Single Dashboard for Multiple Projects
This suggestion is migrated to Developer Community. Please use below link to view the current status.
Currently TFS has dashboard for each project. However a user can have entitlements to multiple projects. So the user has to go inside each project to see project dashboard and view charts.
The proposal is to have a SINGLE dashboard that allows viewing multiple projects view on a single page. Widgets from projects can be pinned on this new dashboard.
This will be very handy for program level initiatives where a program has multiple projects being worked upon.
In our VSTS Feature Timeline(https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/vsts/release-notes/), you see a feature called “Dashboards – Create dashboard separate from a team” under “Reporting”
This feature will allow you to create a Dashboard that has no association with the team. This means you don’t need to create a team, to make a Dashboard. You can create any number of these Dashboards and share them with who you want.
However, Dashboards will still be stored with a Team Project. So to address your scenario (cross-team-project Dashboard), you’ll just have to pick a team project to store the dashboard.
We don’t have immediate plans to store a dashboard outside a team project.
Yes, cross-project burndown and widgets will be great.
Yes cross-project queries would be great! I can do it in Visual Studio IDE but not in DevOps
This will be great to list all projects and to see their progress
I wrote this proposition. I do not know if it is exactly the same as this proposition or what VSTS Team is proposing. Vote on it or merge it with this one if similar engough. Thanks.
Can someone code to bring widgets together on one page to display the items per team project? For example we have 14 projects under 1 organization and 8 scrum teams.
Please let us know when exactly we can get this change
Thanks for the update, and I can confirm what you advised is working for me. However, Test execution results (Outcomes) do not. You can't post a Test Case execution chart to a common dashboard.
*********** NOTE **************
This feature should enable "rollups" and "portfolio management" sort of capability. Elements that would allow a view across the projects to determine an enterprise roadmap of sorts. Also would help scheduling and reductions on dependency impacts or deconflicting. YES YES YES!!!
We ran into same issue, but able to pull charts for work items(User story, Feature..etc) from all the projects into one project Dashboard using "Query across projects" checkbox under Queries < editor in VSTS. This will help you pull reports from all the projects into one single project and use this project as a view for stakeholders.
For this you may have to create a new project or use any existing project Dashboard.

We keep all of our work items in one project, but the ability to include the build/release widgets for many projects would be great.
Same as many other, I need to have a global view of all project at once. Viewing one project at the time is not efficient and does not bring full visibility
Just the thing I was looking for.....this would be great !
I'll mention that today with the Analytics extension installed there are some new widgets (like Burndown/Burnup) that support querying across projects. I know this isn't exactly the ask here but I wanted to mention it since it's available today and may help.
This would be good!
Not sure why in Microsoft word we work only on one project at a time.
I am in change of multiple projects so I need to keep track of all of them at once...

This feature would promote visibility into project health across a company, where applying standardized views measure project against a single set of KPIs

I think their answer is Team Delivery Plans: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/vsts/work/scale/review-team-plans

Is this available or still in development?
Bob Harkins commented
This would be a great feature which could be displayed of a tv for a management view.
Shaula Zanchi commented
Is this still considered? it would be great to have it...

Definitely my client would love this feature, and in a maintenance perspective it would be very useful.
