How can we improve Team Services?

Integrate Office365 and Visual Studio Online

Please integrate Visual Studio Online and Office 365 better, considering that an organization that is interested in Visual Studio Online will be likely to be using Office 365.

Integration should include:
- Authentication - users should be able to use their Office365 accounts and not only LiveID.

- SharePoint site integration - from Visual Studio Online let me configure a site that I can host file sharing from, including the ability to use Office 365 as a SharePoint source. Administrative functionality should be included provided the user has the ability to administer Office365.

- SharePoint site integration, storyboarding - same as above, but specifically to better storyboarding integration. Currently users must manually "go somewhere else" to save their storyboard file, or add it under source control which is not ideal in either case. This should be seamless, especially considering the slightly non-technical nature of the audience for storyboarding.

        About the authentication thing, it's already been there for more than a year. Just log on the azure portal, add an existing azure active directory, add the one of your office 365 tenant (you have to be the admin of the tenant in order to do that). Once added to your azure subscription go to the settings of your vsonline tenant (still winthin azure portal), configure and select your AAD.
        Once that is done you'll have to update rights and stuff, and if you still have live id users to give access to, you'll have to add them as external aad first.

        We work with a university system which has hundreds of thousands of students on Office 365. For the subset of those students in Computer Science related majors, it would be fantastic if they could easily use VSO with their O365 account. Unfortunately the current reality is that they can't unless they create a Microsoft Account, which is huge pain in the neck for both them as well as the instructors (creates confusion). So they either just don't use it, opt for something entirely different, or in some instances they will create a Microsoft Account often using a non-Microsoft service such as GMAIL. From my perspective I believe Microsoft is losing out on a potential huge user base, and doing so at a critical time in students' lives when they choose technologies to bring into the workplace.

        @Justin, things we would like would be feeding project data into SharePoint (e.g. work item status), being able to show burn down charts in SP, and interacting with customers in SP. We like that we can let our customers into O365 to collaborate with us but do not like the double entry we have to do when we want to let them know the status of PBI's and bugs.

        Losing the SharePoint integration is a big one for me as a Program Manager. major loss of visibility into artifacts associated to the project. Also the loss of dashboards that need Excel Services, Report Services and Project would be nice. Not being able to export to excel from a backlog or query is a big loss too...When will this be integrated>

        Users in VSO (linked to Azure AD) should be recognized as O365. Currently, our resources in VSO are not automatically recognized in PWA even though they share the same email and have an E3 in O365. We could use clearer documentation on working through enterprise projects that rely on VSO for managing the Scrum development lifecycle. There is some guidance on connecting TFS (on-premise) to Project Server (on-premise), but very little on a VSO to PWA integration.

        Integration between VSO and Office 365 will certainly lead to a 365 degree view of all the artifacts and activities. Very much needed.

        We're going to move sharepoint on the cloud.
        However with our level of customization such as process, builds, etc... and for security reason we can't move TFS on the cloud.
        Therefore, I would be great if MS provide the capability to integrate TFS self-hosting with sharepoint 365.

        @Justin: This was something you were passionate about enabling 2 years ago. Where is it sitting at this point in terms of your planning?

        Would really love this, especially if SharePoint was hosted in the cloud too, so that we could use Team Foundation Service with all the benefits of a Document Library as well.

        This is a priority for us as we cannot look at moving our onsite TFS server to this hosted service until we can control user access through our Office365 Organisational Accounts.

        A way of linking MSDN subscriptions to organisational accounts will also be required at some stage.

        It might be good to separate the Authentication issue from the other suggestions in this post. I would give all of my votes to that item as a top priority.

        This is critically important to an enterprise when an employee leaves. Failing to remove TFS access could be disastrous.

        If folks have SkyDrive account, it seems easy to use :) and I love "real-time" collaboration.
