  1. Don't require text phone

    This suggestion is migrated to Developer Community. Please use below link to view the current status.
    https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/idea/366552/dont-require-text-phone.html
    Offer Email as well as Text to authenticate. I don't own a text-capable phone, and would like to begin working with DevOps, but can't get an account because of the text requirement

    • Make the menu bar of the Test Case page's Steps section static

      This suggestion is migrated to Developer Community. Please use below link to view the current status.
      https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/idea/366551/make-the-menu-bar-of-the-test-case-pages-steps-sec.html
      Make the menu bar of the Test Case page's Steps section static, so that when we scroll down to see steps that do not fit in the Steps section, we are always able to format any of our content displayed in the 'Action', 'Expected result', and/or 'Attachments' columns without having to scroll back up to the top to access the menu bar. (see screen shot)

      • open release in new window

        https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/idea/366550/open-release-in-new-window.html
        When you kick off a release and you get the message saying
        <Release Name> has started, please could the link open in a new window ?

        Whilst working through release issues, I think it might be handy not to have keep navigating back and forwards through pages.

          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…

          • Put emojis are thumbs up or down symbols for work items.

            like github issue has the different kind of emoticons associated with the issue. like thumbs up down, or heart.

            So that you can assess how important it's for the people who follow the bug.

            Currently I see the hit count in workitems or bugs, but I don't know how that's used.

              Allow the Outcome field to be added from within a test case. When navigating to a linked test case from the User Story there is no way to mark it without going to the Test Plan

                • Artifacts

                  This suggestion is migrated to Developer Community. Please use below link to view the current status.
                  https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/idea/366545/artifacts.html
                  Greetings,
                  It would be great if timely and current artifacts for each customer project could get historic and current artifacts for situational awareness on the new projects they pick up. This occurs when management wants a flash cut of services. Technicians and Engineers become immediately responsible for systems they have never seen or worked with.
                  Regards,
                  Richard

                    Every time I move between the Sprint view and the Query view, it has started asking me where I want to go - which my team have noticed as I sudenly swear a lot through the day! I get the following options:
                    "Continue where you left off; My favourite Srptings; My Team Sprints; All Sprints", and similar for queries. This never used to exist - I would just go straight back where I last was. This has added dozens of extra clicks each…

                        https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/idea/366541/make-deployments-with-more-accurated-description-i.html
                        When a release is triggered and deployment created I can only see wrong version of branch deployed. It is possible to do not show primary marked release but only show last branch and version deployed. It causes a confusion because only shows primary artifact and not the deployed

                        • Allow changing code from within a Pull Request

                          https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/idea/366540/allow-changing-code-from-within-a-pull-request.html
                          In a typical PR there are usually comments requiring large changes as well as those requiring small changes (nit-comments, typos, code style, etc.). Right now for those small changes, you can make the changes by going to the code browser, clicking "Edit", and committing the change.

                          It'd be awesome if we could just make these changes in-line in the PR and commit them from there as part of 'Resolving' a comment thread.

                              We need a security control at the Org level to allow who can interact with the platform via the API. (tool, service, users, etc....registration types).

                              We need to control deal with our concerns about rougue scripts or tools others write going off the rails and affecting more of the product and data than was desired.
                              One bad code loop could destroy everything in a project.

                              Would be best if there were settings that allowed these controls at a feature level (Boards, Tests, etc)

                                Our project automatically adds a lot of long tags to each bug. This takes up a lot of space that can not be scrolled or minimized.

                                  I believe this should be a simple field to add. Convert the multiple line field to just a single line string Ex: how the "Teams" tab does it in excel. Having this field exposed will allow us do a far better job reporting on projects.

                                    I can do everything I need to do with pull requests programmatically except add work items to the pull request; I still need to go to the GUI for that. It'd be great if there were a way to do this.

                                    • Make work item rules = "Value in field cannot be ..."

                                      In order to help enforce certain state flows and actions taken during workflow we need a rule to ensure the value in a field is not XXXXX when the condition occurs (like a state change)

                                        How about the organization where I work with TFS2015? Would there be any way to use your extension Delivery Plans in TFS2015?

                                        I thank your attention
