        • allow dashboards to be 'drillable' (currently clicking on a dashboard only opens the larger query)

          Currently, with a dashboard chart that shows a graphic chart based on a query (i.e. open bugs cut by status), clicking on the chart opens the full query behind the dashboard chart. What would be prefereable would be to allow the chart to be drillable, so that if I click on a particular part of the chart it only shows the items that are applicable to that portion of the chart.

          Thanks!

          • Add a Keybinding Resolver that shows which shortcut hotkeys are being hijacked in Visual Studio

            In the Github Atom, they have the feature, called "Keybinding Resolver", where you can bring up a list of all packages with commands that corresponds to a shortcut hotkey you have pressed in the "Show Keymap Binding" panel.

            I would like to suggest to have a Keybinding Resolver implemented into Visual Studio, or future Visual Studio IDEs, so that we can all easily resolve keybinding / hotkeys conflicts related to our Extensions, and troubleshoot the issues better.

              In VS 2017 the refactor button appear too far form mouse cursor. That is very uncomfortable.

              • Better upgrade support for node, npm via Visual Studio

                Node, NPM and Bower are part of Visual Studio installation. However the shipped versions are outdated. It would be a nice feature if Visual Studion supports the update of Node, NPM and bower to the newest version, without the need of manual interference.

                  • Get rid of IDE0017 C# Object initialization can be simplified

                    I recently switched to VS 2017 RC as my primary development mode because I read it was production ready.

                    Now every class I compile you try and show me a warning, 'Object Initialization Can Be Simplified'.

                    Get rid of this warning, or at the very least make it something that has to be turned on, do not turn it on by default.

                    You can't just introduce something that breaks 12 years worth of C# code in our code libraries.

                    • "Scope to This" option on "SQL Server Object Explorer"

                      Add a context item to "SQL Server Object Explorer" for Scope to This to focus the view on one database similar to how you can scope to a project or folder in Solution Explorer

                      This will prevent having to scroll over slightly to see all the tables/columns. Since the default view for tables are 4 deep to begin with. The same options should also be applied to "Server Explorer" as well

                      • Don't require Docker for Windows

                        I dont' understand why "Docker for Windows" is a hard requirement for Docker-based development in VS2017. Docker for Windows requires Hyper-V which is pretty terrible as a client hypervisor. Why not just take a dependency on "docker.exe" and leave it up to the user to set it up? I can totally understand if it would default to the "Docker for Windows" thing, but it should totally be possible to override the settings so that using Docker Toolbox or a remote docker host was possible. Right now its way too locked down and there's no way to adjust parameters.

                        • Support for SpecFlow

                          SpecFlow is being extensively used by us to bridge the gap between Business Domain Logic and Automated Tests.
                          Currently SpecFlow runs erratically on Visual Studio. The Test Step to Binding Function lookup often breaks, and takes a long time to refresh.
                          I sincerely request Microsoft to consider closely integrating SpecFlow with Visual Studio test runners.

                            • VS2017: Less Frequently Updates

                              Beginning with Visual Studio 2017, updates are delivered a little too often. At the time of writing this, the products GA is about two months but we already had two bigger updates, and some KBs in-between. Compared to the update cycle of the previous Visual Studio versions, I find this cadence too fast. I don't want to spend time every other weak to download and install a new Visual Studio minor version or hotfix. IMHO, releasing a bigger update every few months like in the past was more appropriate and less stressful.

                              • Please do not abandon built-in workitem forms for a browser experience.

                                I was going to go back to VS 2015 until I found that I could change the default for opening a work item to go back to opening a form in the IDE instead of launching the browser.
                                Aside from the browser experience being harder to navigate, it complicates my workflow to also have the browser opening up work items and loosing what I was referring to while I'm trying to concentrate on the content of the work items.

                                  Clicking on the Release Notes link in Visual Studio Installer launched Edge browser.

                                  I don't have Edge as my default browser. The Installer should respect my default application settings.
