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".

      • Support for SharePoint 2016.

        Please provide support soon, as we are already upgrading our SharePoint to 2016. There are minimal changes between SharePoint 2013 and SharePoint 2016. So Im very surprised its not supported yet, even in Update 3.

          • Make Visual Studio a bit more fluid in use

            Designing a GUI in Visual Studio is fun, but can be a tedious process.. atleast for me. I have an idea that would make designing GUI's a bit faster and easier.
            Everytime a component (ex. button, textbox) gets dragged and dropped onto the form a small popup window should appear that quickly allows the developer to enter the essential property info, like the name and the text of the component.

            It will sure make for a faster and more fluid way of designing a graphical user interface.
            Also the setting can be optional, incase it would irritate a developer, it…

                    • Bring back ability to check in shelveset after successful build with latest sources

                      Previously in XAML builds, you could queue a build with "Latest sources with shelveset" AND check a box next to an option labeled, "Check in changes after successful build".

                      That second option (to check in) is no longer an option in queuing vNext builds. This was a horribly handy feature and would be terrific to have back!

                      • Help with Help information

                        I am having trouble finding quality help information. Currently, as it relates to building/distributing UWP apps. The information seems to be fragmented and intermixed with different version of Windows help. For example, Step-by-step instructions on how to successfully sideload UWP development apps to non-development laptop. I just screwed up a friend's laptop with a failed attempt to sideload my app because I do not fully understand process. I feel we need a contemporary "Charles Petzold" type resource (complete and well organized) for Microsoft development for Windows 10 and UWP.

                        • optimize for debugging like gcc -Og

                          An option similar to GCC's -Og would be fantastic for one of Visual Studio's bigger industries, commercial games. One is currently forced between choosing a fully optimized build that is impossible to debug or a debuggable build that can't run many real-time game tests at playable speeds.

                          Some basic optimizations like low-level inlining (simple getters and accessors and other very simple functions) and some math optimization is still easy to debug but can make _massive_ improvements to run-time speed.

                          • Save the selected .runsettings/.testsettings file so I don't have to reselect when restarting VS.

                            It is a waste of time having to reselect the .testsettings file each time I restart Visual Studio. This should be persisted with the .suo file or location saved with the solution.

                              • Allow repositioning of intellisense popup

                                When I am typing lines of code, the Intellisense block pops up to tell you the parameters of a function call I am making. But I find myself all too often needing to be able to read the line(s) of code directly above where i am typing, and it is directly under the intellisense block. Then I have to cancel the intellisense read the variable name I need, and go back and resume typing. Soemtimes the intellisens comes back ,sometimes it doesnt. But if I could just slightly reposition the intellisense popup itself, it would just make life so much…

                                • Support linking Shared Projects to .NET Core Class Libraries

                                  Shared Projects are a perfect way to isolate code from various dependencies and therefore share code between .NET Core, older .NET Framework versions, make managing dependencies easier and faster, etc.

                                  But Visual Studio currently does not seem to allow linking a Shared Project to a .NET Core Class Library, which is very surprising to me as it seems to be such a no-brainer.

                                  • disabling a breakpoint under debugger should be persisted

                                    When disabling a breakpoint while in debugger, it only get's temporarily disabled. This is very annoying, as they are there again when you do the next run, and have to stop the debugger, hunt for where the breakpoints are that you want to disable, disable them and then rerun the debugger.
                                    This was said to be coming in the next version, but I don't see it in "15"

                                    • VS2015-GIT SupporError encountered while fetching: Unsupported URL protocol

                                      I am using Visual Studio 2015 Update 3 with latest July 2016 patches. Every time when I try to Sync/Pull/Push a remote GIT bitbucket repository, it shows "Error encountered while fetching: Unsupported URL protocol" message. Outside of VS2015, everything works fine.

                                        Use VisualStudio Community, because my company don't want to buy a Visual Studio license, so can the Microsoft Slovenija send some free marketing time-expire code, just to remind that not all software is FREE.
                                        That kind of cards or usb cartidges can be just code for Visual studio that monthly expires until the company buy the VisualStudio IDE.
                                        ?!
