  1. Share button across all pages

    Many pages through vsts/Azure Devops are very useful to share. e.g. I've just created a bug and want to ping somebody with the link; I've created a PR and again I want to send to that to someone; updates to the release definition can be shared with a deeplink to the definition with the team.

    Throuhgout Azure DevOps, there is no consistent "Share" button where I can click it and have the link copied to my clipboard (or on mobile, have the OS Share modal pop up). This would be a really nice streamlining feature for linking others to various…

      • Allow adding comments/emojis when a reviewer approves pull request

        When a reviewer approves a PR, it shows up on the Overview timeline as "Approved by ABC". Sometimes getting an approval is so exciting that the person who created the PR would like to thank the other person or react in some other manner.

        Adding the capability to responding to that message in text or emojis in the Overview timeline will add a fun element.

        • Support code change notifications on files (instead of just folders)

          Currently, I can create notifications for myself when someone creates a PR that touches a folder in source control. I'd like to be able to filter these to touching a specific file, if possible.

          • Add "Like" button in Discussion

            Adding a "Like" button in the Discussion area would give readers the ability to quickly acknowledge that a post was read/agreed to without having to type out a response until an update is necessary.

            • Generate random profile background color based on a unique attribute other than name

              Right now the random profile background color looks like it is assigned based on hashing the name. Unfortunately we have many people in the company with the same name, so having the background color doesn't help with figuring out which person is the right one.

              I think it should be hashed based on the email address which is guaranteed to be unique.

              • Make it so that no permissions are required to report a problem

                I tried to report a problem with Visual Studio Team Services and was told I don't have the permissions to do so. It doesn't seem like you should be blocking feedback. I wonder how many others' voices have been silenced by some bizarre permissions issue.

                There should be a way for everyone to submit a bug without any chance of it being blocked.

                    WIKI pages on team level
                    Would like to see WIKI being offered on team level. Our company uses the 1 collection, 1 project, multiple teams setup as suggested by the ALM rangers. The current WIKI implementation is not useful, as each team would like to have their own WIKI pages.

                    • Teams Notification Rather Then Email

                      It would be really handy to get my VSTS notifications in Teams rather then email.

                      For example, if someone mentions me in a Work Item, notify ➡ me in Teams not email 😊

                      • To create Developer or any team member's performance logs KPI

                        The VSTS has so much of information in terms of developer or any team member working on it. My idea is these days it is very difficult for any team member to give the details of task or achievement he has worked on month on month basis. My idea is to gather this information in VSTS as per personalised logged in developer or team member. Suppose I fix one issues end to end there can be provision in work item to assigned to my achievement based on objectives. Say for example I worked on 4 stories , 20 defects, made…

                        • VSTS Marketplace: add a "favorite" or "bookmark" option

                          On the VSTS Marketplace (https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/) please add an ability to "favorite" or "bookmark" an extension.

                          There are lots of extensions that sound very useful, but I don't have time to install right now. It would be nice to be able to favorite these so I don't forget about them. Ideally this feature would be available both on the main VSTS page (https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/), and the individual page for an extension (example: https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=ms-devlabs.RollUpBoard).

                          • Add open graph (OG) tags or other markup to allow apps such as Skype to create previews of tickets

                            Many sites support OG tags or Twitter card tags to allow messaging apps, etc. to create quick previews of content. Creating simple OG tags for each ticket would make sharing tickets much easier. For instance, at Skype, where I work, we often share short links to tickets. Being able to see the ticket's title (and other info such as who it's assigned to, status, priority, and so on) would be immensely useful!

                                    into a foreign language at a later time, you might want to have a

                                    deployed immediately (use of a translator)

                                        • INSTALL VISUAL STUDIO 2017 IN D DRIVE

                                          VS installs gigs of data on C. Does MS not know what, "Install on drive D" means?
