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

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".

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.

    Based on a discussion on the ALM Champs list and ALM Rangers Forums:

    I’d love control(s) that:
    - Allows me to pick files and/or folders from TFVC and/or Git
    - Allows me to configure and save a ACL for an object of my choosing (akin to the Team Administrator ACL)
    - Allows me to select a Build (output)

    - Allows me…
