How can we improve Team Services?

make it possible to move a Team Project between Team Project Collections

Currently you need to move an existing Team Project to a new Team Project Collection. I would like a feature to move Team Project between Team Project Collections without using TFS Integration Toolkit or other 3rd party tools.

    Enabling the ability to move projects between collections is a feature that we’re committed to delivering. However, due to the impact that this has across all of our development teams we are choosing to delay investments in this area in order to let those teams accelerate investments in DevOps workflows. We will re-evaluate picking this up mid-way through 2017 and will provide an update on our plan at that time.

        My company also really needs this feature and would like it to be in an update for TFS 2015 or at least for there to be some kind of tool provided that is supported, unlike the old TFS Integration Platform.

        Darn, it appears that I will be retired before this feature is implemented. Perhaps all of us will be.

        I know that moving Team Project between collections is NOT available in TFS 2017 RTM. Are we going to have to wait for TFS VNext (the next MAJOR TFS release) for this feature to be delivered or is it going to be possible in the next series of update releases to TFS 2017? I ask because we are running on TFS 2015 Update 3 and don't have any plans to upgrade to TFS 2017 in our production stack at this time. This ONE feature would make a compelling case and reason to upgrade to a newer version of TFS..and if it's going to be further off into the future that's fine...be stakeholders are asking if we should upgrade to TFS 2017..or just skip it and wait for the next MAJOR release train.

        Last question, will we be able to move EVERYTHING that is related to a team project (security groups, Collection level permissions, Build Server settings, Lab Management settings, etc)?

        We are also looking forward to such a feature. Is it planned for an upgrade in TFS2017?

        Please provide this functionality. It creates a great degree of pain to your government customers when we go through realignment of divisions.

        This would be a welcome feature. Since we are *very* close to 2017 at this point, any update as promised?

        I dont even understand how MS managed to sell the product without out some of the basic features.

        Shame

        And what is even more interesting is that companies have bought this.

        This is a major pain point for managing active team projects and archiving old ones. This feature should have been available since... yesterday may be?

      • Ralph SchindewolfRalph Schindewolf commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Please provide a way to archive collections or at least seamless archive team projects and move them to collections that can be archived. Really looking forward to this feature as we have team projects scattered over numerous TFS instances in different collections and we'd love to be able to consolidate down to one team project collections. 2017 can't get here fast enough for this feature.

        Thank you for planning this feature. There are so many of us waiting for it. My collections have been growing year after year and it is becoming a burden to administer them all separately. I look forward to 2017, the year that we are finally capable of merging collections.

        TFS Integration Platform is obsolete. All of the transactions are done by the migration user account, so your search of who and when things were done, is lost.
