      • Hipchat build completed events build filter should be multi-select

        We have a few builds in the one team project, In a particular HipChat room, there are some that we care about, and some that we don't, configuring a bunch of service hooks all the same is tedious. It would be nice to be able to select the relevant builds from a list.

        • navigating code using the scrollbar

          Hi,

          currently I have to click the slider and move it, or click repeatedly below or above it to reach a position.

          Nowadays, using Resharper, flags are displayed on the scrollbar - so sometimes I know exactly the position I want to reach... fast.

          How about allowing a double click to move the slider instantly to the desired position?

          Best Regards
          Heinrich

            • TFS: Make team project pages customizable (e.g. background colors)

              We manage many projects with the TFS 2013. Now we want to differ between these projects in the web frontend of the TFS by different background colors (e.g. in the title bar per team project and/or board).

              It would be very helpful if you can implement some customizing capabilities!

              • Integrate Azure to Lab Management

                Azure as Virtual Machine Manager must be integrated in to the Microsoft Test Manager.

                So those developers, like i am an many others, who does not have a whole infrastructure with SCVMM installed would be able to fully utilize ALM patterns to test their apps within the custom environments in fast and easy way.

                • ODATA: Add Composite Key Natively to ASP.NET WebAPI

                  Natively support Composites in the ODATA v4 framework.
                  Enabling getting single entities who are multi-keyed:

                  <host>/Players(Id=1,Name='Team 1 Player 1')

                  So that creating our own CompositeKeyRoutingConvention class isn't required.

                  • Build Notification Icon Color

                    This is small but a needed change in my eyes. The color of the icon from the web portal and the build notification gadget are not consistent. As you can see the icon in the web portal is blue (which is i think the way it should be). The build notification gadget has a green icon. This causes the icon not to stand out from the completed builds which are also green.

                    • Cloak/Exclude folders in Source Settings in tfs 2013 build definition from Team Foundation Git repository

                      When a build definition is monitoring all branches under a Git repository, I should be able to exclude a folder from the monitoring list? I would like to, for example, exclude the 'BuildProcessTemplates' folder from the monitoring list that lives under the Git repository.

                      The attached image shows Source Settings section of the build definition where the build definition is monitoring all the branches under the Git repository.

                      • CRC32 Helper Class

                        Many applications that communicate with low-powered hardware need a way to verify the received data. CRC32 is a well-known, lightweight check value which is better suite to verify short data.

                        .Net already has an implementation of this check value with (System.IO.Compression.Crc32Helper, System.IO.Compression, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089) but this class has an internal ac cess modifier and can't be used by user code.

                        My proposition is to make the Crc32Helper class public.

                          Multi-Device Hybrid Apps for Visual Studio CTP1 are only available in Windows 8.1 at the moment.
                          My customers in several major enterprises are evaluating this development possibilities, but reflect that only Win 8.1 can host this Cordova Add-in.
                          their Enterpirse Dev team still use Win7 and ask when it will relase for Win7?

                          • Improve Debugging Experience for TypeScript and JavaScript

                            The debugging experience for TypeScript and JavaScript NEEDS to be way better.

                            The experience available in IE F12 or WebKit dev tools should (in parts) be replicated within VS: things such as the console, and device emulation.

                            The way things are in NodeJs Tools for VS, are much better than what we have for ASP.Net and TS/JS debugging, which is a little sad :(

                            • Allow ClickOnce to Work With Captive Portals

                              If a ClickOnce-based application is run while a machine is behind captured behind a captive portal (eg wifi at an airport or coffee shop), then ClickOnce tries to interpret the captive portal login page as a .manifest file and fails. ClickOnce should be able to detect that it has not received a .manifest file and continue launching as if it were run in offline mode (if offline availability is selected for deployment).

                              • auto generate bugs after a automation test run

                                After my automation tests are run, I want any failed test case to automatically generate a bug report and place it on the specific person of my choise. I want this to be an easy option in test manager that could be configured in the test manager GUI. No coding required so my testers easy could configure it.
                                And attachments should be possible to be added as well.

                                    • Improve TFS Branch Merging user interface

                                      We work in a mainline with branch-per-release, so periodically we need to merge one or more bugfix change-sets to the active release branch. Often this means a batch of several non-contiguous changesets need to be merged to the same branch.

                                      1) When we open the merge dialog it doesn't remember the last-used settings (it defaults to "merge all changes" and the oldest branch - we always want to do a "merge specific changesets" and almost always this will be targeting the most recently created branch. If it just remembered the last settings I used, this would save a lot of…

                                        • Reconsider automatic links to Active Directory

                                          TFS automatically adds everyone it sees in Active Directory to its Identities list.

                                          We have 20 TFS users out of our 250 domain users.

                                          - All the "Assign To" fields list 230 irrelevant names in them.

                                          - All the domain users have access to TFS resources by default, so we have to be very careful with how we set up our groups and permissions to make sure only the right people can see TFS resources.

                                          - When we switched domains, TFS broke our database because we had two identities for each user, both with the same display name. We could…
