  1. pull request

    This suggestion is migrated to Developer Community. Please use below link to view the current status.
    https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/idea/366549/pull-request.html
    Our environment is
    DQA -> QA -> Prod
    DQA = auto CD
    QA = Gated approval from test
    Prod = Gated approval from

    We do not have multiple DQA environments so when we complete a PR, it goes to a build definition that builds and auto deploys to DQA.

    Our workflow is such that Proposed->Thinking -> Developing->Testing->Closed - ie. our In Progress states
    are thinking about it, doing it, testing to make sure it worked.

    Rather than the checkbox for Closed Work Items…

  2. Make it possible to expand snipped sections of a pull request diff

    This suggestion is migrated to Developer Community. Please use below link to view the current status.
    https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/idea/366468/make-it-possible-to-expand-snipped-sections-of-a-p.html
    When reviewing the files changed in a pull request (via the "files" tab), repos snips unchanged lines between diffs. For example, if I make a change on line 2 an 100, it looks like repos only shows a few lines around each change for context.

    It would be nice to be able to expand context around an individual diff line. In lots of cases this can be useful to figure out where you are in a file, especially a long code or documentation…

  3. Make a protected branch fully protected.

    This suggestion is migrated to Developer Community. Please use below link to view the current status.
    https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/idea/366425/make-a-protected-branch-fully-protected.html
    See https://github.com/MicrosoftDocs/vsts-docs/issues/1198

    Issue:

    Alice creates a pull request for BranchA (containing her new code) to be merged into master.
    Bob pulls down BranchA and makes a new change to it and pushes it up. In our situation this resets any reviewer votes on the pull request since we have that option enabled in our branch policy on master.
    Bob can now approve the pull request. Only Alice is prevented from approving the pull request she created - even though it also contains changes…

  4. Plural "Repos" should be singular "Repo"

    This suggestion is migrated to Developer Community. Please use below link to view the current status.
    https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/idea/366527/plural-repos-should-be-singular-repo.html
    A project can have only one repository.
    The navigation tab says "Repos" which implies you can have more than one.

  5. In new navigation clicking on 'Repos' should list repos

    This suggestion is migrated to Developer Community. Please use below link to view the current status.
    https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/idea/366513/in-new-navigation-clicking-on-repos-should-list-re.html
    In the new navigation I think clicking on 'Repos' should list repos. The only way to switch repos is a dropdown in the breadcrumb above.

  6. Hide my created PRs in the PRs assigned to me view

    This suggestion is migrated to Developer Community. Please use below link to view the current status.
    https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/idea/366510/hide-my-created-prs-in-the-prs-assigned-to-me-view.html
    Most of my PRs are in an area that a policy auto assigns back to me. This results in most of my PRs being duplicated between the PRs I create and the PRs assigned to me. It would be much more helpful if the PRs assigned to me view did not list the ones I created.

  8. Add option to group Pull Requests by target branch

    https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/idea/366448/add-option-to-group-pull-requests-by-target-branch.html
    We manage our releases using the release branches. It would be really helpful if I could group Active Pull Requests by target branch.

    [Please add a category "Code Review" to the Category combo above]

  9. Add option to remove all work items on pull request

    This suggestion is migrated to Developer Community. Please use below link to view the current status.
    https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/idea/366444/add-option-to-remove-all-work-items-on-pull-reques.html
    There should be a "remove all work items" option on pull requests. Sometimes when we're merging from master into branches there are dozens of them that we don't want to include. Having to individually remove these (and confirm in a dialog each time) is very annoying.

  10. Review pull requests from within Visual Studio IDE

    This suggestion is migrated to Developer Community. Please use below link to view the current status.
    https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/idea/366433/review-pull-requests-from-within-visual-studio-ide.html
    Allow PR functionality through an IDE extension. This would work much like the GitHub plugin: https://visualstudio.github.com/, which would allow us to view PRs, check out code, comment, approve, etc.

    https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/idea/366431/repository-selection-box-bigger.html
    My company has a some larger names for repositories (Ex. ws_domain_webServiceName) It would be nice to have the repository box either be expandable to my desired size or for it to be bigger so I can see the full repository name.

    Right now we have the option to compare branches in Azure Devops->Repos->Branches, but not compare at the tips. Please add an option to do so.

  13. Allow actions on multiple files selection in repos

    This suggestion is migrated to Developer Community. Please use below link to view the current status.
    https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/idea/366411/allow-actions-on-multiple-files-selection-in-repos.html
    We can drop several files in one commit but we cannot select multiple files to make a global actions (move or delete files).

    We should be able to select multiple files and apply an action and commit to the selection.

  14. Add post-commit git hook for Wiki changes

    This suggestion is migrated to Developer Community. Please use below link to view the current status.
    https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/idea/366401/add-post-commit-git-hook-for-wiki-changes.html
    I want to notify VSTS Wiki changes to Slack. post-receive/update hooks are not working. It seems that Wiki is directly committing to the repo and not pushing changes to it. Either the post-commit hooks needs to be supported or the Wiki changes have to be pushed to the repo so that the post-receive/update hook is working fine.
