tasks in a clear way that is meaningful to us - and the current drop-list options don't come close to cutting it. Please allow for customization ASAP. THX
