How can we improve Azure DevOps?

Export and import task groups

I find myself repeaing the process of creating the same steps in different Team Projects. It would be very useful if I could export a JSON representation of a Task Group and then import it into a different Team Project.

We are happy to let you know that your suggestion is completed and would be available on Team Services in 2-3 weeks. It will become available to the on-prem version in the next major version of TFS.

    We need a library in VSTS to share Task Groups between projects, with one definition of a Task Groups, and not import/export of a Task Group which can be different in each project.

    Does it exist in the TFS update 2? I don't see it in the WEB UI options.

    Sharing task groups across all projects in an account would be more useful for us.
