Announcement: Last fall, we migrated this forum to Developer Community to provide you one convenient and responsive system for all feedback. As the final step in the migration, this forum will be closed off completely on June 1st, 2019. We encourage you to visit Azure DevOps Developer Community where you can now suggest new ideas, browse and vote on existing ideas, and engage with Azure DevOps teams

We’d like your suggestions and ideas to help us continuously improve future releases of Azure DevOps and Team Foundation Server (TFS), so we’ve partnered with UserVoice, a third-party service, to collect your feedback. Please do not send any novel or patentable ideas, copyrighted materials, samples or demos for which you do not want to grant a license to Microsoft.

This site is for feature suggestions; if you need to file a bug, you can visit our Developer Community website to get started.

We look forward to hearing from you!

    We’re starting to take a look at this feature, and have some questions about exactly what people are expecting from this suggestion.

    Currently, the pull-request diff experiences ignore leading and trailing whitespace by default. For example, if only the indentation of a line changed, that line will not be highlighted as having any changes. This leads us to believe that this suggestion is about some other whitespace diffing behavior.

    We have some ideas about what this might mean, but we want to hear from our users. If you have any insights you wish to share to help us better understand this suggestion, please reply to this email and let us know.

    Thank you!

  2. VSTS - Personal Git repositories for forking

    This suggestion is migrated to Developer Community. Please use below link to view the current status.
    https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/idea/365505/vsts-personal-git-repositories-for-forking.html
    Give each user a personal Git repo space. The "root" repo today is "Git Repositories". Create a special root called "My Repositories".

    Then add a "fork" button next to the "clone" link that would automatically clone in a new repo in "My Repositories" Git folder. Repositories here should still have their origin remote and be available to submit Pull Requests against the origin.

    Here is a manual workaround that some are following to recreate this flow:
