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.

        ahora necesito conocer cómo se llama y dónde está ese campo "order" en SQL 2008 para imprimir un reporte... alguien sabe??? gracias

        Yes... but in spanish...
        desde el Test Plan hay que crear una Suite, entonces adentro de la Suite vinculás el Requirement... luego, copiás los Test Cases del Requirement sobre la Suite...
        Te posicionás sobre la Suite y arriba a la derecha vas a ver un botón llamado "Order". Hacés click en ese botón, y listo... configurás el orden de los casos de prueba para esa ejecución o las posteriores.
        Saludos

        is there any plan to add the ability to order tests on the web, and if so when? Has a release been scheduled?

        It is a very important Feature. It should be implemented as soon as possible.

        CUIT automation requires one to point a build at a suite. The test cases were not created in order and but run in the order of the ID not the Order column. So, the tests don't run in the expected order. This creates so many issues from tests failing or having to write the whole test suit over again to get the tests to run in the correct order. This makes CUIT automation virtually useless since it ruins your burn down.

        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
