  • 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".

    • Starting then running all unit tests in a solution can take a very long time.

      This suggestion is migrated to Developer Community. Please use below link to view the current status.
      https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/idea/351207/starting-then-running-all-unit-tests-in-a-solution.html
      We have over 200 projects, 2900+ unit tests. It takes over a minute some times to get to the point where it can start listing all the unit tests in the test window, and start executing. We have latest gen Core I7, 8GB 64 bit windows, and it is still a pain. Maybe this area needs 're-imagining', as I can understand the complexities of managing this large number of projects/tests, but it is not working well for us.

      • Coded UI test html log should record assertion

        Include assertion checks in the HTML log file created by QTAgent this is essential for testers as many times they are asked to show proof specially in medical companies(at list that what my personal experience says)

        • Support Spec Explorer in Visual Studio 2015

          This suggestion is migrated to Developer Community. Please use below link to view the current status.
          https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/idea/351408/support-spec-explorer-in-visual-studio-2015.html
          Spec Explorer is a masterpiece for testing requirements:
          It is closest to the best general known way of defining requirements ( thanks to abstract state machines) in a language you master using a very rich object-object oriented architecture!
          Please make it work with Visual Studio 2015.

                https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/idea/351325/turn-the-visual-studio-performance-testing-quick-r.html
                The Rangers, MCS and P&P have this beautiful >static< guidance for best practices on various topics. My proposal is to take one of these sources of content and turn it a Wiki that will hopefully stay fresh through community interaction. As i have a had a couple of people ask about this document, written in 2010, http://vsptqrg.codeplex.com/
                Visual Studio Performance Testing Quick Reference Guide (Version 3.6) i start there...
