Add project references automatically
If we have a large solution and type class name which is situated in another assembly and current assembly doesn't have direct reference on it then reference should be added automatically.
It will be nice to have such possibility.
Thanks for taking the time to share this suggestion. This item has been around for a couple of versions of Visual Studio and we haven’t acted on it. Looking at the VS “15” plans, we’re not going to take action on this item, so we’re going to close it. If the suggestion is still relevant, please either take a look to see if there’s another suggestion that’s similar that you can vote on, or open a new suggestion.

e.g ConfigurationManager.AppSettings is used for all the projects. Its manual step to search and adding reference.
This could be a quick win to implement.

VB already has this, or something really close. I don't know why C# doesn't do the same.

Yes... This wastes time.. VS should add these references automatically.

ReSharper has had this feature for years. Why are you using Visual Studio without ReSharper?
