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’re starting on our work process customization for VSO. We’ll be publishing details in the next few weeks, but I’m happy to report the work is underway.

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!
This makes the application life cycle management a lot better

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.

This would be VERY important to have here. We need to add/customize field into backlog items.
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.

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.
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?
