    • Visual Studio 2015 Community is very slow on starting

      on right-clicking on a text file to load it with Visual Studio 2015 it takes a Long time, although nothing else than the text Editor is required to process that file. there should be some optional start-up Switches, which avoid azure/Cloud/etc... loading when not explicitely needed.
      the fast-Launch Option is already checked, but ist slow anyway

        • Make XAML designer only update when saving.

          Currently the designer tries to interpret the XAML all the time causing Visual Studio to hang for short periods of time.

          • Create Template Groups

            For each PBI/Story we need to create the same tasks for all:
            -Requirements
            -Design
            -Development
            -Deployment
            -Test
            -Documentation
            and a TEST CASE

            It would save lots of time in Sprint Planning is we could use a group template where each of these work items could be created automatically.

            Would be a big improvement in Usability, and reduce the risk of Carpal Tunnel problems :)

            • Please add timesheets. It would be nice to see how many hours a user has per day. Helps with team atmospheres

              More for Project Management. there should be an easier way to submit hours on a daily basis for a task, item , etc

              • VS is busy - Multiple Windows

                Often getting VS is busy message. Though it is because IDE/Team Explorer tries to access TFS data to display, it would have been nice to have ability to interact with other sections/windows of VS (code editor etc.) Instead currently the IDE in whole is not responding.

                VS 2015 Enterprise
