      Thanks for taking the time adding the suggestion. Based on the description above, we do not have enough information.

      Could you please clarify what your suggestion is? What is for you a symbolic link?

        Tarun,

        Thanks for your idea. Making a project collection offline is pretty easy, because all the information is stored in one database. It is thus an operation on the database. Make a team project offline or disabled however involves lot of effort to make that happen.
        There is also a work around where you create a security group for your contributors and your admins. When you want to disable a team project, you can just move these from the contributors/admin group to the readers group (with add and remove).

        Based on these arguments (effort and a workaround) we rather spend our limited resources on other feature requests. Of course this is user voice, and the votes will tell if I am wrong. If there is lot of traction on this idea, I am very willing to revise my point of view.

            Thanks for the feedback. We had strong feedback on this in the past. In our latest update we have improved the UI to solve this.
            Please let us know if the new UI meets your expectations

              This is a great idea! Although we plan to make this available to you in the near future, we are still in the planning process. We will check back as soon as possible with any updates to this request.

              Thanks for the feedback. Although it seems simple, the reason that the operator is not there, is because the client only sends the core (like state and assigned to) and the changed fields to the server. When the server sends the alert, it does not have that information at hand.

              Instead of adding a feature that would allow you to do this, we are looking into the possibility of adding extensibility points to the rules. It is on our backlog, and unfortunately won't be in the product for Dev11.
              We will evaluate this feature in the future against all the other great ideas. In the stack ranking excercise we take lots of things into account, including User Voice. So having a strong passion for a feature request on User Voice will help building a strong case during the stack ranking.

                Thanks for the feedback. We have heard this request more in the past and it is already on our backlog. I am unable to indicate if and when we will implement the customization of the subject. We use the User Voice site as one of the areas helping us to stack rank features against each other. Ideas on User Voice with lots of passion are investigated very seriously.

                  Thanks for the feedback. We have heard these kind of requests more often in the past and we have added the feedback to our backlog. But we probably don't get to it in the near future.

                        We’ve considered this one for a long time but I don’t see it as something we’re going to take action on soon. I’m closing this one as declined.

                        We will be adding the ability to easily customize and add new fields… so you could think of adding a new identity field at that time for pair-programming scenarios.

                        Thanks.

                        We have heard this comment more often, mostly in combination with the MS Project integration. However it sounds interesting, you can step into the pitfall that nobody is really responsible for executing the task.

                        A good workaround is to create a new group that represents the pairs.

                            In vNext of the product, we have added the concept of teams. Teams are scoped to a Team Project. They represent a group of people (who) working on a set of work items (what), delivering them that work on a set of iterations (when).

                            More technically, for each team you can define the team members, the area paths, and the iteration paths they work on.

                            We hope this addresses the need you have. Let us know what you think!

                              The vNext version of the product will have a Taskboard, with drag/drop features. It works great on your computer screen, or a projected image, as well as with touch!
                              And its written entirely in HTML/JavaScript, so it works everywhere. We hope you enjoy it.

                                This is very possible to do today, by customizing your work item type definition.

                                  Thanks for submitting. We have this one on our backlog. It does keep getting pushed down, however, so any information on why this is important would be helpful.

                                    Great idea. This one is already on our backlog.
                                    Currently, what we do internally, is use the zoom-out feature of the browser to get this at-a-glance view.
                                    But a fit-for-purpose at-a-glance view (lot's of dashes there), is what we really need.
                                    Thanks for submitting.

                                        The migration toolkit provides a reasonably easy-to-use solution for this. However, we understand the request. Thanks for submitting.

                                          We have no plans to create a persona work item type where you can link to. If you have an on premise installation you are free to create your own work item type.

                                          Interesting idea. Not sure we would include this in the out-of-box templates we supply. Would like to hear more ideas of why this is important however.

                                          Have you considered creating a custom WIT to do this for you?
