I suggest you ...

enable changing the order of test cases on the web gui and let them be tested in this order for both manual & automated tests

With the MTM 2012, it is possible to change the order of test cases within one test suite and this order is considered when testing. This functionality is missing in the web environment. It is not possible to order test cases and then have somebody else test them in a specific order. If a test suite is run, the tests are ordered by ID only. Make this work for both manual & automated tests.

        Not sure why Microsoft has ignored this request for so long(since Simon Nocher shared this idea · July 02, 2013).

        I'm Using VS TFS 2013 and MTM 2013 and experiencing the same.

        It appears that you are able to order test cases in Test Manager; but if you have the ability to create Test Suites and Test Cases in Team Web Access and then execute them shouldn't there be some control over test case ordering.

        This is a major and necessary part of Test Planning and Test Case design.

        Ordering of test case is essential as most part of the time TC must be executed in a specific sequence (data flow, ...)

        Enable ordering of Test Cases connected to User Stories is a very impotent and will cause us not using MTM at all

        I noticed 5 votes under "Enable ordering of Test Cases connected to User Stories" which I believe is asking for the same thing - the ability to order test cases in Requirement and Dynamic based test suites. Shouldn't these be merged along with their votes.

        The inability to order test cases in a Requirement Test Suite is the reason we will not be able to make use of the Requirement Test Suite.

        This is more than just being useful. This is a basic thing when creating test cases. In many caes testers don't create the tests in the order they want to execute them. Having the option to change the order is Imperative.

        This regards to all query based suites! It would be beneficial to always be able to change the order of test cases in any environment. The dynamic traceability benefit of query based suites is a great feature, but is bottlenecked by the lack of this feature.

        This is something that would be very usefull to have in a new version of test professional. If you want to work with test cases in a good way, you need to add them to a requirement and right now this is not possible
