Edit comments on ticket's discussion
This suggestion is migrated to Developer Community. Please use below link to view the current status.
at tfs page, the ticket's discussion comments can't be edited, i would like to edit the comments because of typos or other things.
This work is planned and we’re currently hashing out all the details for updating our discussion experience to make it more prominent, usable, and modern.
Allowing editing existing comments will be part of this update. Sorry for the inconvenience that our current experience creates and thank you for your patience.

This is a basic feature. It's very disappointing ...
Please add this functionality as soon as possible.

This HAS TO BE A FEATURE in ADOS 2019 ( if i could i would vote for the 600+ TFS users of our enterprise

This is ridiculous. How can this still not be done? When you are at it already, please add delete for comments right away as well. I'd be ashamed for not supporting this from the get-go.
Allowing usesr to edit a comment is such an important and basic feature, all other major DevOps tools support it, plus almost all other software/services people encounter daily allows this too.
Coming from JIRA/Confluence, I spent 5 minutes on VSTS trying to find that "hidden" edit button because I can't believe it's not supported.
I understand there are architectural decisions made long time ago that make the implementation of this feature difficult, but as the other comments said here, please prioritize this feature, as it impacts 100% of the user. Thanks!

Shouldnt the most basic brick-work features be prioritized and implemented first? ... before the more advanced ones?
I need to edit my comments. I dont need a YAML pipeline creation experience.
And please do not delay this to over engineer or create a modern discussion experience! Just pure "edit" and "delete" functionality would be a "small step for you but a big step for" the Azure DevOps community.
I put the comment, I should be able to edit or delete it. The rest fancy/modern functionality can be put in a back-burner.
Can I delete a source artifact? How are the comments more immutable than a source artifact?. Are comments implemented via a block-chain technology behind the scenes?

Moved from a legacy system to devops, and just found out that comments can’t be edited. very disappointed. (legacy system could of course edit comments….)
VSTS team is one of the BEST @MSFT when it comes to listening to user-voice and improving the product.
Either this request has a wrong impact statement which causes in low of the lowest priority, or it is due to a fundamental design issue down to the core of the product.
There is no other way this takes 5 years to fix...
Since March 12, there have been SO MANY updates to the product, which are seemingly much more substantial updates than this.
I guess we need to socialize this more to increase visibility and help it get higher visibility.
If Jira can do it, Azure DevOps can do better!

I've just accidentally created a ticket with discussion instead of description. I've copied the discussion to the description, but I am unable to delete the now redundant discussion. Other systems support this, hope this feature comes soon.
I agree, I dont think it will take much time to give the edit functionality in the discussion forum. Please consider this very urgent.

This feature could be implemented by an intern within hours! Make it happen!
+1 as well; this would have been really useful right now
+1 for this feature, it really is vital that edit comments is enabled in Azure tickets. Thank you
Please make this feature a priority.
Allison B. commented
When can we get the capability to delete our own comments in the discussion?
+100500 to priority, Pleaseeee

+1 to make this feature a priority.

7 months since ‘we are finally thinking about it’ any more news on this new editing experience? I’d consider moving from our existing ticketing system but this is just plain embrassing to admit VSO can’t do this

How is this not a thing in 2018?
Just started using VSTS by force at my new workplace. Had Jira at our last place. Pretty exiting that this basic functionality, wanted since 2013 at least, haven't been released yet. And I love Ewald Hofman, Program Manager for VSTS, answer. (flip out admin's answers). Super douchy.
