Azure DevOps (formerly Visual Studio Team Services)

Announcement: Towards the end of this month, we will move ideas to the Azure DevOps Developer Community where users already report and track their issues. The move is aimed at providing a single platform for all your feedback and improve your engagement with our product team. After the move, this UserVoice site will become read-only and new suggestions can be added on Developer Community.

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.

Note: your use of the portal and your submission is subject to the UserVoice Terms of Service & Privacy Policy and license terms.

We look forward to hearing from you!

  1. Make it possible to manage a bug as a task and as a requirement in the same team board

    Currently in VSTS and TFS is not possible to manage a bug as a task and another bug as a requirement together in the same team board. In our team, we want to manage bugs as requirements when they are related to an old version of our application, and manage bugs as tasks when are related to an ongoing development of a user story. It would be fantastic if will be also an annotation for bugs in user story just like is already done for tasks and tests.

    • Configure Boards > Sprints to default to current sprint, not last viewed sprint

      The system should allow the "Project > Boards > Sprints" page to be configured to default to the current sprint iteration, instead of the last viewed sprint for the current user. It's un-intuitive that I would click on something called "Sprints" and it gives me a sprint that is not the current sprint, with no real indication on the page that the sprint i'm looking at is not the current sprint (such as a past,current,future indicator as seen in the sprint selector dropdown).

      • Current Sprint Board

        I love the stories board feature in Azure DevOps (my team found the task board to be useless). But it seems geared towards Kanban instead of Scrum and we use Scrum. If there was a board that could be linked to a sprint and showed the work capacity, it would be an awesome Scrum tool.

        • Indicator that a PBI spans sprints on sprint board

          It would be really useful when looking at the sprint board, to see an indicator that shows a PBI spans multiple boards.

          Otherwise when you visit an old board, and see PBIs with all the tasks completed, but not closed it can be confusing.

          (I know in an ideal world a PBI should be completed in a sprint, but we don't all work in that world).

          • Project template/clone - to reuse Board config setups, dashboard views, teams and queries

            Within a project you can configure a lot of different settings. You might have a number of different Teams, each using their own Board view configured for them, e.g. different columns, card colours, rules and fields displayed on the cards.

            You may also have some custom queries and dashboard views to standardise reporting.

            Setting all of this up can takes hours, days or longer.

            Yet each time you create a new project, you have to go and re-invent the wheel and start over. There doesn't seem to be a way to reuse all of this effort.

            A solution would be…

            • Allow anonymous creation of user stories and bugs for Public Projects

              With the release of Public Projects in Azure DevOps, we need the ability to allow anonymous users (or signed in users, not on the team) the ability to submit user story (suggestions) and bugs. This is one of the huge advantages GitHub has over DevOps. Ideally, this should be optional because I can see the use case of making a project open source but not wanting to allow non-members to contribute.

                • Boards » Backlogs: please keep displaying the hierarchy if a filter is active

                  Hello

                  As Jack Zhai displays in his great short Video:
                  https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/solutions/348819/view.html

                  Azure DevOps stops displaying the hierarchy in Boards » Backlogs as soon as a filter gets activated.

                  It would be very useful if the Hierarchy will always be displayed so that the Users still can see the relation.

                  There is a small tricky challenge to solve:

                  Item State
                  Epic #1 New
                  +- Feature #1 New
                  +- Task #1 Active
                  +- Task #2 Active


                  If we activate a filter to just display all Active items,
                  then we loose the hierarchy information because Epic and Feature do not pass the filter.

                    • Add Description for days off

                      In the capacity planning, you can define days off. Defining a day off consist of a from-date and a to-date.

                      If could be very beneficial to have a description field here as well to describe why it is a day off (Vacation, public holiday, company event etc.)

                      • On the Plans view, allow dragging and resizing of sprints

                        As a product planner, I want to be able to edit the Gantt chart of sprints in the Gantt view, rather than having to go and find each individual team\sprint settings\click on dates, etc.

                        Drag and drop, and re-sizing of sprints.

                            • Allow/create new Kanban board for non-Backlog item types or Per Backlog Type

                              There are other work item types used that enterprise teams would love to handle in the KanBan manner, w/o being forced to mingle confuse those items in with product backlogs. So there are 2 feature requests here:

                              1) Allow new "Custom" KanBan boards that focus on a specific work item type.
                              - This allows a visible and easy lifecycle for things like "issues", "Ideas", and even "Tasks only" if that was wanted.
                              - It keeps that item out of the WIP limits and backlogs where other, real work is tracked. If for example an "Idea" work item become approved, it…

                                Skip /_backlogs/directory page if only one backlog exist.

                                With the recent addition of the directory page it creates an unnecessary click when only one backlog exist.

                                • inherit status when moving US fro sprint to sprint.

                                  When i have a backlog not completed in say sprint 11, but due to priority its going with med into next sprint to complete.

                                  When i change status on user-story from sprint 11 to sprint 12, this should automatically drag with it all new or active tasks, off-course Not ready for demo or closed.

                                  As it is today you have to open each one and change it before you can hit refresh and it has been moved.

                                  Would make things allot smoother as there is allot of these transactions. :)

                                    When clicking Sprints should navigate to current sprint. Or atleast make it possible to skip that page as a setting. Not go via an overview page with no information and no clear way to enter current sprint

                                      • Allow for Issue (Work Item) to be visible in the Sprint

                                        Allow for Issues to be visible in the Sprint. Bugs and User Stories are visible in the Sprint backlog. There needs to be an ability to allow for Issues to be visible. This helps in tracking the Sprints better.

                                        Allow an option to set visibility for Issues in the Organization Settings
                                        >> Process page:

                                        • Add Link Support in Work Item Layout

                                          In the OnPremise version of TFS/AzureDevOps Server you have via the witadmin the option to define URL Links to controls

                                          This is extremely beneficial when you as an example have a Ticket system and add a field to keep a ticket number of a bug as the Link functionality gives you the option to do an <a href link directly to the screen

                                          This example XML does it in OnPremise (to example Zendesk):

                                          <Control Type="FieldControl" FieldName="MyCompany.ZendeskTickId">
                                          <LabelText>
                                          <Text>Ticket # [</Text>
                                          <Text>
                                          <Link UrlRoot="https://myCompany.zendesk.com/agent/tickets/&quot; UrlPath="{0}">
                                          <Param Index="0" Value="MyCompany.ZendeskTickId" />
                                          </Link>Open</Text>
                                          <Text>]</Text>
                                          </LabelText>
                                          </Control>

                                          ***

                                          This type of customization is…
