Visual Studio IDE

Announcement: Last fall, we migrated this forum to Visual Studio Developer Community to provide you one convenient and responsive system for all feedback. As the final step in the migration, this forum will be closed off completely on June 1st, 2019. We encourage you to visit Visual Studio Developer Community where you can now suggest new ideas, browse and vote on existing ideas, and engage with Visual Studio teams.

We’d like your suggestions and ideas to help us continuously improve future releases of Visual Studio, so we’ve partnered with UserVoice, a third-party service, to collect your feedback. Please do not send any novel or patentable ideas, copyrighted materials, samples or demos for which you do not want to grant a license to Microsoft.

This site is for feature suggestions; if you need to file a bug, you can visit our Developer Community website to get started.

Note: your use of the portal and your submission is subject to the UserVoice Terms of Service & Privacy Policy and license terms.

We look forward to hearing from you!
- The Visual Studio Team

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Improve the way new project are created in Git environments

    Consider providing additional inputs in the New Project dialog, specifically a dropdown list of Git repositories that Visual Studio may already be aware of from prior use.

    Also change the label "Name:" on the same dialog to be "Project name:" as is done for the "Solution name:" just below it.

  2. Expose "ReferenceOutputAssembly" project reference metadata in Properties window

    Yes, in the same way you expose "Copy local" or "Aliases" properties of the reference.
    So that we can create project references without creating assembly references (which is useful when some assemblies are loaded dynamically, via IoC). More details on the metadata to expose: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/kirillosenkov/2015/04/04/how-to-have-a-project-reference-without-referencing-the-actual-binary/

  7. Show all project templates (even if not installed) in new project wizard

    The other day I went crazy trying to find the option in the installer that would make the C++/CLI project type show up in the new project wizard.

    When you open an existing project that uses features not currently installed, Visual Studio 2017 prompts you to run the installer and automatically install the missing features.

    Suggestion: show all project types in the new project wizard, and if the user chooses to create a new project for which the components are not installed, prompt the installation at that point.

  8. Stop building dependencies when root fails to build

    In a solution of 50 projects when some base project fails to build the build continues anyway and produces 50 errors in the Error list. One has to wade through noise to actually find the root cause. Also wastes CPU and battery.
