    With the December 10th deployment, we have released our first phase of our rollout plan to deliver process customization to Visual Studio Team Services. You can now add your own fields, and change the layout of the work item form.

    We’ll continue marching down our backlog and add more customizations until we reach full parity with what we have in TFS. This is going to take some time and you can read more about our plans in this blog post: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/visualstudioalm/archive/2016/01/11/process-customization-futures.aspx.

        @Shawn, it is true that we are asking that our customers try and embrace the new process customization features from here on out. The private preview for process customization is available but is subject to review to make sure the process template and the project are a good fit. If you are on TFS on-prem today and need to move to VSTS and you are blocked because of process customization, then you may be a good candidate. Please email us at vsocustpt@microsoft.com and someone will contact you to review your process template.

        We were told by Microsoft VSOCustPT that you are no longer accepting requests for preview access to upload process via VSTS. Is this true? If so, then your answer below is inaccurate, because you are not making this feature available to us.

        We need to customize WIT field rules in VSTS. Is there any way to block certain group/users from creating/updating certain work item types?

        Hi

        Is it possible with visual studio 2013 + to uplaod a process template ? We are using a online instance of tfs

        1. Does this mean I can edit work items (add fields) on VSO at this point?
        2. I am trying using TFS power tool - seems there is no way.Do I need to use witadmin?

      • DaveDave commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Please add custom work item states. This is preventing us from using VSTS.

        Great news! However, after adding a custom field to a customized process template and applying to the project, I'm unable to add that field as a column in VS or using "choose columns" of an excel spreadsheet connected to a TFS query.

      • Rick McCallionRick McCallion commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Most definitely this is a worthwhile enhancement - I would say almost mandatory. We have been using TFS 2012 for the past year and we have added numerous fields and made adjustments to the workflow. As a result, it just isn't feasible to move to VSO without having the same functionality.

        I would like to change the process template for a VSO project. I have no existing work items yet but I have tons of code change history so do not want to delete the project and start over. How do I go about changing the process template?

        Our company has 1 state between InProgress and Done... and today we need Tags to solve the problem. Because of that when we're associating the Task in eclipse we need to change from 'Resolve' to 'Associate', and then open the Task and add the Tags manually... That is not very agile XD
