See which test plans/runs are running on a lab environment
Via MTM lab management you can now only see that the lab environment is running tests.
I would like to see which test runs/plans are running and also those that have been queued for running in the lab environment.
Purpose: In a situation where multiple teams can use the same environments for their regression tests, it would be very handy for an admin to see who is running the tests and also which ones are queued.
Also to set priority, similar as in the build queue in TFS.
Thanks, I had build a VS extension for this now used by all our teams, I am looking forward to seeing this in action.
With the new build system in TFS 2015, an admin can do all this from the Web interface of TFS.

This is also usefull if I have to update the test environment for a new build for a sub branch and I don't want to interfer with existing test before they are processed (by stoping the gackground task service by example).
