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.
Authentication – COMPLETED
Users should now be able to sign-in to VSTS using their corporate AAD credentials (same as Office 365). You no longer only need to use MSA.
SharePoint Integration / Sotryboarding – DECLINED
SharePoint Integration. Please find details about the future of our current SharePoint integration here: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/devops/2017/08/21/the-future-of-our-tfs-sharepoint-integration/. We are moving away from the tightly coupled integration with SharePoint we had in past releases.
Storyboarding. While we love the enthusiasm many have for our Storyboarding integration, at this time we’re choosing not to invest more energy in the Storyboarding scenarios.
Personally I would hate this. I wish there was an option to commit votes against an idea.
seriously. The visualstudio.com login experience is a mess. if you want to tie your access to your work email you have to create a personal account then tie the two together. God forbid you are also the MSDN subscription owner; then its even worse.

Project Online and TFS Integration
Vince Aimutis commented
We would really like to see the ability to use the VSTS/TFS Office Integration with MS Project plans that are saved in Project Online. Currently the Office Integrator only allows MS Project Pro (client) plans to be used with the integration and saving/publishing to Project Online can be flaky and is unsupported. This functionality works the majority of the time and should be supported.
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!
Joshua Childs commented
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.
Harsh Shukla commented
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.

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.
