A feature to add key value pairs (encrypted) so that such values can be available during build execution in post build scripts. These are useful in scenarios like publishing to private nuget feed.1 vote
Inline Todo comments work great, but in classes where you only have properties (DTOs) adding inline comments would only create a mess. Having a "todo" tag would keep the code clean.5 votes
In VS2008, we could customize the toolbars by drag and drop, which was easy and handy, but from VS2010 on, we could no longer do that.
Second, in VS2008 we could make a toolbar vertically positioned, but from VS2010 on, toolbars could only be horizontal.
Please bring those features in VS2008 back to us.1 vote
Please include the visual studio sdk into the visual studio installer and build more language for the sdk
My english is not very well.
As we know, the visual studio has kinds of language versions. But the sdk only has the english version. I hope when we install the visual studio, we can also select to install the sdk which language is the same with the visual studio.
Best thanks for the visual studio developers, it is a powerful IDE.0 votes
A great UI benefit of the task board is to be able to reassign tasks to team members by drag and drop. However, if a team member does not have any tasks assigned to them, that person does not appear on the task board. By having all team members appear regardless of task assignment, assigning tasks is much easier than opening the work item and assigning.2 votes
Full support for coding by voice using either window speech recognition or Dragon NaturallySpeaking.
For example you should be able to say a customisable command, consisting of language and category like :
Visual Basic Statements
and a list of statements will appear on the screen where you can choose an item by saying a number or the name of the item (For Next Loop for example). The code snippet would then be inserted into the current location in the IDE. And the most appropriate item that needs changing will be selected in the IDE.11 votes
Nowadays, the Rollback activity in the Release Template is triggered only if one of the previous activities fail (returning a non-0 status code).
It would be great to be able to trigger a Rollback activity if the release is Rejected by some of the Approvers.
By now, when it happens, we need to trigger a new Release manually to rollback the application to the previous version. It takes a hard work because we need to find the latest valid (and released) build, etc.135 votes
Thank you for using Release Management and for your commitment to improving it. We are currently evaluating whether we will be able to include this into the product. We will be providing an update soon.

While selecting files to add to VCPROJ, the list of the files in the selection dialog should be in different colours
While selecting files to add to VCPROJ, in the selection dialog,
Show file names in different colors with some criteria like
files that are already part of the project in one color
files that are not part of the project in one color
It makes the user developer easy to access.
And this helps the porting teams to clear the files that are unnecessary.1 vote
Please provide BLE scanning in peripheral mode, please update it, its already available in iPhone and Android, in windows phone 8.1, still its not available. We can scan and get MAC address without pairing device. Documents launching is also a typical process, sometimes .docx and .xlsx are not supporting.1 vote
In dataset designer, by default "NullValue" of DataColumns is "throw exception".
It's rather tricky to handle such exceptions.
I'm quite sure it makes more sense to return null directly (or at least return DBNUll) by default. This is because I do not want to an exception every time when DBNull is returned as null is valid in most cases. If it's not valid, I can still get NullReferenceException. Why should it throw one more exception?
If you do not agree with me, you may do an poll.
However, of course, you can leave "throw exception" as an option.1 vote
Use red icon for plus sign instead of green when showing source control newly added file in solution explorer
By default, the green + sign is visually non-distinguishable with still locked files. But red check mark is visually distinguishable. I think a red + sign will be more visually distinguishable.3 votes
It would be nice if we can change properties for everything in a folder, instead of doing it individually.
An example of this would be:
instead of setting every file's (within a folder) Build Action to Content, and Copy to Output Directory Copy Always, it would be possible to click on the folder and change settings for every item in it.4 votes
One of the things that I dislike about the query syntax is this:
var xyz =
(from a in b
where a.c == 1
What do you think about the idea of extending the C# query syntax a little so that the following was possible?
var xyz =
from a in b
where a.c == 1
end.ToArray(); or perhaps even $.ToArray();
The syntax could even allow multiple 'end' markers to be chained:
var xyz =
from a in b
where a.c == 1

Quite often the text being searched for within the Quick Find (Control-F) box in Visual Studio 2013 doesn't fit. The box can of course be made wider, but that doesn't stick. It would be nice if it would come up wider every time.3 votes
Currently, SQL Server Database Projects are rebuilt systematically even when it seems unnecessary and the user asked for a normal build (as opposed to a forced rebuild).
This can be reproduced by creating a new empty sqlproj using the SQL Server Database Project template, and select "Build" twice. It will be rebuilt the second time even though no change occured in between.5 votes
Provide a developer account on Microsoft Azure portal to use all the available services free of cost.
Please provide a developer account so developers can play with the functionalities, keep coming up and contribute better while working on real time projects. One month free subscription is not sufficient as new features are getting release every month. It can be limited sharing environment but should be available without any cost.4 votes
