You might also be interested in our Features timeline to see what features are under development and which features we completed.
We also added an Announcements section where we will be posting special opportunities for you to participate in.

  1. XCode support plugin like TFS Team Explorer Everywhere

    Our dev team is beginning to develop native iOS and other mobile applications with many of these applications calling to a .NET backened web service. I would be great to have the ability to import xcode projects into TFS from the XCode GUI

    • Add support for TFVC repositories on TFS 2012 and 2013 to the IntelliJ IDEA Team Services plugin

      The Visual Studio Team Services plugin for IntelliJ IDEA, Android Studio, etc. currently only supports Git repositories on Visual Studio Team Services and Team Foundation Server 2015.

      It would be great to be able to get, checkout and checkin source code in/out of Team Foundation Server (TFS) 2012 or 2013 using TFVC from within IntelliJ IDEA, Android Studio, etc. similar to the current Git support.

      • Team Project creation through Eclipse TEE plug-in

        Currently through Team Explorer / VS you can create a new Team Project in TFS. Can this feature be included in Eclipse for non-windows developers?

          • Button to filter the checked in / undo pending changes files to only current project files (Eclipse plugin)

            Any chance of adding to the eclipse plugin, the same button there is in Visual Studio (filter by solution button)?

            If added I think it would be best to add it in the same place and situation when it shows in Visual Studio. In Visual Studio, when I'm about to do any check in I see this:

            https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/23242740/ScreenShots/2013-05-29%20Image_0002.png

            And when I click the button to filter by solution I see the list shrunk to only the files from the current solution like so:

            • Include in Team Explorer Everywhere the possibility to visualize UML diagrams

              We create our UML diagrams with Visual Studio Ultimate.
              However, there is a lot of developers in our team that use Eclipse with Team Explorer Everywhere and don't have any way to visualize these diagrams.

              • Support modern Visual Studio workspaces in the java SDK

                Recent versions of Visual Studio have changed the format of the on-disk cache. This means that any tools or applications created using the TFS SDK for Java (including Team Explorer Everywhere) cannot be used with these workspaces. This dramatically limits the usefulness of the SDK, since it can now only be used with old versions of Visual Studio or people who are using Eclipse.

                  • Fix problem with Xcode commit message format when linking to work items

                    I was testing out the new Team Foundation Server 2013 Git integration from an Xcode project. The basics are working fine, but I could not associate a commit with a TFS work item in the format using #ID in my commit message.

                    I just stumbled across this by accident.

                    If my commit message is "Fix for bug #4" the link is NOT made.

                    If my commit message is "Fix for bug #4 <space>" (with an extra space at the end), the link is NOT made.

                    If my commit message is Fix for bug #4 blah blah (with seemingly any other…

                      The product group behind VSTS and TFS uses User Voice as one of the channels that influences the priority of the backlog. The product owners pay close attention to the popular User Voice suggestions. That viral effect is the power of User Voice for us. You can read more how we use User Voice in this blog post.

                      Although we value all pieces of feedback and suggestions, we also know from experience that suggestions that haven’t been supported by anybody else for a year or longer will very likely not get much support in the future. Unfortunately your suggestion falls in that category. For that reason we have made the decision to archive your suggestion and to give back your vote to either create another suggestion, or add your vote to an already existing suggestion.

                    • make a cross platform UI that doesnt rely on Eclipse

                      The best part of using TFS is the tools. I have projects that are on other platforms and dont like the idea of having to install Eclipse and java just to use TFS. Create a nice cross platform Tool chain that doesnt rely on eclipse.

                        In eclipse with TEE plugin, I moved history view to other place, but the change isn't persisted after restart eclipse, I need to move this view to corresponding place again. It's better to persist the changes of history view as team explorer view.

                              • TEE-CLC remap option like tf.exe

                                To work with a multi-branch like structure, where you develop each feature in a separated branch and need to change branch constantly the remap function makes a huge difference.
                                The cross platform tf command line tool (tee-clc) does not have this options as his windows specific counterpart has.

                                • Keyboard shortcut for getting latest version in TFS plugin for eclipse

                                  To get a latest version of a project in TFS through eclipse tfs plugin, I need to go to that project and right click and chose get Latest version. Is there anyway to perform this with a keyboard shortcut.
                                  I tried with setting it in General>Preference>keys>get Latest version.
                                  I'm not able to perform that.
