Integrate Office365 and Visual Studio Team Services
Please integrate Visual Studio Team Services and Office 365 better, considering that an organization that is interested in Visual Studio Team Services will be likely to be using Office 365.
Integration should include:
- Authentication - users should be able to use their Office365 accounts and not only LiveID (or Microsoft Accounts).
- SharePoint site integration - from Visual Studio Team Services let me configure a site that I can host file sharing from, including the ability to use Office 365 as a SharePoint source. Administrative functionality should be included provided the user has the ability to administer Office365.
- SharePoint site integration, storyboarding - same as above, but specifically to better storyboarding integration. Currently users must manually "go somewhere else" to save their storyboard file, or add it under source control which is not ideal in either case. This should be seamless, especially considering the slightly non-technical nature of the audience for storyboarding.
There is definitely potential in some sort of integration between VSTS, Project, Planner, ToDo, Teams, Sharepoint, Groups, etc. With some fit and finish, VSTS could be used for projects outside of software development as well.
Weirdly, as James Sperring points out, Microsoft hasn't responded to this request - even though SSO is possible now and rudimentary "integration" with Teams is now possible,
James Sperring commented
This is the 3rd most popular request for Team Services currently, posted nearly 5 years ago, and yet no response at all?
Ami Schreiber commented
This is a REALLY great idea!

We would be interested in tasks integration with Project Online, and possibly MS Teams integration.
Mike Ennis commented
MS Teams integration would be spectacular. We have just started using Teams, and it's great - one stop shopping! we have started using it for all of our communication and TRDs. If we had the ability to link directly between Teams documents and discussions and VSTS work items, that would be very handy.

Integrate TFS Tasks and Microsoft planner to have single tool usage rather then scattered.
Hrvoje Kusulja commented
Please implement ADAL for Team Services
* being able to escalate Dynamics Cases to bugs
* Being able to map TFS tasks to Project Online
* integrated user authentication
Mike McGuire commented
+ 3 for integration of work items from team services into planner Tasks!
Dan Carpenter commented
Tighter integration with shared OneNote notebooks would be nice to serve as a wiki. For example being able to "@" reference TFS Users and "#" reference TFS work items natively in the notebooks would be slick.
Pascal Wallenius commented
My primary problem is also manage of requirements and other documentation that evolves dynamically as team members collaborate on the content. I would love a wiki solution rather than a better way of organizing document files.
Will Reynolds commented
Currently I'm having to duplicate tasks across VSTS and Planner. Could do with something like a "Show in Planner" option from the VSTS backlog.
Tim de Boer commented
To quote Meg Ryan.... Yes! Yes! Yes!
Integrate Project Server online with Visual Studio Team Services - should be a key integration....
Trevor Turner commented
+3 for adding Integration between Team Services and Office 365 Planner
+1 for adding O365 collaboration groups. They actually show up as possible groups in TFS online, once added they show up as [Team Foundation Server/.... but TFS errors out when the group is added because the function populates a GUID in the background and then the error is generated inline.
Aaron Giust commented
+1 for integrating with files stored on Office 365 whether it's a regular SharePoint Online library, OneDrive, or Office 365 group file share. The PowerPoint storyboarding integration is great but it doesn't fulfill the requirement completely. I want to add a feature item to my backlog and then link requirements, specifications, and architectural documents to it. I don't want to attach it. It needs to be a link because I'm going to link those same documents to other items in my backlog.
Ian Klek commented
I'd really like to see Team Services projects integrate with Yammer. Comments made on backlog board items should be visible in Yammer and maybe even Project, with a link to the item (and vice-versa).
David Schlum commented
Don't forget Yammer in the process...
Ok, so If I add my office 365 account in VSO it will generate an email that says "Join now". When I click that button in my email I get routed to the VSO online page except this login page doesn't show the "Sign in with your work and school account" option on the left side. Instead I goto VisualStudio.com and that option/link is there on that sign in page. Strange....
